IRISH band U2's current 360 world tour is the most successful ever, beating the record set by The Rolling Stones four years ago, said promoters Live Nation Entertainment on Monday. The Irish supergroup, who played Brazil over the weekend, will gross ticket sales of more than US$700 million (S$880 million) when their tour finally wraps up in Canada in July, Live Nation said.
