Rihanna

Rihanna is closing out the year with some extra zeroes in her bank account. The pop superstar’s “LOUD” tour was among the top 10 tours of the year, grossing a whopping $90 million.

The international trek, which wrapped before Christmas, lands at No. 7 on Pollstar’s Top 25 Worldwide Tours of 2011. The “We Found Love” singer played 99 shows in 78 cities and averaged $75 per ticket during the six-month-long jaunt, which hit North America, South America, and Europe.

RiRi tops fellow pop acts including Britney Spears, Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, and Katy Perry. Other artists making the list include Usher, whose “OMG” tour raked in $59.1 million. Meanwhile, Jay-Z and Kanye West’s Watch the Throne outing grossed $48.3 million with only 35 shows.

    @Thats real, obviously they’re not on the list they didn’t do near as many shows. The people on this list have toured most of the year. Lil Wayne toured for like 2 months, and every show was sold out, so what’s your point. Check the Forbes list before you try to comment on peoples money again. (You’ll find him at the top.)

    @StarsRblind, FALSEEEE
    According to MTV and Billboard, the U.S. leg of Lil Wayne’s “I am Music Tour,” which kicked off March 18 in Buffalo, New York and hit over 60 cities before winding down September 11 in The Woodlands, Texas grossed close to $47 million dollars (Approximately $46,300,000).

    Lil Wayne did 69 shows… and of those 69, HE ONLY SOLD OUT 17… Number Don’t Lie right???? Thats 2x the amount of shows Jay-Z/Kanye West did with 30+ more feature artist to carry the tour…. and still grossed less!
    P.S. Get ya facts straight BITCH!

    flop = 11 Billboard #1′s & $90 mill grossing
    Loud tour, Gucci and Armani ad
    campaigns, international rock star
    status in only 6 years, 6 Top Ten
    albums in 6 years, over 20 million
    albums sold, performed in 7 major
    tours across the world…

    …and Rihanna’s only 23!

    Q: Where was Bey at age 23?

    A: Stepping on the shoulders of two other chicks to further gain her solo fame, no high fashion ad campigns, had only 2 number ones and 1 tour as a solo artist.

    So, who’s the flop again?

    BEYONCE.

    @ICYMFAH, And yet Rihanna will never have the longevity nor the talent as Beyonce do…..Rihanna fans are hooked on #’s and thats the only way they can defend her…….and a artist of her caliber because you guys make her out to be so talented and forecful she shouldn’t struggle with album sales every new album seeing that she has 11million followers,her single do well because they’re catchy and for the gym goers,I like Rihanna her music gets me in the mood to work out

    [Reply]

    ICYMFAH Reply:

    @Redchainsaw, No, all I am saying is Rihanna is an underdog from a totally different country and has made history for Bajan ppl, West Indian ppl, black ppl, and music lovers all over the world. What she has done in only 6 years is not comparable to what Bey or another other artist took a decade to do. I didn’t say she was the most talented thing walking, but she damn sure has talent and alot of appeal.

    BTW, Bey had extensive help from her father & mother, countless DC members, and Jay-Z for her longevity – while Rihanna has been grinding solo from the start with little help. She didn’t have all the support Bey did, went through a public scandal, and still came out on top. To me, that means a hell of alot more than what Beyonce has done.

    KaramelKisses Reply:

    @ICYMFAH, So you mad because B’s parents have a strong business acumen & assisted her child & her friends to have a successful career as a group? Then B met a successful man who helped furthered her career & he later became her husband? Trust me, Rih has NOT been grinding solo unless she is on an independent label & she’s NOT. So she has a machine pushing her like B, Gaga, Adele, Katy & every other major artist out.

    KaramelKisses Reply:

    @Redchainsaw, Thank you BUT if you ever notice when debating a Rihanna fan/stan, army/navy (whatever lame nickname they have given themselves) they only push #s that are to her favor. Debate this chick’s whole career … this bitch wouldn’t be this hot if it wasn’t for Jay blessing Umberella. For ICYMFAH, do you not think that Rihanna has a machine pushing her just like every other major artist out? She came out as a gimmick (the cute island girl but that image didn’t work so the machine went back to work to create a new one) and has been one every since. B was in a group since she was a little girl & don’t try to deny that DC did more to help Kelly & Michelle get solo deals that B.

    [Reply]

    KaramelKisses Reply:

    @KaramelKisses, Honestly I, to this day, don’t understand why people compare B & Rih. They are in 2 very different lanes … that of a boss (B) and an employee (Rih). B’s boss because she’s been hot for 15+ years being B and letting her talent & ability to entertain do the talking NOT being a gimmick. BTW 4 (released in Aug) still in the top 15, TTT (released early Dec) is sitting @ #32 on the charts.

