Thanks for all these stats - v.impressive but why only 1 night at Madison Square Garden?

BTW : this is what today's UK Sunday Times (with Bono interview) says about the tour :

"U2 is now the world's biggest-selling rock band, currently on a tour in the *US that is expected to reap $300 (£165M), well ahead of reciepts predicted for the Rolling Stones...."

*they must mean tour of the world here, not just US.

Jeez...amazing! - so that's more than Elevation Tour ($109M) & more than Bruce Springsteen ($115M).

So is this now, again, the 2nd highest grossing tour in US in one year ever? Or even THE highest?

Also, are all the tickets already sold for 3rd leg?

thanks for the new info

In fact, the 2nd highest grossing tour (one-year calendar) was Elevation Tour and the 1st was Voodoo Lounge with 120 million $, or something.

So, Vertigo Tour will be the highest grossing tour with aprox 135 million$

Elevation was the 2nd highest back in 2001. Tours by Paul McCartney, Madonna, Bruce Springsteen and I think the Rolling Stones from 2002-2003, all Grossed around $115 million to $130 million in North America. But, Vertigo tour is now projected to Gross 135 million and will likely hit 140 million for North America once a few more shows are added to the third leg. That will make the Vertigo tour the highest Grossing tour ever in North America in nominal terms. But adjusting for inflation, the Rolling Stones Voodoo Lounge tour from 1994 which Grossed 121 million that year in todays dollars would be 154.5 million. So adjusted for inflation that will likely still be the top tour, with Vertigo as the second biggest.

Worldwide, U2 will Gross $300 million dollars this year, with dates in Australia, New Zealand and Japan plus other possible shows in 2006, yet to be added to that figure.

Why do Glendale and LA both have close to the same attendance(34,000) but a $500,000 difference in gross?

The average ticket price in LA is $106 and Phoenix it's $91.

Is the arena rent in LA and NYC that much more expensive?

Thanx, STING2 - good info...

...however, I've done a bit more research and this is what I've got for the top 10 grossing concerts in N.America to date :

1. U2 - Vertigo Tour (2005) : $135-140M
2. The Stones - Voodoo Lounge Tour (1994) : $121.2M ($154M adjusted for inflation)
3. Madonna - Re-Invention Tour (2002-03) : $124.5M (I think) - 56 concerts drew in more than $2M per night (up to $300M per seat)
4. Bruce Springsteen - Rising Tour (2002-03) : $115.9
5. U2 - Elevation Tour (2001) : $109.7M
6. Pink Floyd - Division Bell Tour (1994) : $103.5M ($132m adjusted for inflation)
7. Paul Mcartney - Driving USA Tour (2002) : $103M
8. The Stones - Steel Weels Tour (1989) : $98M ($140M? adjusted for inflation)
9. The Stones - Bridges To Babylon Tour (1997) : $89.3M ($105M? adjusted for inflation)
10. Prince - Musicology Tour (2004) : $90.3M

So, The Stones are the outwrite winners overall with 3 entries in the top 10 & possibly the top 2 tours (Voodoo Lounge - $154M & Steel Weels - $140M) of all-time, with adjustment for inflation. But interesting (& surprising) that their Licks Tour now doesn't even make the cut (it 'only' grossed $87.9M). Also, I guess the Pink Floyd Division Bell Tour would now be at # 4 with inflation adjustment ($132M).

This time next year I would put the Vertigo Tour at # 2 or # 3, between those 2 Stones tours (with inflation adjustment) - not bad going.

ps - I wonder where those massive Led Zep tours of the 70's would now rank with inflation adjustment?

...you could be right, but they'll have to gross more than $140M &, as I've just posted, the Licks tour 'only' did $87.9M - so :

a) do they really give a sh*t? I doubt it.
b) do they really have it in them? I doubt it
c) I mean, aren't they just too old? err..Yes

It`s a simple equation:The stones are going to do this year aprox. 40 shows ( at this momennt they have confirmed 37 of which 16 are stadiums and 21 arenas). In the arenas the comparation with u2 is:
100 level seats U2 160$ stones 350$ or 400 $
200 level seats U2 95 $ stones 160$
Stones promoter is saying basically every show is sold out oe near sold out so the numbers says that in arena show the ticket average for the stones will be well over 230$.
