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.

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.

God, Phish is so horrible. The fact that they can play that many shows at MSG is absolutely mind-boggling and depressing.

The Joshua Tree Tour 2017 Boxscore Discussion

St. Louis show would have took it up to $321ish wouldn't it

GNR have reported $243 million so far in 2017. Theve got 25 arena dates to report yet. If they gross 3 million per show they will top u2

Gun and roses will top it I think, I reckon they will do around the 330 mark so the St. Louis show won't make any difference

Saying that just checking GNR boxscores and their only getting 3 milllion for alot of stadium shows

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Not_...fetime..._Tour

It's going to be very close

I think U2 is gonna pull it off. From what I remember looking a few weeks ago, it seemed that GnR was gonna do about 1.5 million to 1.75 million per arena show. That would bring them only about 40 more million. Well off the mark to surpass U2.

The Joshua Tree Tour 2017 Boxscore Discussion

Just noticed the average attendance on the Joshua tree tour is 53,198. That's huge only the 360 tour beats it for the average attendance. So u2 have 1 and 2 in the average attendance record. The stones are 3rd with 51,103.

If they had done the usual 110 date with this tour they would have been looking at around $700 million gross. Huge tour for them again. 12 highest grossing tour of all time off only 51 dates

Once all the SA box scores come in, you will see that average go up. I would bet the SA leg averaged close to 70k a show.

Didn't realise they hadn't been accounted for, thought with the 316 million figure being released that those boxscores had come out. It will defo go up then

It is all inclusive. I didn’t realize the 53k was based off of that info, I thought it was off of what was reported by Boxscore so far, which currently excludes SA.

Just looked on wiki and they have nothing for the South American shows but an average of 53k so it looks like that will definitely go up

GNR on $243m plus say $7m from their two shows in Mexico = $250m
They therefore need to get $66m+ from 25 arena shows, or to put it another way $2.64m per show. I dont think they can average that amount from 20,000 capacity arenas even with an average higher ticket price than their stadium shows. I think U2 can just about do it, just. The cancelled show would have guarenteed it though.
