It’s been revealed that Guns N’ Roses’ shows in Australia and New Zealand on their Not In This Lifetime tour grossed $38 million in sold ticket revenue.
The latest figures were published by Billboard’s Boxscore and show the reformed outfit featuring Axl Rose, Duff McKagan and Slash’s eight shows in February have been a huge financial success.
The tour’s overall gross has now reached $230m since it kicked off in April last year – with Billboard reporting that the figure doesn’t include the revenue from seven Asian markets from the first quarter of the year.
Guns N’ Roses are top of the pile in the most recent Boxscore top 10 highest earning chart, which also features Def Leppard, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Twenty One Pilots, Santana and Green Day.
Axl Rose and co will return to the road next month for dates in Europe, starting with a set at Ireland’s Slane Castle. They’ll then return to North America for a run of summer shows.
