5 Highest Grossing Concert Tours

Here are the top five touring acts of 2010. While they are all big names, you may be a bit surprised at some of the names on it.

5. The Black Eyed Peas- $81.6 million
It seems that everything that the Black Eyed Peas touches in recent years has turned to gold. Or Platinum, whatever. The Black Eyed Peas World Tour in 2010 sold out all 82 dates that they had. And everyone had a “Goodnight” (oooh hooo).

4. Lady Gaga- $116.2 million concert tour
It can be argued that Lady Gaga is the biggest star in the muscle universe today. Her 2010 Fame Monster World Tour (which is actually still going on as we speak) sold out 101 of 122 shows last year. Of course, a lot of the $116 million that she received when back into production costs (Gaga is never understated), she’s still doing pretty good for herself.

3. AC/DC- $122.6 million on their concert tour
One of the most iconic hard rock bands of the last half centuries, AC/DC‘s 2010 stadium dates found the band playing to over 1.15 million people in 28 shows. With a number “Black Ice” hitting number one recently, it can be argued that AC/DC is as popular, if not popular, then it as ever been.

2. U2- $131.5 million on their concert tour
To be honest, the only reason why U2 isn’t number one on this list is because they had to cancel a full North American tour thanks to Bono’s back issues. In fact, U2 was able to make all their money with only 22 dates (and 22 sell outs). Expect the band to take up the top spot in 2011 with their rescheduled North American tour.

1. Bon Jovi- $146.5 million on their concert tour
While they may not be the flashiest or the most beloved band in rock, Bon Jovi is quite possibly the most consistent. Regardless of whether they release a new album or not, they hit the road almost every year. And their fans keeping buying tickets, with 69 sell outs in 69 dates. Though the band is going to take the next couple of years off, they will hit the road again.
