The Rolling Stones enjoyed the biggest grossing run of concerts this year, reports Billboard.
According to their figures, the Stones racked up box office figures of $27,946,751 for the three shows they played at the Tokyo Dome on February 26th, March 4th and March 6th, when tickets ranged from $97.70-$781.63. Since the survey includes data from November-October, Sir Paul McCartney‘s gigs at the same venue in November 2013 put him in second place with takings of $23,493,800 for a similar three-date run.
Overall, boyband One Direction were the most lucrative live draw of the year, ahead of Justin Timberlake, again The Rolling Stones, The Eagles and Katy Perry.
