Rockers Bon Jovi have grossed $146.5 million (£97.6 million) from their North American shows in the past 12 months, making them the highest music tour earners of 2010.
The Livin' on a Prayer hitmakers delighted fans across the U.S. and Canada with The Circle trek earlier this year (10) and subsequently played 69 shows to pull in the massive amount, according to the annual Billboard Boxscore poll.
The stars also topped the tour total rundown in 2008 - and frontman Jon Bon Jovi is delighted with the band's achievement.
He says, "In the industry it means something... all your peers are going to look at it. They're going to see some kind of year-end charts for everything: albums, singles, touring... You can't think about it. In order to break records you have to just do it to satisfy the need."
Irish rockers U2 came in second place with $131.5 million (£87.6 million) from their 360 Degrees tour, which is running into 2011.
AC DC, Lady Gaga and the Black Eyed Peas make up the rest of the top five.
