GUNS N' ROSES' 'Not In This Lifetime' Tour Has Grossed More Than 0 Million

According to Billboard, eight concerts on the Australian and New Zealand leg of GUNS N’ ROSES“Not In This Lifetime” tour yielded a total gross of $38 million.

The trek’s overall gross — which does not include revenue yet to be reported from seven Asian markets during the first quarter — has now reached $230 million since its April 2016 launch.

The Australian leg of “Not In This Lifetime” included two shows in Sydney, where a total of 84,277 tickets were sold for February 10 and February 11 concerts at ANZ Stadium. The $9.2 million gross at the Sydney venue is the fourth-highest overall since the tour began a year ago.

The “Not In This Lifetime” tour features classic GUNS N’ ROSES lineup members Slash (guitar), Duff McKagan (bass) and Axl Rose (vocals) backed by drummer Frank Ferrer, guitarist Richard Fortus, keyboardist Dizzy Reed and new second keyboardist Melissa Reese.

According to Billboard, the North American leg of the “Not In This Lifetime” summer stadium tour grossed a whopping $116.8 million with over one million tickets sold, a staggering amount for a rock band in 2016.

The 2016 trek kicked off on June 23 and included 25 concerts in 21 stadiums, wrapping on August 22.

Out of the stadiums that hosted the band for two performances, the New York City market produced the top box office counts with ticket sales reaching $11.6 million at MetLife Stadium from 100,177 fans at two concerts. Meanwhile, Chicago’s Soldier Field, Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts and L.A.’s Dodger Stadium each topped the $8 million mark in revenue from their two-show stints.

As previously reported, GUNS N’ ROSES is coming back to North America this summer for at least another 15 stadium dates, as the band continues its reunion tour. The new North American run kicks off on July 27 in St. Louis, ending on September 8 in San Antonio.

The group has also mapped out a European jaunt that will begin on May 27 in Dublin, Ireland, ending on July 12 in the Netherlands. A July 15 show in Tel Aviv, Israel will also precede the North American leg.

The band kicked off its reunion trek last April with a club show in Hollywood and appearances in Las Vegas and at California’s Coachella festival.
