It’s Official: GN’R’s North American Tour Brought In Big Bucks

The members of Guns N' Roses are rockin' -- and rich these days.

The group's “Not In This Lifetime…” Tour, featuring the reunion of original members Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan (and occasionally Steven Adler) grossed $116.8 million during a summer North American tour that began June 23 in Detroit and played 21 stadiums through August 22.

The trek drew more than a million fans and adds to a tally that included April shows in Los Angeles, Las Vegas (where two concerts grossed $6.2 million), Mexico City and at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.

Rose is currently on the road with AC/DC, helping the group make up U.S. dates postponed in March due to Brian Johnson's hearing issues, while GNR will be back at it October 27 in Lima, Peru, kicking off an 11-city South American tour.
