The Rolling Stones have done it yet again with their latest tour becoming one of the highest-grossing tours of all time.

Per Billboard Boxscore, the Stones’ “No Filter” tour, which just wrapped on August 30 and spanned three years, grossed a total of $415.6 million and sold 2,290,871 tickets. These figures are enough for the “No Filter” tour to be ranked the eighth highest-grossing tour of all time.

This is also the second top-ten entry from the Stones on this list, with their 2005-2007 “A Bigger Bang” tour earning $558 million and ranking third all-time. The current highest-grossing tour of all time is Ed Sheeran‘s “The Divide Tour,” which began in 2017, ended in 2019 and grossed a staggering $776 million.
