Madonna's 'Sticky And Sweet tour' is highest-earning ever for a solo artist
Madonna's 'Sticky And Sweet' world tour has been named the highest-grossing for a solo artist ever.

The tour, which finished in Tel Aviv yesterday (September 2), made $408m (£250m), according to promoters Live Nation.

However, Madonna is still some way from beating The Rolling Stones to the honour of highest-grossing tour of all time. Their 'A Bigger Bang' jaunt, which took place form 2005 to 2007, made $558m (£341m), reports BBC News.

Since August 2008, Madonna has played 85 shows, drawing in more than 3.5 million fans from 32 countries.

The 'Sticky And Sweet' tour broke Madonna's previous record for the most successful outing by a solo artist with her 2006 'Confessions Tour', which grossed $194m (£119m).
