The Rolling Stones Now Hold Top Grossing Tour in History

Published: 2007-10-05
English band The Rolling Stones finished their A Bigger Bang world tour at the end of this past August and the final tally surpassed half a billion dollars, making it the most successful (profit-wise) tour in history.

The rockers began their tour in autumn of 2005 and completed it on the 26th of August of this year in London, England. The total box office sales for all the shows in that span of time came up to $558,255,524, according to Billboard.com, which surpasses the previous top grossing tour, which was Vertigo by U2.

The A Bigger Bang tour was made up of a total of 144 performances by The Rolling Stones, and had combined paid attendance of 4,680,000 fans.
The legendary foursome were touring in support of their last album of new material, 2005's A Bigger Bang, their 22nd studio record.

This isn't one bit surprising considering the "BOYS" have been cranking it up for over 45 years now.Doubt you'll ever see a better band last as long.
