A FIRM owned by the members of U2 last year recorded profits of over €3.7m as it reaped the dividends of the band's blockbusting world tour and new music.
New accounts filed by U2 Ltd show that the firm recorded the profits after sustaining a loss of €1m in 2014 - a positive swing of €4.7m.
The buoyancy of the firm's business is underlined, with its cash pile more than doubling during the year - going from €2.86m to €6.89m.
Last year, U2 grossed $152.2m in box office receipts as more than 1.28 million fans across the globe paid to see the band perform. Box office receipts are split between artist, promoter and venue owner.
The average gross from each U2 gig was $6.92m - easily the most lucrative average gross out of any of the performers touring last year. The band played 76 dates in 22 cities.
