The Stones, Green Day, Gn’R, Slipknot Make Pollstar’s Highest Grossing Bands Of 2021 List

December 18, 2021

Would you have guess that The Rolling Stones were the highest-grossing tour of 2021? Pollstar does a list every year about the worldwide concert industry and The Stones’ “No Filter” tour was #1 with $115.5 million from just 12 concerts. Twelve. No shit.

The pandemic brought the touring industry to its knees in early 2020.

When you think about it, it’s amazing that any band made a substantial income last year.

Here’s some other rock bands on Pollstar’s “2021 Year-End Top 100 Worldwide Tours” list:

01. THE ROLLING STONES ($115.5 million)
03. GREEN DAY, WEEZER, FALL OUT BOY ($67.3 million)
