Guns N’ Roses European Tour Numbers Are In, and They’re Even More Insane Than the U.S. Numbers

0

The latest Boxscore report has landed and, as usual, The PRP’s done the heavy-lifting of sorting through it and posting the box office numbers of some notable metal and hard rock bands.

This week’s report is heavy on numbers from Guns N’ Roses early summer European tour. Tacking on to the whopping $230 million the tour had grossed as of April of this year since it started in 2016 — and with millions more earned from this past summer’s North American stadium run — the European shows boast some of the highest grosses yet, with several shows taking in more than $6 million, and two London shows combining for over $17 million.

Note that these numbers are not a wholly accurate reflection of how much money these artists take home. After the ticket numbers are in, the bands still need to pay the opening acts, cover their crew and travel expenses, share a cut with the promoter, pay their manager and booking agent, etc. On the other side of it, the numbers also don’t include any money earned from merch sales. But these Boxscore reports do provide a general idea of the earning power of each of these bands, especially relative to one another.
