Madonna tour is highest-grossing of 2012

The Material Girl has been on the road since May this year, and the jaunt, her ninth world tour, has taken her around the globe.

And the hard work has paid off - the concerts have pulled in a staggering $228m (£141m), making it the most lucrative tour this year, according to Billboard magazine.

The huge figure leaves the singer way ahead of The Boss - Bruce Springsteen's ongoing Wrecking Ball Tour has made $198m (£123m).

Former Pink Floyd rocker Roger Waters' The Wall Live show, which has been on the road since 2010, is in third place on the countdown with $186m (£115m), while the Michael Jackson: The Immortal World Tour by Cirque Du Soleil has pulled in $147m (£90.9m).

British rockers Coldplay ($147m), Lady Gaga ($124m), Barbra Streisand ($40m), Sir Elton John ($32m) and Justin Bieber ($30m) also make the list.
