Take home pay

I read where the Bigger Bang tour grossed $450 million and is the highest grossing tour in history. I'm curious if anyone knows what the stones' net would be from this. I've read a couple books ( as I'm sure you all have ) where everyone thought the stone's charged too much for tickets in the late sixties early seventies. It was Ralph Gleasons rant in Rolling Stone that ultimately lead to Altamont ( Stanley Booth), and in S.T.P. $6.00 a ticket had everyone "up in arms". I paid $150 a ticket in 1999 for an arena show in Pittsburgh and it was worth every cent. Times sure have changed!! But I am curious, how much is the stones take from a tour. Anyone have any ideas?
