Who Had the Top Grossing Worldwide Concert Tour in 2010?

Bon Jovi had the top grossing worldwide concert tour in 2010, beating out other famous acts like U2, Lady Gaga and Elton John. The tour grossed more than $200 million US Dollars (USD), which is more than the combined total for the tours of The Black Eyed Peas, John Mayer and Coldplay.

More facts about concerts in 2010:

  • The top-grossing single concert in 2010 was the The X Factor Live O2 in Dublin, Ireland, with almost $2 million USD in ticket sales, followed closely by Bon Jovi and Dashboard Confessional in the Philips Arena in Atlanta, Georgia, which made just a bit less.

  • Concert sales in general were down in 2010 — there was about a 12 percent decline in concert attendance, and concert grosses in general dropped by about 25 percent.

  • Out of those with the top six grossing concert tours, only two acts gained popularity less than 10 years ago — Lady Gaga and Michael Buble. AC/DC, U2 and Metallica also joined Bon Jovi in the top six.
