With the Mexico/South American dates on her Sticky & Sweet Tour wrapping up in three weeks, Madonna is on track to take in about $282 million from the jaunt, which would give her the crown for the top-grossing tour ever by a female artist or solo artist, Reuters reports.

The 28 dates on the North American leg of the tour -- grossed around $91.5 million, with the concert being seen by almost 550,000. That leg of the tour wrapped up last Wednesday with a show in front of 50,000 fans at Dolphin Stadium in Miami.

Before the South American dates, Madonna had already grossed around $207.5 million between the North American and European shows on the tour, according to Reuters. The run wraps up with a three-night stand in Sao Paulo, Brazil, beginning December 18.

Despite her massive expected take, Madonna still has a long way to go before she catches up to the undisputed top touring act of all time, the Rolling Stones, whose A Bigger Bang tour from 2005-2007 grossed more than $558 million.
