Here are Some More Insane Numbers Behind Guns N’ Roses 2017 Stadium Tour


As of this past April, the Guns N’ Roses reunion tour — which kicked off last year — had grossed a whopping $230 million. And those numbers didn’t even include seven Asian markets the tour had recently played.

While we don’t have a total yet for Guns N’ Roses 2017 touring grosses — including those shows in Asia, a European stadium run early this summer and another U.S. stadium run shortly thereafter — some numbers from the latter U.S. run have started to trickle in via the latest Boxscore report [via The PRP] and… holy shit, these guys continue to get hella paid! As if that’s a surprise.

While some of these grosses may seem less impressive than last summer’s — although they’re still nothing to sneeze at — keep in mind that this summer’s run played mostly smaller markets. And GNR have a whole slew of U.S. arena dates on the horizon this fall!

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.
