02:01 PM Monday 12/30/13 | |

The Pollstar Year End Top 20 Worldwide Tours chart shows Bon Jovi in first place, Beyoncé holding down the No. 2 position and Pink landing in third.

2013 was a record year for the global concert industry.  Combined, The Top 20 Worldwide Tours took in $2.43 billion in primary ticket sales, a huge $470.6 million or 24 percent increase over the $1.96 billion generated in 2012.

More artists saw fat pay days in 2012.  During the year there were 13 tours that grossed over $100 million, compared with only six tours hitting that monetary benchmark last year.

Not only did Bon Jovi hit No. 1 across the globe, but the band’s $259.5 total gross was also the highest in its career.  And they did it without Richie Sambora.

There were also a couple of newcomers to the Top 20 Worldwide Tours.  One Direction grabbed 10th place by grossing a total of $114 million, and Bruno Mars clocked in at 17th with his $72.4 million total.
