The Rolling Stones top Pollstar 2021 worldwide tours list

The Rolling Stones' No Filter Tour has topped the list of the live music industry magazine Pollstar’s highest-grossing worldwide tours of 2021.

The band’s two-month US series sold 516,000 tickets and brought in $115.5 million to lead the year-end tally.

The rescheduled No Filter trek – which opened in St. Louis, MO on September 26 – saw the Stones host their first-ever live series without drummer Charlie Watts, who died in a London hospital on August 24 at the age of 80 after hand-picking his friend Steve Jordan to sit in for him while recovering from an undisclosed surgery prior to his passing.

Harry Styles came in at No. 2 on the Pollstar review with an $86.7 million gross, followed by the Green Day/Weezer/Fall Out Boy “Hella Mega Tour” at No. 3 with $67.3 million in gross earning; The Eagles ($59..2 million) and Dead And Company ($50.2 million) rounded out the top 5.

Other rockers of note on the Pollstar chart included Guns N’ Roses at No. 7 ($47.3 million) and KISS at No. 30 ($16.9 million).
