Guns N' Roses' 'Not In This Lifetime' Believed To Be Second-Highest-Grossing Tour Of All Time

Guns N' Roses' "Not In This Lifetime" is now believed to be the second-highest-grossing tour of all time, having generated an estimated $562 million since it began two and a half years ago.

According to Pollstar, "Not In This Lifetime" 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.

At least four other tours have topped $500 million in sales: 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) tours.

Sheeran's "Divide" tour resumes in 2019, and with 45 headlining stadium dates already booked, the British singer will likely overtake U2 and claim the title of highest-grossing tour of all time.

"Not In This Lifetime", which launched in April 2016, topped the $475 million mark in gross sales with the final show of the band's 2017 touring schedule in November of last year in Los Angeles.

About 70 people travel with the "Not In This Lifetime" show in addition to the truck drivers; that number goes upwards of five hundred, including the local workers, by show date once catering, security, etc. are factored in, according to the GN'R tour's production manager, Dale "Opie" Skjerseth.

GUNS kicked off its long-rumored and long-awaited reunion tour in April 2016 with a club show in Hollywood and appearances in Las Vegas and at California's Coachella festival.

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