Metallica earned a whopping $110 million and took the number 3 spot for top touring earners of 2010.

Bon Jovi was number 1 with $201.1 million for the year and AC/DC was number 2 with $177 million.  Yes, BON JOVI beat out Metallica, you have to remember all of those baby boomers, many more of them and the majority would probably enjoy Bon Jovi over Metallica.  Not that I dislike Bon Jovi, I would just choose a Metallica show over a Bon Jovi show, that's all.  And, may I ask, what does one DO with that much money?  I'm hoping to see a chunk go to charity.
