Guns N ‘Roses, Kiss, Slipknot, Korn and more make Pollstar’s list of top-grossing world tours of 2021

THE ROLLING STONES had the most lucrative tour in the world this year, according to Pollstar, the trade publication dedicated to covering the global concert industry. the “No filter” trek generated a total of $ 115.5 million in just 12 concerts. Other artists whose tours have landed in the top 100 include GUNS N ‘ROSES, TO KISS, NOOSE and MEGADETH / LAMB OF GOD.

The tourism industry was one of the first sectors affected by the coronavirus pandemic in early 2020, and it could be one of the last to recover. One of the problems has been the inability to bring foreign artists into the United States due to a long backlog of visa applications at American embassies and consulates.

Getting back on the road after the tourism industry was shut down due to COVID has been particularly rewarding for someone like GUNS N ‘ROSES guitarist Slash, who is known to spend most of his time playing live.

FIRE ARMS just did a tour of the United States, which was a lot of fun, “he told Radio Bob! in October. “It was great because you had all these crowds that were Great hungry for live concerts. So it was a very energetic tour. The same time, [we] also had a lot of intense restrictions. We had no type of aftershow guests – no guests at all – and we never left the hotel most of the time. And everyone really had to stay the course so that nobody got sick and had to postpone the tour and all that stuff. But we got away with it. So it was good. “
