The Top 10 World Concert Tours of 2009 reveal, again, that the girls are on top in music, taking 4 slots to just one by the guys.

It seems the public prefer the music and vocal talents of modern songstresses, not to mention their entertaining stage shows. In contrast the constant marketing and self-promotion by metrosexual males appears to be falling on deaf ears.

The numbers are impressive too, with hundreds of millions of dollars supporting the claim that the public ignore most critics and their constant bellowing about male musical puppets. The ranks and numbers for the girls are:

2. Madonna :: 2.18 million seats grossing $222m
5. Pink :: 1.55 million seats grossing $102.8m
7. Britney Spears :: 1.09 million seats grossing $94.8m
9. Tina Turner :: 0.8 million seats grossing $86.3m

The bands filling the other top 10 slots were U2 (No.1), Bruce Springsteen (No.3), AC/DC (No.4) and Coldplay (No.10). Classical star Andre Rieu was at No.6 and the joint Billy Joel & Elton John tour made it to No.8.

That’s right, not one solo male star in the top 10 for world tours between Dec 2008 and November 2009. Girls are doing it for themselves – and the public love it.
