I have to admit I didn't think they would make it past the first few shows. Good for them!
Love to see what they are each brining home after this tour is over.
I saw this current tour twice. They rocked both times.
I'm also shocked they're still going
They backed up 2 brinks trucks each to axel, duff, and slash's house. It wasn't even a fight.
So, what's the inside scoop, do they still hate each other, or do they just get along well enough to tour together again? Insane how much money they've left on the table all these years, because of the squabbles.
everyone I know that's seen this show has been impressed.
The three "core" members of the current GUNS N' ROSES reunion lineup — Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan — will evenly split profits from the band's upcoming North American tour, according to Page Six. The three originals are also the only band members whose names are being featured in advertising for the tour, with additional members Richard Fortus, Frank Ferrer, Dizzy Reed and Melissa Reese not highlighted.
According to The Pulse Of Radio, the four non-core members are probably being paid a salary for the live shows. Axl Rose, who owns the GN'R brand, had all the members of the previous GUNS lineup, which included no founding members but him, under salary.
Slash, who left the group in 1996, said in 2007 that he quit after Rose had other members sign contracts "like we were defined as hired hands."
GUNS N' ROSES will play the first of two shows at Las Vegas' new T-Mobile Arena on Friday night (April 8). The band will also play two gigs in Mexico City in addition to the Vegas and Coachella dates, before launching a stadium trek this summer.
The band is getting a reported $8 million for its two appearances at California's Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival this month and an average of $2.75 million per show on the tour.
By comparison, Rose's most recent pre-reunion lineup of GUNS N' ROSES was getting somewhere between $350,000 and $500,000 per show, according to Billboard's industry sources.

Same here. Went to DC to see Axl front AC/DC. Fucker kicked ass.
I highly recommend his collectors edition in stores now..
They're getting along, joking around. Funny clip of Axl sneaking behind Slash and tickling him during a solo.
I saw them in Phoenix and the kicked ass. Axl was running around the stage like a mad man. I was very surprised.
Then after South America >>> Japan, Aus, and N.Z. Huge payday.
Axl may have grown up, or benefitted from therapy. He's been showing up on time and everything. Also I guess he spent a shitload of the money he originally made and wants to maintain a high-dollar lifestyle.
Just from the one show at Coachella they made a million each. This has to be the highest grossing tour in a long long time.
Good for them man, its great to see
