The Rolling Stones have won the Top Boxscore Award at the 11th annual Billboard Touring Awards.

The awards over the last few years have normally been dominated by veteran artists like U2, Bon Jovi and Bruce Springsteen but, with most of them off the road in 2014, it was the newer artists like One Direction who dominated.
