Top Worldwide Tours Of 2011

U2, T-Swizzle, RiRi, oh my!

That's right, Pollstar has released the numbers for the top 25 worldwide tours that took place during 2011, and we have to say some of our favorites made some SERIOUS BANK this past year!

Check out the full list of acts, and what kind of money they're now rolling in…AFTER THE JUMP!

Well done, guys! You put on some FABOOSH performances!

Here's hoping you take the holiday season to rest up, kick back, and get ready!

We expect more ferocity in 2012!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Jay-Z Tops Hip-Hop's Cash Kings 2010 List

Jay-Z needs to update his song 99 Problems, because it REALLY doesn’t seem like he has too many problems at all!

At earnings of $63 million for the past 12 months, Jay-Z gets the title of #1 Hip-Hop Cash King by far. The list is based upon numbers from several music industry sources, including Nielsen, Billboard, and Pollstar.

Jay-Z’s earnings derive from not only tremendous album sales, but also his earnings from his worldwide tour, the 40/40 nightclub chain, and his stake in the New Jersey Nets basketball team.

Trailing far behind Jay-Z is P. Diddy, who earned the #2 spot with $30 million through album sales, television and film roles, his liquor brands, and Diddybeats ear-bud sales.

Following behind Diddy is Akon at $21 million, Lil Wayne at $20 million, Ludacris at $16 million, Kanye West at $12 million, and 50 Cent at $8 million, who took a break from music work to take on film roles.

While she’s not a male Hip-Hop recording artist, Jay-Z’s wife Beyonce blew absolutely everyone out of the water this year, with $87 million in earnings! Pretty damn impressive…maybe they should give her an honorary place on the Cash Kings list just because she’s that awesome.
