U2 made history as they wrapped their 360 Tour in Canada on Saturday after pulling in more than $736 million and playing for 7.2 million fans around the world.
The Irish rockers took the stage in Moncton, New Brunswick for the final stop on the massive trek, which has become the highest-grossing tour ever since kicking off on 30 June, 2009.

Supporting acts Carney and Arcade Fire warmed up the 75,000-strong crowd, before U2 took the stage for a set which included their hits I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For, Beautiful Day, Elevation and Sunday Bloody Sunday.

One of the evening’s most poignant moments came when frontman Bono performed The Ballad of Springhill in honor of the nearby town destroyed by an earthquake in 1958.

Before taking their final bow, Bono sprayed the front rows with a bottle of champagne cracked open for the special occasion.

He told the crowd, “This is the best time we could be having anywhere.”
