Three years after Guns N’ Roses first launched their Not in This Lifetime reunion tour, the worldwide trek finishes 2019 as the third-highest grossing tour in history.
That’s according to the latest numbers from Billboard, which reports that the 158 Not in This Lifetime shows sold 5,371,891 tickets, which brought in a gross of $584.2 million.
That figure puts GN’R ahead of Coldplay‘s 2016-2017 A Head Full of Dreams tour, which previously occupied the number-three spot. Ed Sheeran‘s Divide tour is the number-one highest grossing tour of all time with over $775 million, followed by U2‘s 360 tour, with over $736 million.
The Not in This Lifetime tour featured the reunion of original Guns N’ Roses members Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan. Prior to the tour, the trio hadn’t played together since 1993.
