Elton John And Bad Bunny Were 2022’s Most Popular Touring Acts

Elton John was the most in-demand touring act of 2022 in terms of ticket sales, online ticket marketplace StubHub announced Wednesday, days after trade publication Pollstar reported Bad Bunny had the highest-grossing North American and global tours of this year, as artists return to touring and the concert industry rebounds from a Covid-imposed dip.$6.28 billion. That’s how much money the top 100 concerts worldwide grossed in 2022, according to Pollstar. That’s a 13% increase from 2019, before the live music industry suffered a major dip because of the Covid-19 pandemic. Taylor Swift’s “The Eras Tour,” which kicks off in 2023, has the “possibility of crossing the unthinkable $1 billion mark,” Pollstar said. It’s Swift’s first tour since 2018 and one of the largest of her career, and early ticket sales caused calamity for Ticketmaster. Last year, the Rolling Stones grossed more than any other touring act with more than $115 million worldwide. Styles had the most popular global tour of 2021, selling 669,000 tickets. The MLB World Series between the Astros and Phillies was the most in-demand sporting event 2022, StubHub said.
