Rihanna Loud Tour: Singer Totals $90 Million in Sales
As 2011 comes to a close, Rihanna can pat herself on the back for her achievements this year, one of them being her Loud tour. The 23-year-old singer scored an impressive amount of total sales, racking up a gross of $90 million.
RiRi, who's on her sixth album, 'Talk That Talk,' now, claims one of the top 10 tours of 2011. She lands at No. 7 on Pollstar's Top 25 Worldwide Tours of 2011. The Loud tour, which ran in North and South America and Europe, came to a close earlier this month. In total, she performed 99 shows at 78 cities across the globe.
The 'We Found Love' songstress beat out pop stars Britney Spears and Justin Beiber, whose tours came in at No. 11 and 13 respectively. RiRi tops fellow pop acts including Britney Spears, Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, and Katy Perry. Usher earned a No. 17 placement with 59.1 million for his OMG tour while Jay-Z and Kanye West settled in at 48.3 million with their highly lauded Watch the Throne tour.
Her other goals this year include breaking her own personal record with 'We Found Love,' her first single off the 'Talk That Talk' LP. Rihanna's song is her biggest chart-topper to date, beating out past hits 'Umbrella' and 'Love the Way You Lie.'
