U2 smashes tour records
"It means that it%u2019s a record that will probably never be outstripped."

Big call, records were made to be broken.

The show was pretty amazing though and well worth those figures.

I wonder if it ever turned a profit.

The previous rumours were that it cost upwards of $650,000 a day to run the tour, even on nights when there was no concert.

Each of the three claw stages was rumoured to cost between $40 and $140 million.

They have THREE different stages? Fuck me.

I work next door to suncorp stadium so got to see the semi trailers coming and going all day for weeks, makes sense that they would need that many to be ready for shows around the place though.

What this means is that the Stones will produce one hell of a tour soon. They don't want Bono to steal their glory.

I've got money on Pink breaking that record by performing a 678 day tour in Australia in 2014/15

i just can't help but think a lot of that has to do with the brilliant support acts (jay z, muse, black eyed peas, interpol, snow patrol etc)

I don't know how many people would pay double the usual price for a support act to see them play in a stadium that no doubt has shit acoustics

hopefully bono will have more money to donate to charity so he doesn't keep crapping on about me parting with my hard earned and rather limited coin

Your spare change can make far more of an impact than Bono's millions ever could...

Snow Patrol were picked as a support so that U2 could be 100% certain they would be the most exciting band of the night.
