The first box office counts have been reported from Justin Bieber’s second year on the road with the Purpose World Tour. Revenue from the first 10 concerts of 2017 totals $40 million, bringing the tour’s overall gross to just under $200 million since launching in March 2016. So far during the past year, more than 2.2 million tickets have been sold at 122 headlining performances worldwide.
The trek launched on March 9, 2016, in Seattle. Its 2016 run of shows concluded Nov. 29. The tour picked back up in 2017 on Feb. 15 in Monterrey, Mexico.
Although the Purpose Tour was booked primarily in arenas in North America and Europe during its first year on the road, the 2017 schedule began with stadium performances in Latin America and Oceania. The $40 million in revenue from this opening 10-show stretch earns the tour the top ranking on the latest recap of Hot Tours (see list below). The sold ticket count so far this year totals just over 466,000.