    _e_ Reply:

    @ICYMFAH, Get you facts right…
    Beyoncé had: at leats 2-3 number one hits on every album, including DC3, but not “4″, cause it was the purpose. She was pregnant and could not promote or go on a tour. But still, all of her solo album were nr. 1, also in the US.
    Check the internet, she had several high fashion ad campaigns but stopped most of them after her marriage.
    She had 2 international tours wich were almost 100% sold out, everywhere, and just to mention two af her records, she won the billboard millenium award wich only MJ won before and won 6 grammys on one night!
    I am not hating on Rihanna but before writing, get your facts right!

    [Reply]

    _e_ Reply:

    @_e_, And by the way, at the age of 23, she was in one of the most succesfull band in the world, ever, and making hits, like Rihanna does now, but with more light lyrics and more clothes on. And she did not step on the other members. She and her family were the reason why DC3 got a record deal and became so succesfull.

    [Reply]

    ICYMFAH Reply:

    @_e_, LOOK – YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT THE HELL YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT SO YOU REALLY SHOULD STOP TYPING NOW.

    SINCE YOU DIDN’T KNOW, RIHANNA HAS BEEN A SOLO ARTIST SINCE SHE CAME OUT. BEYAWNCE HAS NOT. I AM NOT TALKING ABOUT WHAT DC ACCOMPLISHED. I AM TALKING ABOUT SOLO CAREERS. IS THAT SO HARD TO GET THROUGH YOU THICK ASS SKULL?

    BTW ALL DC MADE WAS SONGS ABOUT SUPERFICIAL MAN DRAMA, GHETTO WOMEN ANTHEMS, & THUGS AND DRUG DEALERS BEING DESIRABLE (“Solider”) AND SHE USED THOSE GIRLS TO FURTHER HERSELF. IF IT WERE NOT FOR DC, SHE WOULDN’T EVEN BE FAMOUS so fall the f*ck back

    ICYMFAH Reply:

    @_e_, Thanks for you response below. I did not mean to resort to calling you names because you are correct: I don’t know you. For that I apologize. I never want to be an Internet thug. The thing is, so many ppl are on here attempting to discredit Rihanna claiming her “lack of talent” and are ready to “check” someone meanwhile, they praise Bey and others without proper consideration. This such a positive post and to see ppl trash her for no reason is absurd. When you told me to “get my facts right” and advised me to check up on things before I write, I took offense to that – because I am well aware of what I say and knew exactly what I was speaking of. Also talking about Bey having on more clothes than Rihanna, when both of them have sexed-up their way into stardom. It was a misunderstanding and unfortunately many people wouldn’t own up to that. Once again my apologies and thanks for clearing that up.

    ICYMFAH Reply:

    @_e_, Clearly you didn’t read. Maybe you should go back. Slow down this time. I was stating what Bey had accomplished by age 23 (which was 04′… so she claims) you sap.

    She didn’t have any high fashion campaigns by age 23. You are talking about everything Beyonce has accomplished from 2001-2011, so I see you can’t read too well. That is a ten year span if you were having problems counting. I made it clear that by age 23, Rihanna has done well over what Bey has done in only 6 years (2005-2011). 10 years and 6 years are different you stupid nut.

    I am also talking of solo careers not DC – I made it clear that she stepped on the shoulders of two other chick to gain fame. Rihanna was solo from the start. She didn’t need to use two pitiful girls as her backup dancers/singers for people to see her as a star.

    ONCE AGAIN, GO BACK AND READ THOROUGHLY YOU IGNORANT FOOL.

    @ICYMFAH, Regardless of anything u state – Beyonce makes money off of Ri . I like Ri & congrats on her accomplishments . But she aint a talented musician , great work ethic tho . We can go all day back & forth on achievements but we KNOW who has authentic talent . That’s where the shade starts and ends .

    _e_ Reply:

    @ICYMFAH, Excuse me, but I thought, that what you wrote about Beyoncé was until 2011. You are right, it is impressive that Rihanna went so long in just a 6 year old carrier, and i accept that you are proud of her, but that does not mean that everything you write is right, an the same thing with me. I accept that I misunderstood what you wrote, and I am sorry. Rihanna has a great talent and the same with Beyoncé and I wish that both of them will have a long and good life+carrier, and thats it! I do not say that Rihanna is talentless, her voice is unique, but I hope that she in the future will use her voice more than being a sex-appeal, cause singing is her job.
    And at last, I still do not agree with some of your points, but away from that, you should not write something like that, about me, without knowing me, cause you see that it is all a misunderstanding. Control your language, use of words and anger on the Internet, cause not everybody will understand, and admit it if it is a misunderstanding.

