If you went to a concert last year, there's a good chance it was to see one of these artists. According to the concert website pollstar, these were the top grossing tours of 2017.
  1. U2 - $316 million
  2. Guns N' Roses - $292.5 million
  3. Coldplay - $238 million
  4. Bruno Mars - $200.1 million
  5. Metallica - $152.8 million
  6. Depeche Mode - $141.1 million
  7. Paul McCartney - $132 million
  8. Ed Sheeran - $124.1 million
  9. Rolling Stones - $120 million
  10. Garth Brooks - $101.4 million
Since the list is determined by total amount of money made, the cost of the ticket has a big impact. For example, U2 sold 2.71 million tickets compared to Guns n' Roses' 2.68 million. However, since U2 charged more than $40 more per ticket, that is what is responsible for the gap in the gross.
