By Chelsea Lewis ,

Jon Bon Jovi's Because We Can tour has been named the highest-grossing tour of 2013. The tour has made stops all across the world.

The rock 'n' roll legend took in over $205 million in revenue, according to Billboard. The band played 90 shows on the worldwide tour and all 90 of the shows sold out.

Over two million fans packed a variety of stadiums and venues to get a glimpse of Bon Jovi and hear rock classics like "Livin' on a Prayer" and "I'll Be There For You."

The Because We Can tour surpassed acts like Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, P!nk and The Rolling Stones.

The second highest grossing tour was not given to a musician. The Michael Jackson The Immortal World Tour by Cirque Du Soleil took second place honors, making over $157 million.

After many shows and countless nights on tour, Daily Mail added, that the Because We Can tour will be wrapping up in Brisbane, Australia.

No word yet on what the band has planned after they are done with this tour.
