Who knew there were awards for best tour?? Well, guess what there are!

A a big CONGRATS goes to Taylor Swift, U2, Perry Farrell, and Kenny Chesney, who were among the night's biggest winners at the 8th annual Billboard Touring Awards in New York.

U2 took home the "Legend of Live" award, honoring their 38 years of touring. Um, excuse us, 38 years?!? Holy shiz!!

They were also awards with the Top Tour and Top Draw awards, which acknowledged the band's top grossing and ticket selling tours for their 360° Tour.

Swifty received the Concert Marketing & Promotion award for her 2011 Speak Now tou, while Farrell received the inaugural Apple Award.

We think Taylor needs an award just for all those amazing covers she did every night!

    in 1989 i attended a u2 concert for FREE thats right i walked all around the brisbane entertainment centre with this guy i met few days before and we found one door tucked at the back that didnt have a security guard and was unlocked and we walked right in

    problem was all the seats were allocated and when we made our way to the front and were jumping up and down well front of the back section i might add two nerds kept telling us to sit down AND WHINING that they paid for the seats blah blah… so we ended up leaving but i saw some of it and it was AMAZING!!! free free free in those days i was flat broke!!

    why is america obsessed with this dull alien faced bitch? Her music is just so insipid and she cant sing for toffee! Thankfully the rest of the world ignores her.
