The run of 48 joint concerts began in June, with the final date taking place in Seattle earlier this month (October 4). NME described the show as “a two-hour masterclass from a pair of icons who are seemingly hell-bent on proving that love conquers all”.
With the tour surpassing $150 million (£116m) gross back in August, the final figure is said to be at an enormous $253.5 million (£197m). The numbers were reported to Billboard Boxscore earlier this week.
The duo’s two nights at London Stadium – which formed part of their 18-date run of European shows – grossed $11 million (£8.5m) from more than 125,000 ticket sales. However, it was their two nights at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium that brought in the biggest bucks – grossing $14.1 million (£10.8m). On average, Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s took $5.28 million (£4m) per show.
‘On The Run II’ surpassed gross earnings from the couple’s 2014 tour by 132 per cent – with the first tour grossing $109.6 million (£85m).
In September, Beyoncé reflected on the tour as it reached its final 10 dates. “I’m doing what I love most with whom I love most,” she said. “I wish it could never end.”
Earlier this year, Beyoncé and Jay-Z released the surprise album ‘Everything Is Love’ under the moniker of The Carters. In a four-star review, NME said that the record’s “overarching mood is that of pure joy”.
