Bon Jovi not only has the year's top tour, but the rock band has achieved a career high.
The New Jersey-based act's worldwide tour grossed US$259.5 million this year, topping Pollstar's annual top 20 list and setting a record for the band itself.
Beyonce is second with US$188.6 million. She ended her tour last week in Brooklyn, New York. Pink, Justin Bieber, and Bruce Springsteen round out the top five.
The global concert business scored a record year with the top 20 tours, earning US$2.43 billion in primary ticket sales. It generated US$1.96 billion last year.
The top 20 list also included Taylor Swift, Elton John, Rihanna, Depeche Mode and One Direction. The Rolling Stones' comeback tour ranked twelfth, a notch under Paul McCartney.
