It was recently revealed that The Rolling Stones have grossed over £225 million from live shows since 2012. The legendary band resumed touring in 2012 following a five-year hiatus, playing 30 shows across Europe and North America on their ’50 & Counting’ tour, including a well-received headline set at Glastonbury Festival in 2013. The band then hit the road again last year (2014) for the ’14 On Fire’ tour, which took in 29 dates across Asia, Europe, Australia and New Zealand.
Last month (May) they kicked off the ‘Zip Code’ tour of North America, which will feature 15 shows stretching into mid-July. According to Billboard, collected ticket revenue from these three tours now totals a massive $360 million, or roughly £228 million.
