U2'S "360" tour became the highest-grossing tour in HISTORY last night.  (U2 was playing their second show in Sao Paulo, Brazil.)

The tour surpassed the $558 million that the ROLLING STONES generated during their "A Bigger Bang" tour from 2005 to 2007.

But U2 isn't stopping there.  By the time their 360 tour finishes its next North American leg on July 30th, it's expected to be at the $700 million mark.

The 360 tour will also become the "highest attended" tour ever... selling more than 7 million tickets to 110 shows.  That record was previously held by the Stones, too.  Their Voodoo Lounge tour sold 6.4 million tickets in 1994-1995.
