Material Girl indeed. Madonna has just completed what is being called the most successful tour by a solo artist ever.

Madge’s “Sticky & Sweet” tour concluded on Wednesday in Israel.  The outing, which spanned more than a year, 85 dates and 32 countries, grossed $408 million, according to the BBC. That buys a lot of Kabbalah water. 

As anyone who attended the shows knows, those tickets didn’t come cheap. For example, tickets to her recent Copenhagen show were $266.

Whose record does the 51-year old break? Her own. Her 2006 “Confessions” tour grossed $194 million.

The Rolling Stones’ “Bigger Bang” tour remains the highest grossing tour: it ran from 2005 to 2007 and raked in $558 million. Maybe instead of “Bigger Bang, it should have been called “Bigger Bank…”
