Metallica Named Top Touring Metal Act Of Last 40 Years

Iconic metal band Metallica has been named the top touring metal act of last 40 years, according a new report from Pollstar.

The report was commissioned and published in commemoration of Pollstar‘s 40th anniversary. It consists of two different charts that are based on box-office data from the last four decades, dubbed the “Pollstar Era.” The first chart shows the top touring artists based on gross ticket sales and the second is based on the number of tickets sold.

Metallica were ranked No. 6 based on tickets sold, with a whopping total of 19,468,173 tickets. U2, Dave Matthews Band, the Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band and Elton John were the only five artists that sold more, in that order.
