The Live Nation-produced world tour, which spanned nearly three years, has become the fourth highest-grossing tour of all time

Harry Styles has grossed close to $600 million with his recently wrapped outing, Love On Tour.
The Live Nation-produced world tour kicked off in September 2021 and spanned nearly three years, combining post-pandemic shows in support of his 2019 album Fine Line with 2022-23 dates promoting his more recent Grammy-winning LP Harry’s House.
The $590.3m run, which combined arena and stadium shows, saw 4.7 million people attend 165 shows across five continents, according to Billboard.
This puts Love on Tour in fourth place on Billboard Boxscore’s top 10 highest-grossing tours of all time, after Elton John’s Farewell Yellow Brick Road ($939m), Ed Sheeran’s The Divide Tour ($776m) and U2’s 360° Tour ($736m).

Highlights of the tour include 20 sold-out nights at New York City’s Madison Square Garden, 18 nights at Los Angeles’ Kia Forum, and four nights at London’s Wembley Stadium which grossed $36.4m and sold 335,000 tickets.
The last full month of the tour was also notable, with Styles earning $105.4 million and selling 967,000 tickets from 15 stadium shows. This saw the former One Direction star shoot to number 1 on Billboard’s Top Tours chart in June.
The 29-year-old is only the second act to earn a nine-figure monthly gross after Bad Bunny raked in $123.7 million in September 2022 on World’s Hottest Tour.
Of the $600m gross, Styles raised and donated more than $6.5m to a long list of charities and nonprofit organisations around the world, including Planned Parenthood, Save the Children, Black Minds, Choose Love, the Sydney Zoo and Every Town for Gun Safety.
Styles, who is represented by CAA, wrapped the final show of Love on Tour in Reggio Emilia, Italy, on 22 July.
