Guns N’ Roses may not have sold out all their shows on the Not In This Lifetime… tour like Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band did on The River tour, but with 1,048,617 people out of 1,108,307 attending their shows, the band is ranked at #1 for the highest-grossing tour of the summer.
Keep in mind that GNR have at least three more legs of their tour left, so the staggering $116.8 million they raked in during the North American leg is only going to grow. However, Bruce Springsteen would most likely have caught up to, if not surpassed GNR’s sales if he played as many dates, because the boss just billed over $33 million for seven shows.
With a total of $33,632,390, Bruce came in second in Hot Tours’ latest rankings. Coming in third was Barbra Streisand, which comes as no surprise since the singer is known for rarely touring over the span of her 50+ years career due to stage fright.
