Rolling Stones and Guns N’ Roses Among Highest Grossing Tours In 2021
The pandemic brought by Covid-19 surely changed a lot of normality in people’s lifestyle. — One of these is the absence of live shows such as gigs and concerts which was really saddening for the music industry. But now, things are getting back to normal and the shows that we’ve missed going to are now slowly returning to life.
That’s why for this year, nothing stopped Pollstar from listing down the top grossing tours of 2021. Rock and Roll Hall of Fame legends Rolling Stones tops the list with their No Filter USA 2021 tour. The band postponed their tour on 2020 dates and rescheduled it which ran on September to November. It was the top grossing sales on tours for this year with over $115.5 million selling 516,624 tickets.
While the “Hella Mega” tour of Green Day, Fall Out Boy, and Weezer comes in third place following Harry Styles. The tour supposedly ran in 2020 but they’ve cancelled the shows in a lot of countries and rescheduled it for this year and 2022 making $67.3 million sales with 659,062 tickets sold.
Making the cut for the top 10 list is Guns N’ Roses taking the seventh place. The band made $47.3 million sales with 351,339 tickets sold for their upcoming summer tour on 2022 in parts of North and South America and in Europe and will continue at the end of the year in Australia and New Zealand.
Other artists that made the top 50 are KISS, Slipknot’s Knotfest Roadshow, Machine Gun Kelly, and Korn.
