Tina Turner: Bigger Earner

06/15/1998 at 12:00 AM EDT

It's true: Tina Turner has legs. And oldsters outsell youngsters. Pollstar magazine has announced that the 61-year-old legendary diva's ticket sales for 95 shows (on what she called her "farewell tour") brought in $80.2 million for 1.2 million tickets, to earn the most money on the concert circuit in the year 2000. Teen heartthrobs 'N Sync came in second, taking in $76.4 million for 86 shows and selling 1.6 million tickets -- more than any other band. The rest of the Top 10 (in order): Dave Matthews Band, $68.2 million; Kiss, $62.7 million; Tim McGraw/Faith Hill, $48.8 million; Dixie Chicks, $47.3 million; Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band, $45.9 million; Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, $42.1 million; Metallica, $42 million; Britney Spears, $40.5 million. Altogether, $1.7 billion in concert tickets were sold. That tops the 1999 record of $1.5 billion.
