Guns N’ Roses’ 2017 Tour sold more than 1 million tickets in one day

Guns N’ Roses’ U.K., European and Canadian dates for their continued 2017 Not in This Lifetime Tour sold more than 1 million tickets in a single day, after going on sale Friday (Dec. 9).

Live Nation announced the news, ahead of the U.S. tour dates going on sale Saturday. The Not in This Lifetime Tour has now sold more than 3 million tickets in 2016, making it the year’s most successful rock tour. In September it was reported that the band’s reunion tour has already grossed £90million, making it the highest-grossing of the year to date in North America. Their run of stadium shows were attended by over a million fans in the US and Canada.

Demand was so high for tickets on Friday according to Live Nation, that an extra date was added at London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in June next year.

The veteran rock band announced the reunion of their classic line-up earlier this year and have already played a host of dates across North America together since. They also announced dates across Europe, Japan, Thailand, Australia, New Zealand and Dubai for next year.
