U2 kicked off their ongoing 360° worldwide concert Tour in support of their album ‘No Line on the Horizon’ in June 2009. The Tour has been named after the 360-degree staging system and audience configuration, the band uses for all its shows.
U2 360° became the highest-grossing concert Tour ever in April 2011, when it grossed more than $700 million in ticket sales. The Tour has won U2 the Billboard Touring Award for the highest-grossing tour in 2009.
The U2 360°, as of June 2011, holds the record for the highest-attended tour of all time with more than 7 million tickets sold and beating The Rolling Stones’ earlier record of 6.3 million tickets sell for the Mick Jagger led band’s Voodoo Lounge tour.
The tour will end on July 30, 2011.
