The Guns N’ Roses Reunion Tour Has Become the Fourth-Highest Grossing Tour EVER
As if there was any doubt that the Guns N’ Roses reunion tour has been a license to print money, Billboard now reports that the trek has made history, grossing $475 million by the end of 2017. And what does that mean, exactly, besides the fact that everyone in GN’R got a new mansion for Christmas?
“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).”
In the words of Axl Rose, “Yowza!” Everyone knew this tour would do well, but I don’t know that anyone could have anticipated it do this well. If you listen closely, you can actually hear Izzy Stradlin kicking himself.
