Kenny Chesney’s blockbuster Goin’ Coastal Tour was one of the top grossing tour of 2011 according to Billboard:

It’s incredible that Taylor Swift grossed nearly $100 million on the road this year.

More incredible still, she didn’t come close to having the top-grossing tour of the year. In fact, she finished fifth, and Kenny Chesney’s $84.6 million on-road receipts for 2011 put him at sixth on Billboard’s Boxscore list of top-grossing tours of the year.

U2 topped the list with an astonishing $300 million, followed by Bon Jovi with $193 million in second. Third went to Take That with $185 million and Roger Waters landed in fourth with $150 million.

    Well done to Swift and Chesney. Does Taylor do stadiums or does she just tour more in the states and overseas?

    Taylor played Gillette 2 nights back to back, lots of places had at least 2 shows. She did 4 in LA. I was at the 1st of 2 nights in MN, met her before the show & was upgraded to the pit. More amazing than Christmas itself!

    Taylor doesnt have a country fan base.sorry..teenagers who don”t like country go to her show, so lets dont get carried away…yeah she is very popular but to a certain demographic…i myself thinks she sould never win a country EOTYaward despite grossing a lot,she is not country!!
