New York, NY (Top40 Charts) The Formation World Tour was the 7th concert tour by American singer Beyonce in support of her sixth studio album, Lemonade. The all-stadium tour was announced following her guest appearance at the Super Bowl 50 halftime show. The tour started on April 27, 2016 in Miami, Florida and concluded on October 7, 2016 in East Rutherford, New Jersey. The run (tour) took in more than $256,084,556 with 2.2 million tickets sold!

While that number reflects the tour's overall success, each individual show was also stunning in the box score: each concert averaged $5.2 million and 45,757 paid attendees.

The tour's biggest stop belongs to London's Wembley Stadium, where on July 2-3, Queen Bey brought in $15.3 million with 142,5000 tickets sold. Before that, New York's Citi Field also raked in $11.5 million with 73,486 tickets sold in two sold-out shows. It was the highest-grossing stop in North America.

Arthur Fogel, the chairman of Live Nation's Global Touring division, says Beyoncé is the reason those numbers were as astounding as they were.
"When everybody acknowledges the greatness of the production but, more than that, everybody is blown away by her, that's the ultimate skill," he said. "To not only use the platform of a great production, but to rise above it as a performer and artist, that's her incredibly unique quality."
