Who Are Pollstar’s ‘Top Touring Artists Of The Decade’?

November 26, 2019

Before you scroll down – take a guess at which band topped Pollstar’s list of the 20 highest grossing acts of the last decade.

OK OK, the giant picture of U2 probably gave it away.

Are you surprised to see them top the list? I would’ve put Metallica, AC/DC, Guns N’ Roses and more ahead of them. But, that’s not the case. In fact, AC/DC didn’t even make Top 20. The list is below.

01. U2 ($1.038 billion)
02. The Rolling Stones ($929 million)
03. Ed Sheeran ($922 million)
04. Taylor Swift ($900 million)
05. Beyonce ($857 million) 
06. Bon Jovi ($837 million) 
07. Paul McCartney ($814 million) 
08. Coldplay ($732 million) 
09. Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band ($730 million) 
10. Roger Waters ($702 million) 
11. Elton John ($676 million) 
12. Metallica ($662 million) 
13. Guns N’ Roses ($648 million) 
14. The Eagles ($630 million) 
15. One Direction ($628 million) 
16. Pink ($626 million) 
17. Jay-Z ($612 million)

Are you at all surprised with this list? I wouldn’t have guessed U2 was the highest grossing band of the last decade.
