The biggest musicians in the world jet set to dozens of countries. And after a few decades at it, they can rack up quite a few airline miles.

The travel deal company Travelbird put together a list of the 36 most-traveled musicians in the world. They looked at the historical tour information of each artist and measured the travel distances for each engagement, then added them all up. The performances include arena shows, festival appearances, and road trips, but they don't include private performances. They also translated the number of miles into how many times the musicians could circumnavigate the globe.

The bulk of the list includes pop superstars and longtime acts like Metallica and Bob Dylan. But the single most-traveled musician is, surprisingly, a DJ.

Here are the 10 musicians who've been on the road more than anyone else.
