The second European leg of the Rolling Stones’ No Filter tour, which ended in Warsaw on 8 July, grossed $117,844,618 and sold 750,874 tickets, according to Billboard.

The two nights played by the Stones in their home city, at London Stadium on 22 and 25 May during the second leg, were responsible alone for grosses of $20,496,697. They returned to the city for a 19 June date at Twickenham Stadium. The tour was promoted by AEG and Concerts West, with support from local promoters on certain dates. Thus the total for the entire 28-date itinerary over 2017 and 2018 was $237,802,307, with 1,506,219 tickets sold.
Billboard reports that the band’s last tour of a similar length, their early 2016 jaunt in Latin America, played 14 shows (one of them, in Havana, for free) and grossed $83,874,323, with 729,292 tickets sold.
