GUNS N' ROSES' North American 'Not In This Lifetime' Stadium Tour Sold Over Million Tickets

Blabbermouth wrote:GUNS N' ROSES' North American "Not In This Lifetime" summer stadium tour reportedly sold over one million tickets, with the band being presented a special plaque for the occasion after concluding the trek on Monday in San Diego, California.

According to Page Six, GUNS N' ROSES celebrated the end of the tour by partying with some 200 guests at Hollywood's Roosevelt Hotel, where it was reported that "Axl Rose and Slash were accompanied by scantily clad models to the rooftop for pizza." Rose was also "seen on the roof sitting on the hotel's giant sign." Then "at 5 a.m. the band ordered up 50 egg sandwiches before Rose turned in for the night."

Live Nation exec Bob Roux predicted the company would sell one million tickets for the 25-show tour, roughly 90 percent of what was available. He added that some less well-attended shows were the result of the band playing cities it wanted to play, rather than sticking to the highest population centers that would better guarantee sellouts.

GUNS N' ROSES' "Not In This Lifetime" stadium tour features classic lineup members Slash (guitar), Duff McKagan (bass) and Axl Rose (vocals) backed by drummer Frank Ferrer, guitarist Richard Fortus, keyboardist Dizzy Reed and new second keyboardist Melissa Reese.

Drummer Steven Adler performed with GUNS N' ROSES at two shows early last month and at the second Dodger Stadium concert on August 19. Adler joined GUNS for "My Michelle" and "Out Ta Get Me" at all three dates.

Guitarist Izzy Stradlin remains the last member of the classic band to keep his distance from the current reunion, with unconfirmed reports suggesting that he was approached about the reunion, but did not wish to tour and/or was not happy with the money he was offered.
