The Rolling Stones amassed over $100m in revenue during their summer US tour, reports Billboard.

The tour concluded earlier this month after a run of 14 concerts and 628,733 tickets sold, enough to add $109.7m precisely to the band’s already swollen coffers.

The Stones have been touring consistently since the end of 2012 when they returned to celebrate their 50th anniversary, and are now also ready to record a first album since 2005.

“I know Mick wants to record again because he blurted it out in a meeting: ‘It’s about time we went back and recorded,’” guitarist Keith Richards told Mojo. “I was like, ‘We’re here to talk about a tour, right?’ So that will be interesting. End of the year.”

Richards himself has a new album coming out in September; ‘Crosseyed Heart‘, the follow-up to 1992’s ‘Main Offender‘, is due for release on September 18th.
