Beyoncé's 'Formation World Tour' Earns $210 Million in Ticket Sales
Beyoncé clearly knows how to get the world in “Formation.” She’s done such a great job at that, in fact, that her “Formation World Tour” has grossed more than $210 million, and she’s not done yet.
Billboard reports that Queen Bey’s global run on the “Formation World Tour” has generated that whopping figure by selling more than 1.8 million tickets for 40 performances with nine more to go.
The tour has gone through North America and, more recently, through Europe, where she performed 17 shows at 16 venues, generating $86.9 million in box office sales.

That leg of the tour led to some milestones. Her two-day extravaganza at London’s Wembley Stadium, for instance, drew 142,500 members of the BeyHive on July 2 and 3, earning $15.3 million. That’s the sixth-highest gross of the year for an artist of any genre, according to the report.
The Euro run also featured the best-attended show of the “Formation Tour.” That distinction went to Stade de France in Paris where a total of 75,106 tickets were sold. The second best-attended show was the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif., where 55,736 tickets were copped.
Revenue from the European stretch of the tour also earned Beyoncé the No. 1 slot on this week’s Billboard tally of “Hot Tours.”
Now, ‘Yoncé takes a brief pause before launching the second U.S. leg on Sept. 7 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. The nine-city trek will take Queen Bey across the country once again, capping things off Oct. 2 in Nashville.
