List of highest-grossing concert tours by Latin artists

From Wikipedia the free encyclopedia

Bad Bunny (pictured in 2019), has the all-time highest-grossing Latin tour and remains the highest-grossing live Latin music artist

This is a list of the highest-grossing concert tours in the Latin industry.[a] Billboard and Pollstar are two major publications that regularly provide the official figure of concerts' gross revenue worldwide. Billboard launched the boxscore ranking in 1975 through its spin-off magazine Amusement Business, and it has been also featured in the Billboard magazine itself since the issue date of October 3, 1981.[1] Pollstar began reporting the box office data since November 29, 1981.[2] However, there are many missing data in the early reporting of both publications, hence some few claims are mostly based on other non-specialist sources.

The touring industry in Latin music is dominated by male artists, with Jennifer Lopez, Shakira and Karol G being the leading female Latin artists on the list. The highest-grossing concert tour by a Latin artist belongs to Bad Bunny's World's Hottest Tour.
