Guns N’ Roses Unbelievable Money Earned Since 2016 Revealed


Guns N’ Roses’ Not In This Lifetime tour recently wrapped up after two and a half years in Honolulu, Hawaii, and Pollstar reports that it is the second-highest-grossing tour of all time, having generated an estimated $562 million since it began in April 2016.

According to Pollstar, Guns N’ Roses topped $82 million in sales during 2018 alone, having grossed an average of $3.7 million per show over the course of the 24-date run.

U2’s “360” ($735 million), The Rolling Stones’ “A Bigger Bang” ($558 million), Ed Sheeran’s “Divide” ($555 million) and Coldplay’s “A Head Full Of Dreams” ($523 million) also topped $500 million, and Sheeran will likely break the record in 2019 as his tour resumes.

Guns N’ Roses guitarist Richard Fortus announced in a new KSHE95 interview that the band intend to make a new album, and hinted that some work has already been done it. He said the band hope to release a new album ‘very soon’ and a new song could be out by the end of 2019. Alternative Nation transcribed Fortus comments.

He said, “The [Not in This Lifetime] tour is done. Three years, done.”

The host mentioned Axl Rose discussing what is ‘next’ at the final Honolulu show earlier this month. Fortus said that ‘next’ thing is a new record.

“We are going to try to do another record and get it out soon.”

He later said, “We’re hoping to get one out very soon.”

The host said he didn’t see the band rushing a new album.

Fortus said that he thinks the new record “will happen faster than you think.”

Fortus said he thinks the album will be good.

“How could it not be [good]? The band’s so great right now.”

The host asked if a new Guns N’ Roses song could be out by the end of 2019.

Fortus responded, “It could definitely happen.”

The host asked, “Do you already have stuff?”

Fortus cryptically responded, “Maybe.”
