    Lady Gaga's "Monster Ball" tour expected to bring in $200 million.

    Lady Gaga is on the track to becoming one of the year's top grossing touring artists.

    Her "Monster Ball" tour is expected to bring in an estimated $200 million by its scheduled wrap up in April 2011, MTV News reported.

    "As an artist with that kind of talent and vision emerges, it creates a lot of excitement, and ticket sales worldwide demonstrate that people are really excited to see the show," Arthur Fogel, the global touring chairman of Live Nation said.

    Classified by Rolling Stone as "a mix of bizarre and heartfelt," Gaga's tour first kicked off in November 2009 in Montreal. The "Bad Romance" singer and her crew has traveled elsewhere in North America, Europe, Australia and Asia.

    Continuing at this rate, Gaga will soon be among some of the top grossing touring artists of all time.

    In 2009, according to Billboard, U2's "360" tour was top grossing, bringing in more than $310 million, and Madonna's "Sweet and Sticky" tour followed behind, raking in more than $220 million. Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band came in third with more than $156 million in revenue from their tour.
