Pollstar announced this week that out of all the popular summer tours, country mega-stars Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw's Brothers of the Sun tour is the most lucrative, grossing $4,272,326.

Former Pink Floyd frontman Roger Waters is the runner-up with "only" $2,086,906 in gross profits, securing Chesney and McGraw's No. 1 spot. Other top contenders are Van Halen, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Drake. Have you caught any of these shows so far this summer? If not, which summer tour would you like to attend?

The 2012 summer season has shaped up to be a great one for live music lovers, with mega-tours in virtually every genre raking in fans in cities across the nation. Every one of the acts are also certainly raking in the bucks--but which summer tour is the most lucrative of all?

    I've been wanting to see them since I was about 8 years old though never could until now. I hope they come down under.

    Spent a lot of money to take my grandkids to see the concert in Minneapolis >> The show was great and I would like to Thank Tim McGraw for stopping a fan from destorying the concert for many people, when he stopped singing and ask the security to remove a out of control fan >> After that we could enjoy his singing as they quieted down >. Thanks for careing for those who paid so much to see you >> YOU WERE GREAT >> As for Kenny all he seem to care about was he got the money and the hell with the fans who paid to hear him sing >> If he would have stop like Tim McGraw and asked for others to respect those who paid to see him could enjoy the show the crowd would have settled down >> But than he got his money the hell with the fans >> Never again as he was a waste of money >. Hire better security so the fans aren't disrespectful of others who enjoy the music >>> If it weren't for Tim McGraw the concert would have been a total waste of money >> THANKS AGAIN TIM McGRAW you made it worth while >>>

    I just find him very bland. Had no idea he was as popular as he is. I have no issue with him as a person. But his particular brand of country, for the most part, is as dull as dishwater. Except for the odd song here and there.

    I've not seen him live, I don't know. I was referring to his albums. Lowest common denominator country rock. But yeah each to their own.

    You too :)

    I love classic country (Johnny Cash, etc.), but the newer country just doesn't do it for me.

    Instead, I'm saving my money to see RUSH this October!
