-One Direction come in at no1 with a nearly $300 million gross after performing for more than 3.4 million fans throughout 69 shows.
-Justin Timberlake continues as a major touring force with his fifth concert tour grossing more than $200 million. And it's still not over with dates scheduled until January 2015!
-Proving that rock bands still have what it takes to attract big crowds, The Rolling Stones, Eagles and ex-Beattle Paul McCartney all find themselves within the top10.
-Katy Perry is the top female touring act for 2014 with her Prismatic Tour bringing in $108 million from 82 shows. It has to be noted that this is the first tour from Perry to cross the $100 million mark while she also beat touring powerhouses Beyonce, Lady Gaga. Elton John and Bruno Mars.
-Beyonce comes in at no12 on her own with her extended Mrs.Carter World Tour and at no8 with her husband and touring partner Jay-Z in their On The Run Tour.
-Miley Cyrus lands at a relatively lowly no17 with an almost 58 million dollar gross which is however lower than the last tours of Katy Perry, Rihanna, Britney Spears and the current tours of Beyonce and Lady Gaga proving that she still has some time before she firmly positions herself in the music touring elite.
-Lady Gaga, although still a big touring attraction, fared averagely this year grossing a little over $80 million with her ArtRave show. For comparison her last tour offering the Born This Way Ball, although cut-short, still grossed $181 million back in 2012.
