Sir Paul McCartney may have been recorded as the top touring artist in the world for 2002, raking in $126.1 million.

But, according to Billboard Boxscores, the Billy Joel and Elton John Tour juggernaut was not far behind as one of the top performers of the year, with 34 arena dates that grossed $66 million in the United States.

The tour was promoted in each market by CCE, and plans are afoot for more dates in 2003.
