thanks SuperYO. Most interesting thing was how far back Coldplay was. I was thinking U2 would be in a close battle with both GnR and Coldplay for number 1.

I know U2 will finish strong with the shows in Q4 (thats October thru December right?)

So if GnR has 20 arena shows, they will probably bring in about 35 million. And U2's 10 stadium shows will bring in about 70 to 80 million.

It will be interesting to see who ends up on top at the end...

Gonna be tight between the 3 in the end I reckon. Coldplay have played a few stadiums that haven't been reported yet

How many gigs have Coldplay and guns n roses done this year compared to U2's 51?

Coldplay have played 52 gigs this year with 5 more to come. So 57 in total. They have so far grossed 247,708,735. Which is more or less exactly the same what u2 have grossed from 41 shows. U2 have 10 more shows to report Coldplay 5. So u2 will 100% finish above Coldplay playing less shows

Looks like coldplay will have about 57 2017 dates
Looks like GnR have 57 stadium dates and 20 arena dates...

So yeah. gonna be really close.

I think Coldplay will be third,

And heres the quick math.

U2 makes about 1.2 million more per show than GnR. Over 51 dates, that's 61 million dollars more in U2's column.

BUT

GnR plays 6 more stadiums at almost 5 mill a piece = 28-30 million
Then 20 arena dates bringing in about 30-35 million
Giving them somewhere around 58 to 65 million total..

Giving them even to slightly better odds at hitting number 1 than U2.

There's gonna be a few million in it either way between gnr and u2. Coldplay are out the running and will be 3rd.

The one cancelled date could cost u2

Gnr have grossed 224 million in 2017, there's 2 more stadium gigs to add and also 25 arena gigs.

U2 have 247 million reported and 11 more to be reported so there gonna do around 310 I reckon

Think gnr will do 300 plus so it's going to be very close

I would expect the results for U2s Mexico/SA leg to be better than any other leg so far. The attendance and gross should be above the average, not by much, but I would expect closer to $7 million a show

A record 4 nights in Sao Paulo sees U2 play to a total of 280,000 fans.

Surely this enough to push them over the line of beating G&R. I should think this will also earn them a 'top boxscore' award nomination for 2018.

Theve won top boxscore for 2017. The Paris shows beat GNR in London and also the other act nominated,completely forgot who that is.

Will these South American dates count in the billboard award?im presuming we've passed the cut off point ?

Yes, the cut off is usually the first week of November.

So there's still time for them to declare the South American leg in then. Hopefully release the boxscores this week

some band called Phish, that i had not heard of before. Just had a look on Google and if the article was correct then apparently they played a 13 night residency at madison square garden! U2 played 8 sell-out nights at MSG on the I&E Tour to 150,000 people. If Phish get even half full shows, that'll be an attendance of 130,000. You would have to suspect that they would be nearing sell-outs or they wouldnt have done so many dates, so if we say 3/4 full thats 180,000 vs U2's 80,000 at Stade De France, even if for argments sake their ticket prices were half of U2's they still win this award with ease.

One wonders if the cancelled St Louis show will be a factor.

That would have made 4-5 mil I'm guessing.
