When the U2 360 tour rolled through Denver on May 21 at Invesco Field, it was exactly one week removed from the massive 108,800-person concert in Mexico City. The tour was huge (Huge! Remember how that stage dwarfed the grid at Invesco?) and on Monday, Live Nation released a report drilling down some of the numbers of tour that lasted a little more than two years, exactly 110 concerts and about 7.1 million people. Below is a rundown of the facts and figures of the bygone U2 360 tour.

I'm no fan. I'm more of an anti-fan (one of those people who wants a dislike button on FB). U2 made an 360 appearance here in South Africa too and true to form Bono made a statement during their first concert that caused a bit of a political ruckus. That sort of thing and their rather generic sounding music of late is why I'm no fan. But I have to admit that doesn't stop them being beter than average entertainers. Kudos to them but you won't find me at one of their concerts again.

Oh my. Impressive numbers. How many children died from hunger in Africa during the tour? How many pounds of carbon released across the globe from the buses and trucks carrying the gear? I mean, get real.
