Lady Gaga has never been better!
Gaga is only a few months into her Joanne World Tour, which included postponing the European leg of the trek due to health complications, but she still holds the title for highest grossing tour by a female performer in 2017.
That’s according to data on Pollstar. They rank each artist by its average boxoffice gross per city worldwide and is based on information reported within the last three months. The latest data shows a tally for the week leading into Christmas. Overall, Gaga comes in at No. 4 behind The Rolling Stones, U2 and Coldplay, respectively. You can view the full list here.
Gaga’s tour has reportedly grossed a total of just under $75.8 million mark, though at the time of posting we could not verify that.

It’s worth mentioning that the Internet is not entirely convinced of the accolade. Some are speculating that Celine Dion will be named the woman with the highest grossing tour instead. Others are curious where Adele’s stadium shows fit. And then there’s Katy Perry’s Witness Tour, which does not make an appearance on the list at all – that is most likely due to her team not submitting the data. You can read between the lines for that.
Regardless of the who’s who, according to this chart, Gaga wins. Gaga always wins.
