Guns n Roses 'Not In This Lifetime' ranked fourth highest grossing tour ever!
Guns N’ Roses’ Not In This Lifetime… Tour topped the $475 million mark in gross sales with the wrap of the band’s 2017 touring schedule on November 29th, reports Billboard.
The tour has played to more than 4.3 million fans worldwide at 123 headlining performances on five continents - and that does not include the crowds at various festival appearances during the first two years of the run.
The ongoing tour now ranks as the fourth-highest grossing tour of all time, based on Billboard’s Boxscore archives, surpassing Roger Waters’ The Wall Live tour that earned $459 million from 2010 through 2013. U2 heads up the all-time list with $736 million from its 360° stadium tour (2009-2011) followed by The Rolling Stones’ A Bigger Bang at $558 million (2005-2007). Coldplay is third with its recently completed A Head Full Of Dreams trek that grossed $523 million (2016-2017).
