Beyoncé on Pace to Make $100 Million From Mrs. Carter Show World Tour

Bey racking up millions in ticket sales.

Published June 13, 2013

From endorsement deals to album sales, Beyoncé knows how to rake in the big bucks and judging by the reception of her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour, the winning streak is unbreakable.

Bey is expected to earn as much as eight figures in ticket sales from the tour.

With the international portion wrapped up, Mrs. Carter has already pocketed a fat paycheck according to Billboard's Boxscore figures. A six-night gig at London's O2 Arena added $9.7 million to the singer's bank account, her short tenure in Manchester netted an extra $4.6 million, and in Germany she picked up more than $3 million for shows in Zurich and Berlin respectively.

On a pay-per-show basis, the Grammy winner makes anywhere from $1.55 to $1.6 million a night for more than 60 dates, bringing her tour sales total to $100 million.

Announced after February's Super Bowl XLVII halftime performance, the global trek sold out within minutes domestically. Even without a new album for fans to sing along to, Beyoncé has taken full reign of the multi-date stint, using the opportunity to premiere new music, and denying photographers press access. To maintain control of the images made public, the "Grown Woman" singer hired Frank Micelotta to handle all photos, which are distributed to the media after each show.

In the next couple of weeks, Bey will bring the Mrs. Carter Show World Tour stateside. She's also headlining the BET Experience, which kicks off June 28 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Melanie Fiona will open for the superstar.
