The Rolling Stones perform at Old Trafford on June 5, 2018 in Manchester, England. 

The trek played to 1.5 million fans over 28 sold-out shows.

The close of the second European leg of The Rolling Stones’ No Filter tour finds the band with 14 more sellouts to its credit, selling out every show of its jaunt between May and July, to lead the Hot Tours ranking dated Aug. 4. 

In all, the tour’s second European leg, which kicked off May 17 at Dublin’s Croke Park and concluded at PGE Narodowy in Warsaw on July 8, grossed $117,844,618 over 750,874 tickets sold, according to data reported to Billboard. It was led by a significant chunk of change from the band’s two-night set at London Stadium, which brought in $20,496,697 over the shows on May 22 and 25.

AEG and Concerts West promoted the entire leg together, with other local promoters adding support on various dates.

The recently reported dates are coupled with another 14-date set that ran from Sept. 9-Oct. 25, 2017 on the continent that brought in $119,957,689, making the tour’s overall gross $237,802,307 with 1,506,219 tickets and 28 sold-out shows.

How does that compare to past jaunts? The Stones’ most recent tour leg of a similar length came in early 2016, when the band toured Latin America from Feb. 3 (Santiago, Chile) to March 25 (Havana, Cuba) -- 14 dates in all, though the Havana date was put on for free. Then, the band accrued $83,874,323 over 729,292 tickets sold.

Meanwhile, the band’s Zip Code Tour, which stretched from May 20-July 15, 2015, in the U.S., earned just under $110 million.

The Stones' follow-up tour has not yet been announced.
