British pop stars Take That have bettered The Boss by shattering a concert record set by Bruce Springsteen.
The group reunited with former member Robbie Williams in 2010 and set off on a tour together this summer which included eight gigs at London’s Wembley Stadium.

The concerts, which ran from 30 June until 9 July, grossed a massive $60.8 million with an attendance of 623,737, shattering a previous record for the highest grossing concert stand which has been held by Springsteen for the last eight years.

The Boss’s 10-gig run at New Jersey’s Giants Stadium in 2003 made $38.6 million and drew 566,560 spectators, according to Billboard.com.
