Madonna's MDNA tour is highest-grossing of 2012


Madonna has proved she's still at the top of her game, after her MDNA tour was named the highest-grossing of 2012.

Bing: Madonna's controversial tour

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.
