Bruce Springsteen & the E-Street Band is by far the biggest ticket seller of 2016 so far and Madonna isn’t far behind.

Springsteen leads the Billboard list of the top grossing tours so far this year based on reports from between November 10, 2015 and June 6, 2016. During that seven month period, Bruce and the gang brought in $135 million with 1.1 million paying ticketholders in 45 shows.

That number beats out number 2 Madonna by $11 million as she brings in $124 million with 741 thousand ticketholders at 58 shows. Third is Beyonce with $97 million with 783 thousand tickets sold for just 18 shows, an impressive showing with $5.4 million per show compared to Springsteen’s $3 million and Madonna’s $2.1 million.

Other veteran artists in the top ten were the Rolling Stones (#4), David Gilmour (#7) and Iron Maiden (#8).

The top ten:
Bruce Springsteen & the E-Street Band ($135 million)
Madonna ($124 million)

Rolling Stones ($84 million)
Coldplay ($68 million)
Justin Bieber ($57 million)
David Gilmour ($42 million)
Iron Maiden ($35 million)
Taylor Swift ($33 million)
