According to figures reported to BillboardBoxscore, Celine Dion tops the Nov. 30-dated Hot Tours recap with US$33.2 million from the tour’s first 19 shows. That includes $7M in four shows at Montreal’s Bell Centre where she sold out at 53,864 tickets.


These figures boost Dion’s career-total to US$1.115 billion and 8.8 million tickets sold, as reported to Billboard Boxscore.

The magazine reports that while she ranked No. 5 on Billboard’s overall Top Pop Artists of the ’90s, her touring total by the end of the decade had “only” hit $77.9 million. It was in the 2000s with her first Vegas residency and in the last ten years with her second and greater expansion into international touring that her live business soared.

Her Courage tour supports the release of the album of the same title. It is her first album to top the US chart in 17 years since she debuted in the pole position with 2002’s A New Day Has Come.
