Metallica, Van Halen, Aerosmith, Scorpions Amongst Top 50 Grossing Tours Of 2012
Unsurprisingly dominated by pop megastars like Madonna – who came in first with a whopping $296 million made – and Lady Gaga, Metallica were the only heavy band to make the top 10, clocking in at number 8 with $86.1 million, while Van Halen and Aerosmith also made appearances at numbers 15 and 44 respectively.
Arguably, the most surprising rock ‘n’ roll inclusion is German stadium rockers Scorpions, who made the list above Aerosmith at a very respectable 38. Respect, lads. Respect. Although you still came under Westlife, which continues to prove that people are fucking stupid.
