Earnings & Attendance: GUNS N ROSES Gross More Money in 3 Months Than We'll Ever See In Our Lifetime

Posted by on October 20, 2017 at 12:37 pm Follow on Twitter | Follow on Instagram

How much money does a band make on the road? Billboard hopes to answer that question, somewhat, by providing gross sale reports in their weekly Boxscore report. We like to check in every once in a while to see how metal bands are doing. Keep in mind, these are gross sales, meaning this is before the venue, promoter, etc. get the cut. This doesn't mean the band gets the entire piece of the pie and their profits vary based on the deals they make. As always, thanks to ThePRP for the numbers. Check out our previous Earnings & Attendance Reports.
