Madonna just ended her MDNA Tour 2012 and what a tour it was! Gross ticket sales were $228.4 million. Madonna was big/huge when I was a kid growing up in the 1980’s, she was sexy then and she has not lost any of that appeal 30 years later. What is it? Of course she is very talented, sings well, dances well, just a wonderful overall talent, but so is Lionel Richie, Jeffrey Osborne, and list goes on. I don’t have the figures but I’m pretty certain they have not been on a tour that grossed $200 million in ticket sales. Madonna was contemporary then and she is contemporary now. I guess you have to change with the times but also maintain that flair that got you to the highest heights of your profession. Way to go Madonna with your bad self!
