U2 picks up two Billboard Touring Awards
November 10, 2011
U2 was a double-winner at the Billboard Touring Awards tonight in New York City. The U2 360 tour won the Top Tour and Top Draw awards. The first is for the highest-grossing tour of the year; the second is for the most tickets sold. As far as we know, no band members were on hand.
The U2 360 tour ran for more than two years (June 2009 through July 2011) and saw the band perform 100 concerts. The tour sold 7.1 million tickets and became the highest-grossing tour in history at $736 million.
