Sur­prise, sur­prise: Guns N’ Roses make a ton of cash on their in­cred­i­ble Not In This Life­time... tour

Kerrang! (UK) - - Contents -

HERE’S AXL Rose, look­ing full of life as Guns N’ Roses chalk up three nights at New York’s mas­sive Madi­son Square Gar­den last week, as part of the on­go­ing Not In This Life­time Tour. Pre­sum­ably he’s also just got a text from his ac­coun­tant with the news that the band’s Euro­pean shows this sum­mer grossed a whop­ping $112 mil­lion (£85.1 mil­lion) in ticket sales. The two dates in Lon­don alone trousered $17.2 mil­lion of that to­tal. And that’s

on top of the $230 mil­lion (£174.8 mil­lion) the world trek had al­ready done by April this year.

Ob­vi­ously that’s the gross of ticket sales, and there are loads of costs in­volved, but it still leaves a hell of a lot of ched­dar in GN’R’S pock­ets. So, yeah, don’t ex­pect to see Axl us­ing a Groupon any time soon…
