Coldplay Gross Nearly $100 Million On 2012 Tour, Top Billboard List
Coldplay have sold out arenas and stadiums across Europe and North America since mid-April. To date, they have more than 1.2 million tickets, and they are not done yet. The band are in Europe through the end of September and will play Australia and New Zealand in November.
A three-night stand in June at Emirates Stadium in North London brought in $14.4 million of that haul, with 173,596 people in attendance. Of other acts on tour in 2012, only four other acts -- Roger Waters, the Stone Roses, Lady Gaga and Bruce Springsteen -- have also made more than $10 million with multiple shows at one venue.
In America, the band played 25 shows in 15 cities to more than 413,000 fans between late June and early August. It was Coldplay's second North American stint of this year, with 11 concerts performed between April 17 and May 4.
