The final box office counts are in for Justin Timberlake‘s 20/20 Experience world tour that wrapped with a two-show engagement at the MGM Grand Garden arena in Las Vegas to kick off the new year. Overall ticket sales from the tour totaled $231.7 million at the end of the 14-month trek that was attended by 1.9 million fans at 128 performances. Sales from the final six venues on the tour were just reported, earning the pop star the No. 1 ranking in the weekly Hot Tours tally (see list, below).

Concerts were staged in 54 venues in the U.S. and Canada during three legs. In Europe, the tour stopped in 16 countries during treks in April and May of 2014, as well as June and August. Shows in two Middle Eastern cities, Tel Aviv and Abu Dhabi, were included in the mix along with a six-city jaunt through Australia and New Zealand. Timberlake also made a handful of festival appearances during the summer, performing on the main stage at festivals in Portugal, Morocco and the U.K.

The final two-show stint in Las Vegas on Jan. 1 and 2 marked his fourth appearance at the MGM Grand Garden during the tour. He played a total of six concerts at the arena beginning with a two-night stand at the end of November 2013 during the first North American leg.  He returned twice in 2014, performing for a packed house on Aug. 8 and again on Nov. 28. The two-show finale at the beginning of 2015 capped his stint at the MGM Grand Garden, the most-played venue during the tour.

He also performed six shows in the Los Angeles metropolitan area, but in three different venues.  Staples Center, the Forum in Inglewood and Anaheim’s Honda Center each hosted the tour for two nights. Fans in the metropolitan New York/New Jersey market had five opportunities to see the pop star. He performed twice at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center and also at Madison Square Garden, along with one show at the Izod Center at East Rutherford, N.J. Five cities hosted the tour for three performances: London, Chicago, Philadelphia, Toronto and Auckland, New Zealand.

With the 20/20 Experience tour, Timberlake ended 2014 as the highest-grossing solo touring artist of the year, yet he ranked No. 2 on Billboard‘s list of the top 25 tours. One Direction nabbed the No. 1 slot in the year-end rankings with $290 million in ticket sales from the boy band’s massive Where We Are stadium tour.
