Madonna‘s hugely popular “Sticky and Sweet” 2008 concert tour earned more than any other tour last year, earning almost $282 million worldwide.

Canadian singer Celine Dion stepped out from the stationary confines of her Las Vegas concerts and started taking chances again — travelling to 24 countries to perform and finishing second in year-end tour earnings.

The lavish show, based around her Hard Candy album, featured a Ukrainian gypsy band, a vintage racing car and a “virtual” duet with Justin Timberlake.

It also became the eighth highest-grossing tour of all time in North America, Pollstar said.

Celine Dion’s gigs were 2008’s second-biggest earner, taking $236.6m (£162m).

The Canadian balladeer’s Taking Chances show visited 24 countries – compared to Madonna’s 17 – and marked her first world tour for eight years.
