Not only did Bon Jovi hit No. 1 across the globe, but the band’s $259.5 total gross was also the highest in its career.  And they did it without Richie Sambora.

There were also a couple of newcomers to the Top 20 Worldwide Tours.  One Direction grabbed 10th place by grossing a total of $114 million, and Bruno Mars clocked in at 17th with his $72.4 million total.
