Rolling Stones Top U2 For Biggest Tour Of All Time
U2 topped the Stones and now the Stones have turned around and topped U2 to reclaim the title of the top-grossing tour of all-time. U2's current Vertigo tour is at $377 million from 121 shows. But now the Stones' A Bigger Bang tour is at $437 million from 110 shows, with 3.5 million paying customers. (That doesn't include the 1 million to 2 million people who attended their free concert in Rio this February.) With plans to keep the tour going in 2007, the Stones could easily top $500 million before all is said and done.
