Taylor Swift is the Top Grossing Artist for 2015 with more than $250 million in ticket sales playing to 2.3 million fans. While that is not a global record, the fact that nearly $200 million of that total came from North America dates means she smashed the previous mark of $162 million set by the Rolling Stones in 2005.
Although The Rolling Stones placed 10th on the chart, the band had the highest average ticket – $174.50. Second is Paul McCartney’s $155.76 followed by Madonna ($127.55), Fleetwood Mac ($125.61), Elton John ($124.49) and U2 ($118.35). Luke Bryan’s $55.48 average ticket price was the lowest on the chart.
