Published Sep 30, 2009Remember that massive, Earth-pillaging world tour that U2 kicked off earlier this year? Well, it turns out that not only is the tour hastening the Earth's environmental collapse but it's also not even turning a profit, yet.
According to a report from BBC 6Music, the tour has yet to make any money, despite its over $3.2 million Canadian in ticket sales to date. The reason for this is the fact that it costs over $782,000 a night to put on.
Still, while the tour has already been running for a while since (launching June 30th), it's not like the band are running out of time to spin some gold. The tour still has a full year to go, so the members of U2 can still hope that piles of money come their way. After all, McMansions don't come cheap.
