U2, Bon Jovi, Journey Honored At Billboard Touring Awards
U2 is still enjoying the spoils of their record-breaking 360 Degrees Tour. The group’s trek was the big winner at this year’s 8th annual Billboard Touring Awards, picking up honors for Top Tour and Top Draw. The Irish rockers were also up for the Top Boxscore award, but that ultimately went to the UK pop band Take That for their series of shows at London’s Wembley Stadium this summer. Bon Jovi is among the winners as well. The New Jersey band got the nod from their public, taking the Eventful Fans’ Choice Award. Journey was also celebrated with the Legend of Live honor in recognition of the group’s 38-year touring career. The 8th annual Billboard Touring Awards were presented in a ceremony in New York on Thursday night. The event capped off this year’s Billboard Touring Conference.
