It’s obvious that fans were eager to see Sade make her long-awaited comeback. Her world tour, which marked the end of the singer’s 10-year hiatus, took the number 10 spot and sold over 588,000 tickets, grossing a little over $53 million for 59 shows.

A noticeably absent pop star on the list is Rihanna, who’s worldwide “Loud” tour made headlines and reportedly saw sold-out stadiums all year long. Rumors of the singer’s lagging ticket sales have plagued her tour.
