    The magazine said BTS' shows at Pasadena's Rose Bowl earned $16.6 million, "making it the single highest-grossing engagement in the venue's [history], outpacing previous high marks by Taylor Swift and U2, as well as co-headlining stints by Beyoncé and Jay-Z and Eminem and Rihanna."

    "These U.S. figures are not just groundbreaking as international artists, but for the touring industry at large," it added.
