4 of 12: U2 comes in fourth place on the Forbes' List, having earned $78 million in the 12-month time period.

The legendary Irish rockers wrapped up their record-breaking '360' tour - which grossed $736 million over three year - in August of 2011, just late enough to count a summer of touring in our scoring period, according to Forbes' List.

The rockers are known for their numerous studio albums, with their most recent being the 2009 hit 'No Line on the Horizon.'
