Who is the most profitable rock band of all time? Fox News says it is Metallica – clocking it at 1.4 Billion in concert tickets alone.
Metallica may be right behind another famous rock band, U2, who with their 360 tour in 2011 became the highest-grossing concert tour in history pulling in $736 million. But the metal band’s profits continue to grow putting them alongside the Rolling Stones and Taylor Swift.
Metallica, the heavy metal band from Los Angeles, circa 1981, has grossed over $1.4 billion touring over their almost 40-year career, according to Pollster, making them arguably the world’s biggest, most profitable heavy metal band of all time.
