BON JOVI AND U2 IN BILLBOARD TOURING AWARDS

Jon Bon Jovi
Billboard magazine has announced their finalists for the 2011 Billboard Touring Awards and they are looking very much like last year's list.

Both Bon Jovi and U2 repeat as nominees in the Top Tour and Top Draw categories, going up against British giants Take That (last year, they were up against AC/DC). U2 took the award in both categories.

The awards are based on box office figures from October 1, 2010 to September 30, 2011 and will be given out November 10 at the Roosevelt Hotel in New York.

Billboard's Ray Waddell said "To a large degree, the touring industry rebounded this year, and the tours, venues, companies and events that are finalists for the 2011 Billboard Touring Awards are examples of the types of shows that worked. The wide range of success shown by the finalists proves superstars are still superstars, artist development is still happening, and fans still love the live concert experience."

The nominees in the artist categories:

Top Tour:
Bon Jovi, The Circle
Take That, Progress Live
U2, 360

Top Draw:
Bon Jovi
Take That
U2
