U2 are set to release a new book which will document the events of their record-breaking '360' world tour.

The tour, which began in Barcelona on June 30, 2009 and ended at Moncton's Magnetic Hill Music Festival in Canada on July 30, grossed a staggering $736,137,344 (£448 million) during its run. This smashed The Rolling Stones' previous record for the highest grossing tour, which had stood at $558 million.

The book, which will be titled U2360: The Official Story of the Greatest Spectacle in Stadium-Rock History, is to be written by GQ magazine editor Dylan Jones, who was given full access to the entire tour.

Jones met the band at various locations, including backstage at their headline slot at this year's Glastonbury Festival. As well as Jones' documentation of events, the book will also include contributions from the band themselves, their manager Paul McGuiness and a selection of never before seen photographs.

The book will not be released for another year however, with publisher Random House stating that it will be in stores for October 2012.