    ICYMFAH Reply:

    @No no no no!,

    I’m sorry but 90 mil is 90 mil and not all artist’s shows sell out – and I follow all artists, not just Rihanna. I am sorry to inform you that Kill Bill is a f*cking idiot and is very incorrect. You are also incorrect. If you had read correctly and knew what you were speaking of, you would know that she did not lower her ticket prices – she went to a variety of large and small venues based on demand of buyers. When you have been featured on or headlined 7 major tours in only 6 years (as Rihanna has) demand may slow down a bit when you get to your seventh tour. Be sure to know the facts before you just on the bandwagon of some imbecile like Kill Bill.

    Rihanna is aware of who she is: an authentic Caribbean, international superstar. She is an underdog and has rose to fame quicker than Bey ever would coming from another country. She had every chick in America cutting their hair back in 08-09 and has original dancehall dance moves that she didn’t get off of YouTube. *no shade* lol

    I personally believe Rihanna is one of the worst performers and I think it’s sad that so many people pay to see her live and leave probably thinking, “wow, that was amazing!.” Every tour video I see of her she is just walking around on stage, shaking her ass and tits, and *painfully* attempts to sing. Her voice does not translate well on stage and it goes to show that producers tweak around her voice in the studio. This just goes to show what type of society we live in and how people who lack in talent can be successful and warp the younger gengeration who give into it. It’s scary to think that her tickets averaged at $75. I probably wouldn’t go if it were free, and if I did I would have to be pretty intoxicated.

    In late May 2009, Knowles’ label announced through a press release that the singer decided to set aside 2,000 seats for each date on her forthcoming North American tour at a discounted price of $20. After already selling 1,000 tickets per show for the special low price, the last 1,000 discounted seats for each show were made available to the public on May 29 2009, 2009 through Ticketmaster (with the exception of the artist’s four-night residency at the Encore at Wynn Las Vegas).

    TO END IT… Rihanna has worked for it all. aplauds.. Boo BEYONCE has had 3 tours alone that over sold that. and DC3 twice. and Somebody said at 23 wur was BEYONCE. she had it. and the GRAMMYS and #1 albums, singles etc…. As much as this is for RIHANNA. this is why its really not mentioned on TV or nada. cause artist such as SADE whose LEGEND. can come in 10 years at a time. do less shows. and outsell. lol. BEYONCE has been here coming next year 16 st8 years.

    her achievements alone. NO OTHER FEMALE in the next 30 years will get… opps um and half of that 90mill goes to BEYONCE. umhmm RIHANA is signed under ROCK NATION. whom will get the MOST of that money.. lol……………….. SMH @ the girls..Obviously that 4got.

    @Kia, how wrong you are! beyonce only grossed 86 million in 2009, check pollstar! she grossed the 17 million in 2010. if you add both she grossed 103 million TOTAL. stop trying to inflate numbers, and beyonce did over 100 shows, not counting the 2010 and extra shows she did.
    not trying to shade but riri did 90 million in one year, and beyonce did 86 miliion in one year!

    Dont get why people compares Beyonce and Rihanna. Both are talented, but they are totally different! Beyonce is older, had more experience and now has a fulfilled family life, but Rihanna is only 23 years old! She has allot to do to get to that stage where she will never be forgotten. I am not saying that the music Beyonce made is legendary and neither Rihanna. Both have a long carrier, and in the future, so dont compare them cause they come from totally different places. Beyonce did not have that much success when she was 23, cause she didnt have any famous people as her mentor, but Rihanna had many, and that also includes Jay-z and Beyonce! I am impressed that Rihanna has came so long in just six years and I really hope that it continues in the future, where their fans doesn’t fight about who is the best. If we look away from the gossip, they are good friends so why should their fans fight about these silly things?
    Beyoncé is GOOD and Rihanna is GOOD, thats it!!! They are different so DONT compare them!!
    Once again, congratulations to Rihanna, may you have great succes as Beyoncé!

    Those are great numbers in a globally depressed economy.I will say i’m not a fan of her LIVE performances but i’ve seen clips of this tour and i’m def dialing back my haterade for Riri.”We found love” is a pop sensation! But the girl does need to go rest.6 albums in 6yrs is no joke! Damn,,,,I do wish Beyonce has her baby,gets fit and heads out on a world tour late 2012.Tour is where the $$$$$ is at! Go Riri Go Bey!!
