COLDPLAY just finished their “A Head Full of Dreams Tour” in Buenos Aires last week, and to say it was a success would be an understatement.
Coldplay performed for 5.4 million people around the world over a year and a half, and grossed more than $523 million in ticket sales. That makes it the THIRD most-successful world tour of all time.
It still fell way short of U2’s “360 Tour”, which is the top tour of all time, with $736.4 million from 2009 to 2011.
The Rolling Stones are in second place thanks to their “A Bigger Bang Tour”, which made $558.2 million from 2005 to 2007.
Thanks to Coldplay, Roger Waters’ and his “The Wall Live” tour fell to fourth, with $459 million. That one ran from 2010 to 2013.
