The Rolling Stones Earned $179 Million

The legendary rock band continues to be one of the leaders in the music world, despite the fact that many argue that rock is going through its last years.

But the results of the work of artists appear according to the results of the previous year. So, in 2023, we can sum up some of the results of the previous year. And Billboard magazine, which has just published the exact numbers, will help us with this. Alas, rock and metal in this regard have long since given way to other genres. This can be clearly seen from the results – the Puerto Rican rapper Bad Bunny became the most profitable touring artist of the year.

The Rolling Stones, on the other hand, earned $179.3 million in 2022, having collected 949 million listeners on their views.

By the way, the Royal Mint of Great Britain has released a new collector’s coin dedicated to the cult British rock and roll band The Rolling Stones. This is already the fifth coin in the Musical Legends series. The previous four were released in honor of Queen, Elton John, David Bowie and The Who.

By mid-1971, the Rolling Stones were able to light up on £100 notes. They had just released the hugely successful Sticky Fingers and signed a lucrative deal with Atlantic Records to form their own label, Rolling Stones Records.

The Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood confirmed last month’s announcement that the band would release a new album in the summer of 2023 in a recent interview. Wood also said that on several tracks we will hear drummer Charlie Watts, who passed away last year at the age of 80. Drums on the rest of the songs were performed by Steve Jordan, who replaced him.

If this really happens, the new Rolling Stones album will be the band’s first full-length release since 2016’s Blue & Lonesome. However, that disc consisted entirely of covers of songs by famous bluesmen. As for the Rollings’ original material, there hasn’t been a record of their own songs since 2005 – it was the album “A Bigger Bang”.

The Rolling Stones are no longer youngsters. Mick Jagger and Keith Richards are the same age, they are both 78, Charlie Watts left our sinful world at the age of 80 last year, and the youngest of the Rollings, Ronnie Woods, will celebrate his 75th birthday. Despite their age, they are all still on stage. However, in a recent interview, Mick Jagger admitted that the high-energy lifestyle of a rock star is not for seventy-somethings.
