Billboard Magazine has posted a list of the Top 40 Money Makers of 2012 noting the net revenue from album/video sales and concert tours from 2011 (Not really sure why they're calling it the 2012 list).
Coming in at the #32 spot was Rush's, led by the 2011 leg of their Time Machine Tour:RushThanks to GeddyWannaBe and Sam Forth for passing along the news.
The Canadian prog-rock power trio remains a mighty draw on the road, thanks to the band's deep catalog of anthems like "Tom Sawyer," "Closer to the Heart" and "The Spirit of Radio," and the chops of bassist/vocalist Geddy Lee, guitarist Alex Lifeson and drummer Neil Peart. The band's Time Machine tour continued through the first half of 2011, grossing $14.1 million in the United States and netting $4.8 million. Rush also made noise at retail, generating U.S. album sales of 431,000 units. Adding to the revenue mix: a concert recording titled "Time Machine: Live in Cleveland 2011" debuted and peaked at No. 54 on the Billboard 200 in November, with the live show kicking off a new deal with Roadrunner Records.
