Coldplay's giant world tour in support of their album A Head Full of Dreams finally came to a close Wednesday night in Buenos Aires, Argentina. By the end of the nearly two-year run, the tour had grossed a total of $523,033,675, which makes it the third-highest grossing world tour of all time.
The tour began on March 31, 2016 at the same Argentine venue. During the outing, Coldplay played a total of 114 shows in 31 countries, with multiple treks through North America, Latin America and Europe, as well as stops in Asia and Australia.
As for the highest-grossing world tour of all time, that would be U2's 360 tour, which took in over $730 million during its run from June 2009 to July 2011. The Rolling Stones' 2005-2007 tour A Bigger Bang comes in at number two.
