Taylor Swift , Pink and One Direction were honored Thursday night at the 10th annual Billboard Touring Awards, held at the Roosevelt Hotel in New York City.

Taylor earned the Top Package Award, recognizing the top-grossing tour with three or more artists on the bill. She was joined on her Red Tour at various times by Ed Sheeran , Joel Crouse , Brett Eldredge , Florida Georgia Line and Casey James.

Pink received the Top Boxscore prize for her concerts at Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne, Australia, between July 7 and August 26. And 1D was celebrated with the Breakthrough Award.

Bon Jovi was a big winner at the event. The band earned the Top Tour Award and the Top Draw Award for their Because We Can trek. The first prize recognizes the top-grossing tour, and the latter honors the top ticket-selling tour.

Bon Jovi also picked up the Eventful Fans' Choice Award, based on fan "demands" on Eventful.com.

Bon Jovi claimed all of these victories despite the fact that Richie Sambora left their tour in April.

The winners were determined mostly through the Billboard Boxscore chart and box office performance between October 2012 and September of this year.
