Billboard, for no particular reason, has published a list of the Top 10 Tours of All-Time.

#1 is Elton John’s “Farewell Yellow Brick Road” trek has garnered more than $800-million.

Here’s an overview of the list…

#9 – “AC/DC: Black Ice World Tour” (’08-10) with a paltry $442-million.

#6 – The Rolling Stones “No Filter Tour” (’17-’19, ’21).  Taking $547-million in revenues Mick and his fellow mates can expect a comfortable retirement as long a Ron Wood doesn’t take any more Russian brides.

#5 – The Rolling Stones “Bigger Bang” trek (’05- ’07). This one earned $558-million.

#4 – What would any touring list be without Guns N’ Roses? The “Not In This Life” trek took in $584 million.

#3 – No surprise, U2’s “360⁰ World Tour” (’09-’11) earned $736-million.

Between U2 (pictured above) and Elton John was Ed Sheeran.

Popsters Coldplay (#7) and Harry Styles (#10) did well.  And so did Roger Waters with “The Wall Live” (#8), while offstage doing his best to offend everybody.
