Taking Chances World Tour – Celine Dion
Celine Dion is one of the most successful Canadian born pop singers of all time. Active since 1980, it was a little over two decades before Dion set out on her Taking Chances World Tour. The tour began in 2008 and ended up bringing in a ton of dough.
It was her first tour after taking an extended break and the ticket sales proved that her fans needed more Dion in their lives. After inflation, the tour grossed an incredible $326,058,136. Dion’s tour director Jamie King was also behind Madonna’s Confession’s World Tour.
