U2 Wins Big at Billboard Touring Awards


U2 took home the two biggest prizes Thursday night at the 8th Annual Billboard Touring Awards, held at New York's Roosevelt Hotel.  Having wrapped up its impressive two-year 360 Tour in July, the band was awarded in the Top Tour and Top Draw categories, which award the top grossing and ticket-selling tour, respectively.  Journey, meanwhile, was honored with the Legend of Live Award in honor of the band's 38 years of touring.  Check out a list of all the winners below.
