U2 Rakes in half a billion dollars

Do you have to ask who one of the Top Touring Artist of the Decade? U2 walks away from the Billboard magazine list recapping their chart tracking for both 2009 and the entire decade. Coming in at #2 with nearly a billion dollars in gross revenue from touring - ($844,157,925) The Stones take top honors by only 25M.
