Reunited rock group The Police had the highest-earning music tour in North America in 2007, official figures show.
The band's 54 gigs in the US and Canada generated $131.9m (£66.5m), almost double the total of the second-placed act, country star Kenny Chesney.



Justin Timberlake was in third position, followed by Celine Dion and then Van Halen, another group which got back together to tour this year.

The totals were compiled by American trade publication Pollstar.

Country couple Tim McGraw and Faith Hill were in sixth position in 2007, while veteran acts Rod Stewart and Genesis made seventh and eighth places respectively.

Completing the top 10 were young vocalist Josh Groban and Grammy-winning country group Rascal Flatts.

Pollstar also ranked the cost of going to see the biggest acts in the US and Canada over the past 12 months.

It put Barry Manilow and Celine Dion at the top of that list.

Both of those stars were charging, on average, $141 (£71) per ticket.
