Rolling Stones are top touring act of the 2000s


The Rolling Stones have been named the top touring act of the decade.

The group's 264 concerts over the past 10 years grossed almost $870 million -- enough to land the number one spot on Billboard's Top Touring Acts of the 2000s list.

Only three artists passed the $800 million mark for the decade -- the Stones, U2 and Madonna, who was both the top-grossing female and solo artist.

Of the 25 acts on Billboard's list, the Dave Matthews Band performed in front of the most fans, selling over 11 million tickets over the course of 547 shows.
