Bon Jovi's current tour around North America has made them the highest earners of the year so far, in a poll of the most profitable roadshows of the region.

The 'Livin' On A Prayer' stars made a gross profit of $52.8m (£35m) from 'The Circle', which has sold out dates in the US and Canada.

The band performed at 38 shows in the first six months of this year, ranking them top on Pollstar's top 100 North American tours list.

James Taylor and Carole King's joint concerts came in second place, with $41m (£27m), and country singer Taylor Swift was in third.

Musicians such as the Jonas Brothers and Rihanna have recently been forced to cancel concerts as a result of poor ticket sales.
