(NEW YORK) -- Jay Z and Beyonce's marriage may be on the rocks if rumors are to be believed, but their business endeavors continue to prosper. Their latest On the Run tour has proved to be extremely lucrative, grossing more than $100 million in ticket sales, according to Omar Al-Joulani, VP of North American touring for Live Nation, the promoter/producer of the tour.
Despite early reports of stagnant ticket sales, the trek has attracted a total of more than 850,000 concertgoers.
Al-Joulani tells Billboard, "Everybody’s winning."
"These shows sold tremendously well at the end," adds Al-Joulani. "It was a very successful tour, and we’re pleased to have that big gross number at the end."
Al-Joulani continues, "This has been a lot of work, but it has been the smoothest, most fun run that I’ve ever worked on."
The duo's North American outing concludes August 6 at AT&T Park in San Francisco. Up next, the Carters will head to Paris to film their HBO concert special on September 12.
