U2 Takes Billboard’s Top Boxscore Honors
Held November 4 and 5 in New York City, the 2009 Billboard Touring Awards honored the concert industry’s top artists and industry professionals for 2009. Billboard’s Boxscores chart, actual box office performance figures reported between October 1, 2008 and September 30, 2009, were used to determine finalists and award winners.
Our friends, U2, were finalists in three major catagories: Top Tour, Top Draw, and Top Boxscore. With multiple July dates in Croke Park in Dublin, U2 took the honors as Top Boxscore for 2009. U2’s dates at Croke Park also won the group this award in 2005. Top Boxscore recognizes the top-grossing single engagement.
Gretsch sends its congratulations to Bono, The Edge, Adam, and Larry. They are true international superstars and undoubtedly among the hardest working musicians and road warriors in the business.
