Madonna has been lauded as the world's top touring female artist of all time.

The singer's latest 'MDNA' world tour has grossed $305 million at the box office, ranking it number ten on Billboard's Boxscore all-time chart.

The jaunt began in Israel on May 31, 2012 and concluded in Argentina on December 22, with Madonna headlining 88 dates overall.

The figures place Madonna between The Rolling Stones' 2002-2003 'Licks' tour at nine ($311m) and the band's 1997-1998 'Bridges to Babylon' tour at 11 ($274m).

Madonna's 'MDNA' tour finishes behind her own previous 'Sticky & Sweet' tour, which grossed $408m back in 2008-2009.
"It seems like I have said this a number of times following Madonna tours - five times to be precise: the overwhelming global success of the 'MDNA' tour proves yet again that Madonna is the greatest female touring artist," Live Nation's Arthur Fogel told Billboard.

"As this tour takes its place as one of the most successful in history, I can't help but enjoy the fact that it is the millions of fans who determine that. Thank you to [Madonna manager] Guy Oseary and the entire staff and crew of 'MDNA'."
