THE ROLLING STONES have smashed US touring records - their 2005 BIGGER BANG circuit of North America is the most successful US concert tour of all time, according to concert website Pollstar.

The BROWN SUGAR band sold $162million (GBP94 million) worth of tickets and played 42 performances to 1.2 million fans.

The Stones broke their own US tour record from 1994, when they made $121 million (GBP70.1 million). They earned $3.6 million (GBP2 million) per night from tour gigs.

U2 are the second most successful touring act of 2005, making $138.9 million (GBP80.1 million) with 78 shows in the US and Canada.

The Irish band, fronted by BONO, were previously thought to be the highest earners - because the Stones promoters refused to release financial information before the entire US leg of their tour had come to a close.

Canadian singer CELINE DION is in third place, having made $81.3 million (GBP47.1 million) from 155 dates at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.

Former BEATLE SIR PAUL McCARTNEY and THE EAGLES complete the top five, with ticket sales of $77.3 million (GBP44.8 million) and $76.8 million (GBP44.5 million) respectively.
