The concert industry released the 2022 Concert Statistics, which had total receipts of over 5.5 BILLION DOLLARS from all the top worldwide tours for the year. Massive year for concerts!
The 2022 Concert Statistics were excellent for most acts. The top 5 tours for 2022 worldwide are as follows:
- Bad Bunny: $373.5 million
- Elton John: $334.4 million
- Ed Sheeran: $246.3 million
- Harry Styles: $214.4 million
- Coldplay: $208 million
Throughout the top 50 tours for 2022, women artists are doing better & better each year. Female concert artists such as Ariana Grande and Lady Gaga are probably the fastest-growing segment of the business. Yet, there is still a shortage of female concert promoters. The industry needs more women concert promoters.
Road Warriors such as Jimmy Buffett, Bob Seger, Bon Jovi, KISS, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Pearl Jam, Nickelback, Dave Matthews, Roger Waters, The Eagles, U2, Justin Timberlake, Foo Fighters, Journey, Def Leppard, Depeche Mode, The Rolling Stones, Elton John, and Metallica just had fabulous, successful 2022 tours.
Country music had blockbuster tours with Keith Urban, Kenny Chesney, Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, Shania Twain, Chris Stapleton, Carrie Underwood, and Jason Aldean doing top business. Brad Paisley had a very strong 2022. Garth Brooks has returned to the concert trail for 2022 and is doing “sold out” shows everywhere he plays.
Metal acts had a very strong 2022! Guns N’ Roses’ massive tour continued through 2022, celebrating their reunion. Slipknot and Iron Maiden had huge 2022 shows as well.
Comedy, folk, rap, blues, R&B, Christian, and jazz concerts had a great year in 2022.
My reason for discussing the previous monetary figures with you is to demonstrate how strong the concert business is, how it is still going, and how it is always looking for more markets to grow into.
Ticket revenue is up, and the summer concert season will be tremendous at all levels in 2022 – arena, outdoor, theaters, and clubs.
