St. Louis, MO (KSDK) - Preliminary numbers show Sunday night's U2 concert is the biggest in the city's history.

The U2 360 tour is also the top grossing tour worldwide with more than seven million tickets sold.

President of the Cardinals, Bill DeWitt III, said crews will spend Monday and Tuesday taking down the U2 stage. New sod for the field is being cut in Colorado and will be shipped to St. Louis via refrigerated trucks Monday evening.

DeWitt said the sod will be in place by Wednesday. Crews will then spend the remainder of the week getting the field ready for Monday's ballgame.
