According to Billboard.biz, when the reunited British boy band Take That blasted through the UK, they shattered gross records, toppling Bruce Springsteen's eight-year title as the highest grossing concert stand ever, from when he rocked Giants Stadium in his native New Jersey.
How did they do it? By selling out eight concerts at Wembley Stadium from June 30th through July 9th, with a gross of $61.7 million, according to Billboard Boxscore, and with an attendance of 623,737.
Springsteen's stand at Giants Stadium in 2003 grossed $38.6 million and drew 566,560 to 10 sellouts!
