U2's current worldwide tour has become the highest-earning in history, beating the record set by The Rolling Stones between 2005 and 2007.
The Irish rockers' second show in Sao Paulo on 10 April, took their gross takings for their 360° tour to a massive £305.50million.
By the time Bono and his bandmates play their final show of the sold out international tour on 30 July, they will have racked up an estimated £427.8million in total.
On average, U2's 360° tour attracts 63,000 people per show and takes $6.4 million (£3.9 million), according to Billboard Boxscore.
The 360° tour kicked off in July 2009 in Barcelona and more than seven million tickets have been sold to date.
The band are set to perform 110 dates in total and they still have more than 20 gigs to play.
