Just another reason why the classics are the best! Guns N’ Roses, a band formed in 1985, is still breaking records and surpassing modern music.

Guns N’ Roses unexpected reunion tour is the third biggest grossing tour in history, according to Billboard.

How many coins did the “Not In This Lifetime” tour rack in? $584.2 million thanks to 5,371,891 tickets sold and 158 concerts. O’ Sweet Child of Mine!

Who is beating the classic rock group? Pop singer Ed Sheeran’s “Divide” tour of 2017-2019 holds the number one spot at  $775 million. U2 is a close second with $736 million in the bank from its 360º tour between 2009-2011.

The “Not In This Lifetime” show has been on the road for three consecutive years and ended on November, 6th 2019. Consisting of original members, Axel Rose, Slash, and Duff McKagan, the band unleashed their musical powers for the world to hear again.

Axel Rose said in 2016 that hosting a “reunion tour with the whole lineup in the future.” is simply not likely  “in this lifetime,” before driving away. Hence the meaning behind the title fo the tour.

Is the band going away? Not likely. Guns N’ Roses announced they’re working on an album for the first time since 2008.

We will all be eagerly awaiting its arrival!
