The singer's tour grossed a total of $228,406,085 (£141 million), selling out every one of its 72 dates.

Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band totalled $199,371,791 (£123m), with Pink Floyd founder Waters in third with $186,466,703 (£115m).

Madonna's 'MDNA Tour' saw her booed by French fans for delivering a short set and criticised for wielding a gun on stage following the July Colorado shooting.

'Michael Jackson: The Immortal World Tour' by Cirque du Soleil was the fourth highest-grossing tour of 2012, followed by Coldplay in fifth and Lady GaGa in sixth.

Madonna outsold Lady GaGa by three-to-one in Latin America.
