It's pretty wild that the year is already half over, but you know what that means – besides early albums of the year – it's time to look at touring stats. We love looking at these from time to time, and Pollstar has compiled a list of the top earners of the year so far, and not surprisingly Metallica is at the top of the list.

Meanwhile, KISS have collected $58 million from 44 shows. The ultimate winner is Elton John with $82 million gross, followed by Pink. Here are how rock and metal artists fared:
