If you count the crew and the venue employees, there was probably over 40,000 in KC!

On Zoo TV they only had 37,000 in that stadium, so they beat their personal record. Popmart only had 23,000! However in 1994 Pink Floyd has 57,000, so there's always room for improvement! Maybe in 2027 on the JT 40th anniversary tour!

To be fair, a lot of Louisiana peeps who wanted to see this tour had already done so by the time the N.O. date was even announced (e.g. me teehee)--U2 hasn't made a tour stop here in ages (I wasn't even a fan then :0)! Granted, I did attend this show because I'm obsessed, I certainly wavered a good bit prior to purchasing tickets (despite my fandom, I can't truthfully say it's a tour that warrants repeat attendance... which is kinda to be expected when half your setlist is carved into stone (though I'm still puzzled by the lack of R&H tunes)).

So yeah, even though the attendance appears to have been subpar (not that you could really tell during the show), I'm curious what the numbers would be had New Orleans been announced from the outset.

That whole third leg was kind of a mess and wreaked of afterthought. Kinda wish they would have just moved on to South America instead of doing it. They could have been wrapped up by now and on to promoting the new album.

Will this tour be the top tour of the year or will Coldplay or maybe even guns n roses top it?

Maybe that was the reason for the additional US dates on this 3rd leg?!

Thought crossed my mind back when the 3rd leg was announced.

I wonder how much losing out on the 4 mil from the cancelled St Louis date will hurt? Could be a tight finish for 1st place and that money might make the difference for the #1 spot.

Also have wondered if that will be the deciding factor on whether they perform Australia or not, but from what I gather, Australia is not in the mix for this tour.

The citations are third-party archived versions of Billboard Boxscores, as it appears they aren't kept by Billboard themselves beyond what is current.

Yeah, i saw that and was kind of confused. No numbers for Europe, yet it seems those somehow must be calculated into the total... or not, i'm not sure. Also looks like they are moving to arenas for the last leg.
Either way, it looks like it will probably top U2's.

Meanwhile, this reminded me that GNR got 73k in Melbourne for one show. U2's only shows on the current tour to beat this figure are 81k in Dublin and 155k across two shows in Saint-Denis.

If we're talking about gross though, how much was a gun n roses ticket? Are they as expensive as the u2 top tickets?

They are almost identical. i think GNR tickets were 117, so maybe a few bucks cheaper on avg than U2
