Soul 2 Soul II Rises To Top Tour In The Nation

Even without the totals from this weekend’s three big tour closing concerts in Las Vegas, Pollstar Magazine tells A&O that the Tim McGraw-Faith Hill Soul2Soul II tour has pulled ahead of Madonna and now ranks as the top grossing tour overall.

At just under $86 million, Tim and Faith are unchallenged at the Top spot for now with an estimated final gross figure for the year that could reach just under $90 million. Pollstar projects the only act that could overtake Soul2Soul II is The Rolling Stones. They still have 16 stadium shows on the books for this year, but they are not all sold out. If the stones maintain their average gross figures for these shows they could top well over $100 million and finish at the top of the heap. Bottom line is, Tim and Faith are the Top Grossing country act of 2006 and will likely finish the year as the #1 or #2 tour overall.
