I Wish I Were This Irrelevant

Quite often I hear the classic rock bands labeled "irrelevant." Hmmm, the Rolling Stones were the most successful live band over the past 10 years taking in over $869 million, according to Billboard’s Top Touring Acts of the 2000s list.

Other things that stood out for me...

U2 had 288 shows in the decade and sold out all of them.

Rod Stewart has been labeled a "sell-out" by some, but I'm sure he's laughing all the way to the bank with the $233 million he earned through his concerts.

Meanwhile, Britney Spears may sing about being a slave for you, however, I guess it's too bad slavery isn't actually so lucrative. She took in over $216 million through touring!

The full list is here.
