Guns N’ Roses‘ bank accounts are ~loaded like a freight train~ following the Aussie leg of their Not In This Lifetime tour, as we pretty much knew they would be.
After a godzilla 270,000 Gunners diehards splashed out to see the semi-OG lineup perform together for the first time in nearly three decades at stadiums across the nation, the financials have come back showing just how much Axl, Slash, Duff & co made it November Rain.
The hard rock titans raked in an ungodly USD$38,291,060 gross across Australia and New Zealand during their three-week sweep, which is a staggering AUD $51,172,173 and legitimately amounts to more than the GDP of some small countries (tough break, Tuvalu).
Altogether, the band’s much-frothed reunion tour has racked up over AUD$300 million and counting worldwide, with the US leg alone adding damn near close to half of that in money (honey) to Guns N’ Roses’ cash jungle.
Now, we don’t know how much of that moolah is going to each band member, but we do know that OG rhythm axeman Izzy Stradlin chose to sit out the tour because his bandmates refused to “split the loot equally”.
Either way, at this point, the band don’t really need to conquer the world again if/when they decide to release a brand new album with their semi-reformed OG lineup, because at this point they can probably just afford to buy it.
Still, let’s see if they can top those earnings when they return to tour Down Under again in the not-too-distant future.
