We guess they've still got it!!

U2 latest tour, 360 Degrees, is at the top of Billboard's 2010 Money Makers list, pulling in $108 million in 2009!!!

HOLY SHIZ!!

Bruce Springsteen is a faraway second with $57 million, while Madonna is third at $47 million.

The list is reportedly compiled by $$$ earned through tours, CD and digital sales, and publishing royalties!!

Not bad, Bono!!

    and yet hes still annoying as fuck and an ego-maniac…
    p.s follow me on t i t t e r my names FUTURESTARdelux thanks ^_^



  2. 2

    Bono give me some $$ man!! Your Ego is too too much, douche



  3. 3

    this guy bono is such a cheap chisler. i am so sick of his phoney two face ways.no wonder he made so much money, he's a typical asshole.. a real prick.



  4. 4

    Well that is GREAT!!!! I am certain given that this band is always looking for people to give to their causes it is nice to hear that their album made that much so at lease half, 54 million dollars will be going to the causes that U2 is always shoving down everyone elses throats…



  5. 5

    Yeah and how much did Bono the douche and company spend on production costs? And if he made so much money how much of it is he donating to all the various causes he is paid to endorse? Plus U2 sucks runny yellow shit

    U2 charges over $200 for some of their seats.
    All Bruce seats are under $100.

    Hey this list much be wrong. I mean after all Perez has no shut his C Sucker for the past year about CACA taking the world by storm, but yet I do not see her anywhere on this list.

    What happened?

    :)



  8. 8

    Nice - and even nicer for them that they don't have to pay income tax on that…….



  9. 9

    Over a hundred million raked in but they still don't pay taxes to their poor recession-hit motherland!!! bullshit!



  10. 10

    britney is #5!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)



  11. 11

    The top 40 list was kinda surprising for me, I was expecting Michael Jackson to be a higher earner than #20, and It kinda sad that the Jonas Brothers, and Taylor Swift were so high up on the list.



  12. 12

    Re: welshboi :P

    haha yea bono=world's biggest turd.



  13. 13

    There's nobody in America that still buys there crap right?



  14. 14

    UR AN IDIOT PEREZ. GROSS REVENUE AND NET REVENUE AR 2 DIFFERENT THINGS. THOSE ARE GROSS FIGURES. ACCORDING TO OTHER REPORTS, BONO'S TOUR IS VERY EXPENSIVE WITH ALL THE SPECIAL EFFECTS AND STAGE CONTRAPTIONS AND THE NET REVENUE IS VERY LOW LIKE 10-15% IF THAT. I RECALL ONE BAND MEMBER SAYING AFTER X NUMBER OF CONCERTS HE WAS LUCKY TO CLEAR 30K. THE TRUTH.



  15. 15

    So much for it being an expensive set that left little profits - imagine what they would have made with a regular stage?

    Time to give it all away now Bono - practice what you preach!! Not likely!!



  16. 16

    net vs. gross - who cares - ask Bono why the group felt compelled to lay off their very small NY staff a few years back - those girls worked for them for years and committed their lives and careers to this group of men who raked in the cash but felt compelled to lay off their low paid staff - world debt relief starts at home - ALL of your various homes U2, in various cities…



  17. 17

    Pay your taxes Bono - always rabbiting on about how the Irish are a tribe but you pay sweet FA in tax to help out your fellow tribesmen. All that money in your arse pocket while you tell everyone else to shell out.

    Also, your reading of poetry in the Charles Bukowski doc was LAME!



  18. 18

    Good for them they know that touring is where the money is since music doesn't seell anyomore artist don't make shit from music. Madonna is sure making more money then ever :O and she deserves it.



  19. 19

    Where is Cowriah Carey on the list? LOL

    madonna rocks

    long live the queen



  21. 21

    all of you, go to fucking hell.
    bono is probably the most generous man there is at the moment.
    REALLY. F OFF.
    THEY SPENT MOST OF THEIR MONEY ON THEIR TOUR FOR THE FANS
    BY USING IT FOR THE STAGE.
    SO STUFF IT UP YOUR ASS.



  22. 22

    he sold his soul to satan…sounds like a bad deal to me. live it up BONO. you know the saying…you can't take it with you. ahahahahahhahahhahahahahah fool!!!!!burn in hell you charity show boater.



  23. 23

    why cant he be the "celebrity" who died from a drug overdose? instead of MJ or The Rev? its fucking annoying!!!!!



  24. 24

    theyve still got talent!



  25. 25

    U2, Springsteen, Madonna: Only legends on the list!



  26. 26

    Re: Madonna_#1fan_4ever!
    No need to mention Mariah, stop that stupid comparison.



  27. 27

    man ritchi dona no right b in tht list as lipsyc singer mimng



  28. 28

    Take what you will…U2 has never called off a concert…They put their heart into each and every show….They may not have Top 40 but they have soul…..I have a sneaky feeling that these men do not take their laurels and everyone can assume they are money grubbing old farts that dont pay taxes/hypocrites for not taking a monk lifestyle…… These are 4 guys that make music…everyone is entitled to their own opinion…but the bottom line celebrity is all about megolamania …Bono even him dubbed himself that he is all about himself…the pomp and circumstance so be it,,,, no one is questioning britneys lip synching ways…at least they play instruments and sing….



  29. 29

    Re: rgzrgz – No, there are more legends on that list. michael jackson and paul mccartney for example.

    Wonder how many of that will be donated to charities

  31. albes says – reply to this


    31

    Perez, you forgot to say that britney is #5 with 38 million. She is the #1 under 30 years old. Your llove GAGA is not even in the list.



