Live Nation racked up another record-breaking year in 2016. Global attendance is expected to exceed 70 million, which represents an 11 percent increase over 2015. Meanwhile, Campana says Live Nation broke its own U.S. ticket-sales record for a third consecutive year. "It was a big stadium year for us," says Zedeck. "We had Beyoncé, Guns N' Roses and Coldplay." Together, those three acts accounted for more than $609 million in gross box-office revenue, with Bey as 2016's Billboard Boxscore champion, accounting for $256 million of that sum. Fogel says his motivational mantra for 2017 is simple: "Don't screw up."
