Madonna has proved she's still at the top of her game, after her MDNA tour was named the highest-grossing of 2012.
The singer has been on the road since May, and the stint, her ninth world tour, has taken her around the globe. Her hard work has paid off -- the concerts have pulled in a staggering $228 million, making it the most lucrative tour this year, according to Billboard magazine.
The huge figure places the singer ahead of The Boss -- Bruce Springsteen's ongoing Wrecking Ball Tour has made $198 million. Former Pink Floyd rocker Roger Waters' The Wall Live show, which has been on the road since 2010, is in third place on the countdown with $186 million, while the Michael Jackson: The Immortal World Tour by Cirque Du Soleil has pulled in $147 million. British rockers Coldplay ($147 million), Lady Gaga ($124 million), Barbra Streisand ($40 million), Elton John ($32 million) and Justin Bieber ($30 million) also make the list.
