Roger Waters Veteran rockers ruled the 2012 Billboard Touring Awards as Roger Waters and Bruce Springsteen picked up Thursday night's top honors.

The Pink Floyd co-founder earned the Top Tour Award for the biggest grossing trek for his The Wall Live shows, while Springsteen claimed the Top Draw Award, for having the top ticket selling roadshow for his The Wrecking Ball gigs.

The 2012 Billboard Legend of Live title was presented to crooner Neil Diamond, while country trio Lady Antebellum was named the winner of the Breakthrough Award and pop superstar Lady Gaga emerged triumphant in the Eventful Fans' Choice Award, which is determined by devotees' demand for artists' concerts.

California's Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival was named Top Festival following its Tupac Shakur hologram stunt in April, and Kenny Chesney was crowned Road Warrior for his lengthy stints on tour.

The honors, which were determined by box office performance between October, 2011 and September, 2012, were handed out at a ceremony in New York on Thursday.
