U2's 360 Degree tour highest grossing ever
U2's 360 Degree global tour is now the highest grossing tour ever, overtaking the Rolling Stones, whose 2005-2007 Bigger Bang tour previously held the record. Ticket sales at U2's show in Sao Paulo this weekend took revenues above the $558 million the Stones tour made over its three years, even despite the postponements caused by Bono's bad back last year. According to reports, by the time U2 complete the forthcoming North American leg of their 360 Degree tour the gross will be over $700 million.