  32. 32

    ilove madonna



  33. 33

    WELL DESERVED…THEY PUT ON AN AWESOME SHOW.



  34. 34

    Re: Madonna_#1fan_4ever! – aidsiah cancerey is shit , she wasn t included because she cant produce money to music industry , she cant sell TOURS and cds , she is face of nothing , 4 sure she is so ugly , SHE IS THE QUEEN OF FLOPS , IM SO HAPPY 4 THAT



  35. 35

    MADONNA STILL BEEN THE MOST POWERFUL FEMALE ARTIST ALL TIME



  36. 36

    U2 sucked since the Joshua Tree … I just don't get it.



  37. 37

    Re: Madonna_#1fan_4ever!
    I sure whatever Mariah Carey made last year is still more than your candy-ass will see in a lifetime.



  38. 38

    and he still didn't pay any taxes to help the poor in Ireland!!!



  39. 39

    LOL. What is HILARIOUS is that Lady GarGoyle isn't even in the top 40. Constant touring and all her sales combined, the OVERHYPED tranny hooker made less than $2m last year. PATHETIC.



  40. 40

    Lady GarGoyle FLOPPED. Her tour was a DISASTER and obviously she HAS NOT sold as many albums as P-FIZZLE claims. The trashy tranny hooker didn't make shit this year. And it will only get worse from here on out.



  41. 41

    C'mon Perez, say it…Who was at # 4? Yup, AC/DC…and you thought they should retire. They have been breaking records at selling out stadiums. They sold out a 60 000 seat stadium in Oz in 3 minutes. Why stop at them, they are in front of Britney after all… btw, where is Sliimy on the list?



  42. 42

    lady CACA IS NOT EVEN ON THE LIST. AHAHHA. YEAH MADONNA AT #3 the lastest 2 years she was #1 thats good. she did not make a tour in 2009 and she is at #3 really good and her last tour was the most viewed tour and the money maker tour ever in 2008. amazing THATS THE QUEEN OF MUSIC



  43. 43

    ive been a fan of this band since i was 12 im 40 now…these guys paid their dues…not only that the reason they keep being a huge success is because they give tons of different charites…god will keep blessing those that keep passing on their own blessing to others…(those that do not lose it just look at tiger he wouldnt even leave tips loser!!) u2 continually delivers not only on record but on stage that is a show u must not miss in this life time i had the chance to see them as they came up and when they where well established and they have not gotten lazy on stage or on record they dont put out records just to put them out and make money…how to dismantle an atomic bomb was an awesome record the lyrics on those songs got me through the loss of my mother….i was devastated life for me had stopped but the songs on that record pulled me through…and it wasnt the only record unfogettable fire got me through my teen years…just awesome music no one has lasted as long as these guys and been consistently good, awesome and brilliant

    U2 Lyrics - One Step Closer
    I'm ’round the corner from anything that's real I'm across the road from hope
    I'm under a bridge in a rip tide That's taken everything I call my own
    One step closer to knowing One step closer to knowing
    I'm on an island at a busy intersection I can't go forward, Now I can't turn back Can't see the future It's getting away from me
    I just watch the tail lights glowing One step closer to knowing
    One step closer to knowing One step closer to knowing Knowing, knowing
    I'm hanging out to dry with my old clothes, Finger still red with the prick of an old rose Well the heart that hurts Is a heart that beats
    Can you hear the drummer slowing? One step closer to knowing
    One step closer to knowing One step closer to knowing
    To knowing, to knowing, to knowing
    From the record-How to dismantle an atomic bomb



  45. 45

    U2-BAD
    If you twist and turn away If you tear yourself in two again If I could, yes I would If I could, I would Let it go Surrender Dislocate If I could throw this
    Lifeless lifeline to the wind Leave this heart of clay See you walk, walk away
    Into the night And through the rain Into the half-light And through the flame
    If I could through myself Set your spirit free I'd lead your heart away
    See you break, break away Into the light And to the day
    Oooh oooh, oooh oooh, oooh oooh oooh…To let it go! And so fade away
    To let it go! And so fade away I'm wide awake I'm wide awake
    Wide awake I'm not sleeping, oh no, no, no If you should ask then maybe they'd Tell you what I would say True colors fly in blue and black
    Blue silken sky and burning flag Colors crash, collide in blood shot eyes
    Oooh oooh, oooh oooh, oooh oooh oooh… If I could, you know I would
    If I could, I would Let it go This desperation Dislocation Separation
    Condemnation Revelation In temptation Isolation Desolation Let it go
    And so fade away To let it go, oh yeah And so fade away To let it go, oh No
    And so fade away I'm wide awake I'm wide awake Wide awake
    I'm not sleeping oh no no
    From the record-The Unforgettable Fire

    lol funny comment



  47. 47

    At least U2 gives a lot of their money to charity. Mandonna's money goes straight to her pockets so she can buy more adult diapers, Werthers and Hoverounds.



  48. 48

    A real band and one of, if not the best band in the world. 30 years of work. Puts flash in the pans like Gaga in their correct place…no where near a real band like U2. For all of the dumb crap that people get suckered in to listening to today like gaga, justin beiber etc etc it's great that a real band destroys them all. Maybe there are more people in the world with some sense than it seems sometimes.



  49. 49

    Slef proclaimed Queen Beyowhore wasn't even mentioned there!! hahaha.

    Way over rated 3 note play-it-loud-all-the-time undynamic screamers. Imo.



  51. 51

    Madonna pulled in $242 last year, TWICE THAT, so this is nothing compared to that.
