Great numbers for Brazil and Mexico!

Colombia's number looks low, but it's pretty much in line with other recent concerts at that same stadium by Coldplay and the Rolling Stones. Stadium's capacity is right around 40,000.

Argentina and Chile seem low to me. Coldplay did 2 shows in La Plata last year, and had 97,000, compared to U2's 86,000.

Coldplay had 60,000 in Chile, the Stones and GnR had 62,000, U2 only had 53,000. Back in 2006, U2 also played this stadium and had 77,000 (end stage, not 360). I just wonder if Argentina and Chile failed to meet expectations...

I just don’t think they put a lot of tickets on sale this time around. Sales weren’t soft because most of these shows sold out instantly.

I did notice on the JT tour they didn't sell very many "side view" tickets, like most shows do. It seems like the capacity was lower than normal at most shows.

I just looked at the Wikipedia "Highest Grossing Tours" list and Guns and Roses appears to blow away JT30 by quite a wide margin.

Disappointing.

My guess is you are looking at this link

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o..._concert_tours

But that shows the gross for the ENTIRE tour.

We are talking about the top grossing tour of 2017.

The GnR tour was 2016 and 2017.
JT was only 2017.

That said, its a very good sign that U2 will beat GnR by quite a large margin for the biggest tour of 2017

Yeah theve grossed 430 million for the combined tour not 2017. Once it's finished it will be the 3rd highest grossing tour of all time I reckon

I added it up once and I'm sure they grossed 230 million up until now. Think there's 25 arena dates to add to the tally

And I think it's a safe assumption that if U2 wanted to be the bigger tour overall, they would have toured Europe heavily as well as paid a visit to Australia and New Zealand.

There's a good chance they will do it anyway. Guns and roses have to gross 3 million plus for the arena shows. A lot of their stadium shows in America grossed 3 million and that's stadium shows

Could guns and roses be after U2's top gross record??? There going to be pretty close with these dates now.

I'd say there's a decent chance.

But still not after the adjustment for inflation kicks in, 360 should still be on top I'd think.

Ugh, that would be so depressing. I think the saving grace might be that about 1/3 of those are festival appearances and they don’t count I believe towards a tour gross. Am I right?

Yeah your right they don't count. Looking at it there on 430 now (I think) they will struggle to reach 500 with the remaining arena dates. So there not going to get near on 300 million with a few stadium dates in Europe

Top Boxscore
Phish
Guns N' Roses
U2 -- WINNER

Seems like U2 won Top Boxscore . . . so who cares if Billboard thinks GNR is "top tour?"

my guess is that maybe U2 won the gross $$$, but by the end of the year GnR has a higher number of tickets sold. So they win "Top Draw"
Probably by small margin.
