    That little band from Dublin posted another stellar year of ticket sales, with U2's box-office take totaling $123 million, according to the concert-sales gurus at Pollstar. Taking the top spot wasn't even much of a competition, with Bono and the boys besting the Boss by around $30 million. Rounding out the top 10 after Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band were Elton John/Billy Joel, Britney Spears, AC/DC, Kenny Chesney, Jonas Brothers, Dave Matthews Band, Fleetwood Mac and Metallica. And despite the down economy, grosses for 2009 were reportedly up over the previous year. Rock on.

    With 2009 sales "Stronger," maybe Kanye West shouldn't have canceled his tour after all.
