U2 not in the top 20 of the most listened to acts of 2017. Thought they would at least be in the top 20

I totally agree. It's odd the weakness of their streaming especially when they have such a large catalog to stream. Also, they were not in the top 50 highest money making music acts of 2016. And the list only accounted for sales, streaming, downloads and touring. Beat out by people like J. Lo and Pentatonix I know they didn't tour at all. So i guess it does make some sense. But still. Shows the lack of money from album sales and streams

strange.

Odd that they're not on the list, but at least they're projected to have the highest grossing tour of 2017.

What is the measurement period for this list? Or is this cumulative since Spotify started?

That is weird.

Doubt they're too concerned about it while on this huge tour.

Depressing list really, apart from a few classic bands.

Exactly. I couldn't care less about who didn't make the list, I'm more concerned about Paramore, Fall Out Boy, Blink 182, and Panic making the list.

I don't even know what spotify is and wonder if U2 fans, and casual listening U2 fans who are primarily between age 40 and 55 would be using something like spotify. If spotify is mainly a millennial or younger generation z tool for listening to music, then that may explain why they are not in the top 20.

I've heard of it, but can't get it to play on my rotary phone.
