To paraphrase one of the band's early in-concert favorites: How long, how long, how long will U2 be together? As long as it has years like 2011, when the venerable Irish quartet grossed $293 million for its 360 Tour, playing for an estimated 2.8 million people and easily topping the year's highest-grossing tours list. U2 took in more than $100 million more than the second-place finisher, Bon Jovi, who played for a paltry 1.8 million fans. Check out the rest of the list below. [The Hollywood Reporter]
