Madonna's controversial MDNA tour is the top-selling tour of 2012, it has been revealed.

The Queen of Pop's world tour, which has made headlines since it started in Tel Aviv in May, is the highest grossing tour of the year, banking around 228 million US dollars, reported Billboard.com.

The 72-date tour, which saw the 54-year-old singer flash some flesh on stage, was considered a huge success despite the controversies, because all the gigs sold out.

Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band came second on the list, followed by Roger Waters in third place.

Madonna beat some of the hottest tickets around including Coldplay, Lady Gaga and Watch The Throne collaborators Jay-Z and Kanye West, who also made the top 10.

Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift made it into the top 25 with their tours, which raked in less because they played less shows than Madonna.
