It turns out that while we may have just begun 2013, music fans still love the 80s. Sorry, Biebs! But, who crushed the competition when it came to making money off of concerts in 2012?

While Madonna may not have the album sales she had in the 80s, she did get the most butts into seats this past year (or at least charged the most).

According to Pollstar, she easily topped the list of the year’s highest-grossing tours with $296.1 million. The icon beat out another 80s star and Lite Rock listener favorite, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, whose tour brought in $210.2 million — not too shabby for a few guys from Jersey!

Third on the list, Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters who pulled in $186.4 million in 2012. Click here to see how the rest of the list breaks down.
