U2 were today named the highest-earning band on the planet over the last year.
The Irish legends, who have been staging their groundbreaking 360 tour under a giant “claw”, have been rocking all the way to the bank.
They were estimated to have raked in $130 million (€101m), according to Forbes.com, including ticket and merchandise sales and a steady-selling back catalogue.
Despite their huge success, Bono’s bad back has disrupted some of the band’s concert plans, including being forced to pull out of playing Glastonbury Festival.
