Guns N’ Roses tour is believed to be the second most profitable tour ever

According to Pollstar, Guns N’ Roses last tour “Not in This Lifetime” is now believed that is the second most profitable ever, having generated $562 million.


Only in 2018, the band made $82 million with an average of $3.7 million per concert.

u2 is still the number 1 with “360” with $735 million. Other tours that generated over $500 million are Rolling Stones’ “A Bigger Band” with $558 million, Ed Sheeran’s “Divide” with $555 million, and Coldplay’s “A Head Full of Dreams” with $523 million.

About the end of the tour, Slash said:

“I/we want to thank ALL of you GN’R fans who were with us for any of 159 shows on the ‘Not in This Lifetime’ tour! It has been an amazing ride. And you guys made it amazing. So thank you from the bottom of my/our heart! Cheers!”

Last Month, Axl talked with Abu Dhabi Ignition about the bands future. He said:

“I’m sure we’ll be back… We all want to do the best we can for the fans – they come wanting a big performance and that is what we want to give them.

“We all push each other to go further in terms of our performance and commitment. It doesn’t matter how many performances you do, every crowd is different and you feed off that.”

“We’ve toured the world a few times over, but there are always places where we still haven’t performed. We played Iceland for the first time this year and we’re playing Hawaii for the first time this December – there are always places to go.”
