Los Angeles - U2's current 360° world tour is officially the most successful ever, beating the record set by The Rolling Stones four years ago.

The Irish supergroup, who played Brazil at the weekend, will gross ticket sales of more than $700m when their 360° tour finally wraps up in Canada in July, Live Nation said.

The U2 360° tour, staged in the round in a transportable stadium, will have been seen by more than 7 million people in 30 countries when it ends.

The Rolling Stones 2005-07 Bigger Bang Tour took $554m in ticket sales, Live Nation said.
