Guns N’ Roses have proven without a doubt that they are still one of the biggest bands in the universe, selling a whopping 353,000 tickets during their recent tour of Australia and New Zealand.
The band were also the first international act to sell out the MCG, with more than 74,000 tickets sold in Melbourne alone. Sydney saw 85,000 people watch the band over two nights.
Australian fans have waited for over two decades to see Slash, Axl and Duff reunited, with the violate nature of their relationship no doubt front of mind for many fans – this could very well be the last time Australia will ever see this lineup working together somewhat harmoniously.
Paul Dainty, CEO of TEG Dainty, were shocked the band sold so many tickets.
“Guns N’ Roses has a huge fan base in Australia, but I would say it’s now bigger than ever after this fabulous tour,” said Dainty. “Every night the band delivered its trademark sound and performance. I can’t speak highly enough of their professionalism and passion. We would love to see them back soon.”
