Photo Courtesy - Live Nation Entertainment/Interscope Records(NEW YORK) -- Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, Bon Jovi, U2 and Taylor Swift are among the nominees for this year's Billboard Touring Awards, which recognize the top touring artists and tours of the year.

U2's 360 Tour and Bon Jovi's The Circle Tour are both up for the Top Tour Award, which recognizes the trek that earned the most money, and the Top Draw Award, which recognizes the tour that sold the most tickets.  Swift is nominated for the Top Package Award, for the tour she did this past year with her friend Kellie Pickler and the group Gloriana.

Meanwhile, Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber are up for the Breakthrough Award, which goes to the artist who is still in their first decade as a headlining act, but has managed to earn enough money on the road to rank among the highest-grossing tours of the year.  Bieber's My World is also up for the Concert Marketing & Promotion Award, because of its sponsorship deal with Xbox, while Gaga's Monster Ball tour is up for the same award for its sponsorship deal with Virgin Mobile.

The awards will be handed out Nov. 4 in New York City.
