Ariana Grande’s Dangerous Woman Tour Earns $71 Million

Ariana Grande's Dangerous Woman Tour brought in $71 million according to final numbers reported to Billboard Boxscore.

Pop star Ariana Grande heads up the latest tally of Hot Tours (see list below), based on final box office counts reported from her Dangerous Woman Tour, which wrapped in September.

Stretching over seven months, Grande’s world tour covered five continents during its run that ended with an overall gross topping $71 million. At 75 headlining performances worldwide, the overall number of sold tickets totaled just over 875,000.

The tour launched on February 3 and began with a trek through 36 cities in the U.S. and Canada through mid-April. The European leg that followed kicked off on May 8, but was postponed two weeks later after the terrorist attack that occurred after her performance at Manchester Arena.

She returned to the road on June 4 and began the remainder of the European run with the One Love Manchester concert, held at the city’s Old Trafford Cricket Ground, benefiting the Manchester Arena’s bombing victims and families. The tour’s subsequent jaunts through markets in Latin America, Asia and Oceania continued through Sept. 21, wrapping with a finale held at Hong Kong’s AsiaWorld-Arena.


During the Asian leg, Grande scored the tour’s highest-grossing engagement at Makuhari Messe, a Tokyo convention complex that hosted more than 52,000 fans this summer. The three-show run racked up $6.5 million in sold ticket revenue from concerts on Aug. 10, 12 and 13. A two-show stint at New York City’s Madison Square Garden claims the top gross among the trek’s North American dates. The Manhattan venue logged a gross of $2.9 million from 26,635 sold seats at sellouts on Feb. 23 and 24.

Sales from the Dangerous Woman Tour jumped by about 70 percent compared to Grande’s previous outing, 2015’s Honeymoon Tour, which logged sales in the $40 million range during an eight-month run. Attendance also rose on this year’s trek, with about 70,000 more tickets sold than two years ago. Staged primarily in arenas, both tours were worldwide in scope and offered right at 80 performances.
