Pollstar's currency conversion is from the date of the concert. Billboard usually posts grosses from the day the agency sent to them.

But when the shows are in the US, I don't know why the gross is different.

It's just not the grossing amount. The attendance numbers are different too. Even the number of shows are different (as with the Hollywood date).

Do these difference between Pollstar and Billboard happen with other artists too? Is it usual?

This makes sense, but I don't understand why the attendance is different. :-?

Including pure sales + SPS Units her total should be over +10million singles sold in UK.

I could do a breakdown for you if you want.

BOMT was updated to 1,7million (confirmed by the UK charts company) and several of her singles have reached new certifications through units, both "Toxic" and "Oops I Did It Again" were certified Platinum (600K) this year alone.

[2015/07] 32,973 - Pretty Girls *

* pure sales

It's hard to estimate, but I'd say she's around 9 million pure sales. Unfortunately, we haven't had an update for most of these songs in a very long time. "Womanizer" should be extremely close to Platinum. I wouldn't be surprised if it gets certified before next year, or early 2019 at the latest.

"...Baby One More Time" will soon become one of the very few 3x Platinum singles by a female artist. It's done nearly 50k units over the past 10 months.

With streaming included, she's probably sold more than 15 million records in the UK.

Including streaming, "Womanizer" should be around 575K units now. It should be indeed close to Platinum status in UK.

You should worry about the fact that your girl isn't being able to sell out a single concert in a 2,000-capacity theatre with a miserable revenue:
9/30/2018
1 Show(s)
Christina Aguilera
Theatre at MGM National Harbor
Oxon Hill, MD
2,594 / 2,769 (94%)
89.00 - 199.00
$391,657
Live Nation Global Touring
Even the Bethlehem show for 1,883 fans grossed more than every concert from the Liberation Tour:
7/17/2018
1 Show(s)
Britney Spears
Sands Bethlehem Event Center
Bethlehem, PA
1,883 (100%)
350.00 - 450.00
$766,222
Live Nation Global Touring

Average ticket price: $406.92 8-)
Highest-grossing show from the Liberation Tour was attended by 6,051 fans:
10/6/2018
1 Show(s)
Christina Aguilera
Mohegan Sun Arena
Uncasville, CT
6,051 / 6,726 (90%)
76.00 - 126.00
$716,316
in-house Promotions
Or maybe you would like see that just one concert from the Piece of Me Tour at Radio City Music Hall, New York City, grossed more than the two concerts from the Liberation Tour at the same venue:
7/23/2018
7/24/2018
2 Show(s)
Britney Spears
Radio City Music Hall
New York City, NY
11,754 (100%)
73.00 - 546.00
$2,840,121
Live Nation Global Touring

Average gross: $1,420,061
Average tickets: 5,877
Average ticket price: $241.63

10/3/2018
10/4/2018
2 Show(s)
Christina Aguilera
Radio City Music Hall
New York City, NY
11,290 (100%)
73.00 - 546.00
$1,122,464
in-house Promotions

Average gross: $561,232
Average tickets: 5,645
Average ticket price: $99.42

:cry:

You will need to just triplicate the numbers to have what Britney grossed in one night.
The total so far:
The Liberation Tour grossed $2,958,237 from 6 dates reported.
The Piece of Me Tour grossed $2,840,121 in just 2 dates at Radio City Music Hall, New York City, and another $4,540,070 gross in 3 shows at The O2 Arena, London.
The Piece of Me Tour grossed $9.5 million in 12 theatre-dates in North America and the Liberation Tour will gross the same in the 21 dates that she did also in North America.

So, yeah, I think that sold out concerts are not exactly the point looking what she has grossed.

:wink:

Brainmaniac and matheusbelmont both of you just received a formal warning.
I’ll post it here as well in public so everyone can read it and take it as a warning.

If someone comes here trolling or flame baiting, report it and let the moderation team take action.
Attacking the artist on their avatar, going completely off topic, is just as bad (if not worse).

Any further incidents would result in a ban.
