"Billboard" has a list of "The 25 Highest-Grossing Touring Artists Since 1990" . . . and interestingly enough, it's filled with artists who originally broke out in the '70s and '80s.



In fact, there are just FOUR acts who began in the past 24 years:  The Dave Matthews Band and Toby Keith, who both debuted in 1993 . . . Kenny Chesney, whose first album came out in 1994, and Coldplay, who debuted in 2000.



Among the Top 10, the average age of the singers is 56-and-a-half, and not one is younger than 46.  Here's the Top 15, along with their gross from 1990 up to now . . . and the number of shows they've performed.



1.  The Rolling Stones, $1.6 billion, from 538 shows


2.  U2, $1.5 billion, from 526 shows


3.  Bruce Springsteen, $1.2 billion, from 727 shows


4.  Madonna, $1.1 billion, from 382 shows


5.  Bon Jovi, $1 billion, from 578 shows


6.  Elton John, $787 million, from 956 shows


7.  Dave Matthews Band, $777 million, from 992 shows


8.  Celine Dion, $738 million, from 1,143 shows


9.  Kenny Chesney, $753 million, from 755 shows


10.  The Eagles, $702 million, from 383 shows


11.  The Police / Sting, $556 million, from 605 shows


12.  Roger Waters, $547 million, from 316 shows


13.  Paul McCartney, $506 million, from 220 shows


14.  Billy Joel, $500 million, from 577 shows


15.  Rod Stewart, $497 million, from 714 shows



( has the Top 25.  Note:  They put Celine Dion at #8, one spot ahead of Kenny Chesney, even though their numbers say she grossed about $15 million less.  It's unclear why, so there may be a mistake there.)
