Stones ’03: 2nd Highest Grossing Ever

The Rolling Stones’ 2002-03 Licks world tour posted the second-highest gross ever, Billboard Bulletin reports. The tour grossed nearly $300 million and played to more than 3.4 million people, putting it behind only their own marathon Voodoo Lounge stadium tour, which grossed $320 million in 1994-95.

For Licks, the Stones played stadiums, arenas and theaters — sometimes all three in the same market — and filled venues to 99% capacity over 116 dates. Billed as the band’s 40th-anniversary tour, Licks began Sept. 3, 2002, in Boston, and ended Oct. 2 in Zurich.
