The official, fully endorsed, inside story of the biggest rock tour of all time: U2's 360º.

The stats are truly epic: $700m in receipts; three sets costing $10m each of which take 150 trucks to transport; an audience of 7 million people -- a single performance in Pasadena, California, setting the world record for a single rock concert at 97,014 attendees.

With exclusive contributions from the band, manager Paul McGuiness, world renowned set designer Willie Williams (who also designs sets for George Michael, Lady Gaga, Madonna, Rolling Stones and many more) and exclusive photographs from tour photographer Ralf Larmann. The book will be written by Dylan Jones who has been given complete access, including behind the scenes at Glastonbury 2011.

Probably becuase the photographer is German.
He took several awesome shots of the claw, and i heard that he was the one who came up with the idea of the spidercam.

Remember this shot?

The list you posted includes festivals and open air spaces. And some stadiums that are not active as concert venues anymore.
I have no idea what kind of record they where talking about though.
Its a vague description, and there have been bigger concerts for sure.
