Lists: Top Grossing Tours, U.S., Annually 1994-2004

Rolling Stones, 2005


I was curious to see a list of the top concert tours, year by year, over the last few years. Remarkably, there is no definitive list like that anywhere on the internet; I searched for 3 days. So: I put one together myself. The information comes from Pollstar, but was cobbled together from over a dozen articles and websites. As far as I know, this is the only page on the web with all of these on the same page. At some point, I'll try to find stats for pre-1995 tours (thusfar, I haven't found any beyond the top two in 1994).
