They're one of the biggest rock bands of all time, touring one of their most acclaimed studio albums on its 30th anniversary - so it stands to reason that U2's coffers will be healthily stuffed following the end of their continent-spanning 'Joshua Tree' jaunt.

Just how stuffed, however, may come as a surprise.

Bono and the lads earned a whopping $316 million (€271 million) from their 50-date tour, which was spread over four different legs since kicking off in May.

They sold over 2.7 million tickets on the tour and its success means that they're on course to be one of 2017's top-grossing tours across any genre - a feat they've managed four times since 2000.

Not bad for five months' work, all told.

They've also announced more live dates for North America next summer, when they'll tour new album 'Songs of Experience' - so don't bet against them featuring highly on the 2018 charts, either.
