Contributed by StilettoSadist: Rolling Stone’s annual list of music’s top fifty earners has Prince in the peak position edging out Madonna with $56.5 million. Prince’s tour took in $90.3 million in ticket sales scoring the year’s second-highest-grossing tour and thanks to low production costs, his net take was larger than top grosser Madonna’s. Madonna came in right behind with $54.9 million. Despite playing only fifty-six concerts in 2004, Madonna hauled in more money on the road than any other artist. She also demanded and got ninety-five percent of her shows’ profits. Down at No. 37 is Britney Spears who made $13.8 million even though her tour was cut short from a knee injury. The list of the top 50 earning musicians at rollingstone.com has since been removed.
