Best Music World Tours Of All Time


The Top Ten

1 History Tour (1996-97) - Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson is a music legend.Happy to see him in 1st position.History tour is always special for me because it was the time Michael visited my country,India.

He's a legend, the most popular, most awarded, highest paid, most albums sold etc... and why did he achieved that one factor is that he can pull out the best tours simply because he is the complete package...

Its was a GREATEST TOUR! 80 concerts! And every time he dancing!

Scream, they don't care about us, stranger in Moscow, earth song, come together, history, billie jean, rock with you, beat it, thriller, bad and man in the mirror

2 Welcome To The Universe (2006-2007) - 30 Seconds to Mars

MARS is the hardest working touring band there is, which is why their 'This Is War tour (2009-2011) earned them a guinness record. Its just a testament of how passionate they are about their music and fans.

3 Confessions Tour (2006) - Madonna

Her best tour ever! I'm seeing it right now

Probably, one of the best concerts ever created. So powerful an complete. Definitely, an amazing journey to witness.

Madonna has each time redefined music and concerts. She is an absolutely phenomenal showgirl. From her dance and performance to the huge production including humongous screens, numerous hydraulic lifts and excellent props simply add on to her shows. I have to date been to three of her tours, the first being confessions tour where for d first time I had seen what technology and the queen of pop could combinedly do, the next was sticky an sweet tour and the last was her MDNA tour. All 3 of her tours were record breakers and she is the ultimate Goddess of the touring and muic industry.

Could people please stop giving Michael Jackson a pity vote! I like him too, but I don't think he's as good as, let's say, Madonna. She has redefined music unlike MJ. And in the touring business, Madonna has an incomparable knack for theatrics and performances - they're like a slideshow of true art. Other artists - including late MJ and 30 Seconds To Mars - just come, dance a bit maybe, sing, and leave.

6 The Biggest Bang Tour (2007) -The Rolling Stones

It was a big tour for them, hence the title. they played the biggest concert of there career and they had great setlists. they also filmed shine a light

7 Blonde Ambition Tour (1990) - Madonna

This was the best tour Madonna ever did. She completely redid her look, style, performance and set the stage for future female artists. No female pop star comes close to what Madonna has done in her career.

Madonna at the peak of her career. Yes, the tour caused many controversies and one of them was her 'Like A Virgin' performance. But, you can't deny how artistic the show was and how good her voice was. This was definitely her best tour.

The best the queen of queens


8 Awakening World Tour [2014-15]- Jackie Evancho

Simply the most beautiful singing voice in the world.

Building on her amazing Dream With Me tour,
Her voice is maturing and changing, and even more magnificent.

Each concert is better than the one before. - BobG

See her third PBS special starting Nov. 30, 2014.

9 PopMart Tour (1997-1998) - U2

Pioneering the way in touring with this tour as usual, within their most eclectic, adventurous era.

A total visual mind blower, plus great music from U2's most creative era

Zoo T.V. is the best tour of all time easily...

This was one of the best tours I have seen since Michael Jackson's Bad Tour back in the 80's. Her performances were amazing, the stage was fantastic, and she went all around the world. She even sold out some shows, this was the experience of a lifetime. And Gaga even took the time to talk to her fans personally during the show. She didn't just sing and dance, she connected with us, her Little Monsters. If you are a Little Monster reading this, please vote it up higher, you know how amazing this tour was, vote it up, for our Mother Monster.
