He makes us proud yet again!
Music publication Pollstar took a look at the top 100 grossing artistes of 2015 (based on their individual tours) and ranked them. The list takes into account money earned from production, ticket sales, and also takes into account number of cities visited in the US and worldwide.
Their mid-year Top 100 ranking for North American tours has The Rolling Stones topping the list, with the likes of Fleetwood Mac, U2, Maroon 5, Neil Diamond, Taylor Swift and Elton John in the Top 10 tier. And while several country music stars populate the chart, it is surprising to find one Indian name feature on this list.
AR Rahman comes in at number 82, grossing $4.5 million between January 1 to June 30 this year, after playing at 16 shows in 14 cities. He’s ranked higher on the list than the likes of Justin Timberlake, Rod Stewart, Rascal Flatts, Marc Antony, Steve Aoki and Ricky Martin. Now that’s something to be proud of!
