Another ''Billboard'' Honour For Sir Elton

Written by Chief Editor.

In October, Elton won the Best Rock Tour category at the Billboard Music Awards. Now he finishes 2020 with the year's top-grossing tour, according to Billboard Boxscore.

Before COVID-19 stopped concerts in their tracks on the 12th of March, Elton earned $114.1 million, sold nearly 800,000 tickets, and played 47 concerts. Even with fewer gigs, the vocalist still outpaced his mid-year 2019 gross by 13%, already at 59% of his full 2019 gross. Given a full 2020, he probably would've cleared the $200 million milestone.
Billboard's Year-End Boxscore charts are based on engagements that played between November 1, 2019 and October 31, 2020. Gross and attendance totals include traditional touring, drive-in concerts, and livestream events.
