More than five million people witnessed Guns N’ Roses’ Not In This Lifetime tour during the trek’s lengthy run

When Guns N’ Roses announced they would reunite for a worldwide tour with original members Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan, everyone knew it would be big, but few knew just how big. The band kicked off their highly publicized Not in This Lifetime reunion tour three years ago, and as interest built, they kept adding more and more dates. Now, that worldwide tour is officially the third-highest grossing tour in history.

According to new figures from Billboard, Guns N’ Roses earned that No. 3 spot playing 158 shows on their Not in This Lifetime tour, which pushed 5,371,891 tickets and earned the band a gross of $584.2 million. Just think about that a minute. More than five million people witnessed Guns N’ Roses reunion tour. That’s a huge number.

That number put Guns N’ Roses in front of Coldplay with their 2016-2017 A Head Full of Dreams tour, which previously was No. 3 on the tally. So, what’s number one? Ed Sheeran’s Divide tour is the highest grossing tour of all time with more than $775 million, and U2’s 360 tour comes in a No. 2 with more than $736 million.

Before their Not in This Lifetime tour, original Guns N’ Roses members Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan hadn’t played a show together since their breakup back in 1993.
