“Bridges to Babylon” Spans River of Money

Superlatives fail describe the indomitable Rolling
Stones. The band fortifies its legend yearly, as is
evident in Pollstar’s latest tally, which crowns
them as the top U.S. Concert draw of 1997. Mick and the boys
rolled across the country with the “Bridges to Babylon” tour,
selling 1.5 million tickets and racking up more than $89.3 in
total. U2 came in second with $79.1million,
followed by Fleetwood Mac with $36.3 million.

1997 was the second-best year ever for ticket sales. Consumers
dropped $1.3 billion on concerts in 1997, which indicates an
industry up-swing.
