U2’s 360° Tour Highest Grossing Tour of All Time

U2’s 360 Degree tour has been named the most successful of all time.

Live Nation Entertainment says the tour has raked in more than $554 million, breaking the record set by the Rolling Stones’ Bigger Bang Tour from 2005 to 2007.

U2’s manager Paul McGuinness said the team is proud of the tour. “That dollar figure for the gross looks enormous! Of course I can’t tell you what the net is, but I can tell you that the band spend enormous sums on production for their audience,” he said.

U2 still has 26 shows left before the tour ends in Canada on July 30th. By that time, Live Nation predicts the tour will have grossed more than $700 million.

The band has played to 5 million people across Europe, Russia, North America, South America, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand, according to Live Nation. By the tour’s end, more than 7 million people will have seen it.
