Elton John tops 2020 touring list with 47 gigs

Elton John has been crowned the king of 2020 touring after squeezing in 47 shows.

The rocker sold almost 800,000 tickets and raked in over $114 million from his 2020 concerts to land the year’s top-grossing tour, according to figures reported to Billboard Boxscore.

Figures are based on gigs staged between November 1, 2019, and October 31, 2020, and include traditional dates, drive-in concerts, and live stream events.

Elton managed to stage all 47 of his Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour concerts in North America and Australia before COVID-19 shut the tour down in mid-March.

The Rocket Man hitmaker rises from last year’s number four act to the top of the 2020 countdown, ahead of Celine Dion and U2. The Trans-Siberian Orchestra and Post Malone round out the 2020 top five.
