Top tours of 2010- the highest grossing concert tours, based on worldwide box office receipts. Photos of the artists are included on this list of the biggest grossing concert runs of the year. 2010's live concert rankings show that it was a rather lackluster year for the touring business, hurt by many U2 cancellations due to Bono's injury, as well as the lack of other largescale stadium tours. The biggest box office draw in 2010 for live music was, somewhat surprisingly, Bon Jovi. To see average ticket price, average tickets sold, total tickets, and number of cities each tour played in, see Pollstar's full wrapup
