According to the IQ Magazine, in the latest stop on their Not in this Lifetime Tour, Guns N’ Roses have broken the attendance record for a hard rock/metal act at Sweden’s Ullevi Stadium in Gothenburg. 64,289 people turned up to see the band perform, surpassing the record previously set by Metallica (63,036 attendees).
The two-decades-in-the-making reunion of Guns N’ Roses has become the fourth highest-earning tour in history, grossing US$475 million, as Billborad reports. Guns N’ Roses had surpassed former Pink Floyd member Roger Waters’ marathon 2010-13 “The Wall Live” tour. U2 holds the record with $784 million earned on the Irish rockers’ extravagant, in-the-round “360” tour from 2009 to 2011. In second and third places with just above $500 million each are The Rolling Stones for stadium concerts a decade ago and Coldplay for a global tour completed in November.
