Rush Make Billboard's Top Money-Makers List of 2015
Billboard magazine has just released their annual list of the Top Money Makers in the Music Industry for 2015. The list of 40 acts includes such notable entries as The Rolling Stones (#3), Billy Joel (#4), U2 (#8), AC/DC (#24), and Paul McCartney (#33).
Coming in at the very respectable #16 spot is Rush, with revenues totaling $12 million for the year. Of the $12 million haul for the band, the vast majority ($10.7M) was related to their R40 Live Anniversary tour - an impressive showing given the relatively short length of the tour.
In fact as the Billboard article states, "...touring is once again the determining factor for the 40 genre-spanning acts that topped Billboard's ranking of music’s highest-paid musicians of the past year..."
