Promoter Has Some Surprising Picks
Guns N’ Roses booking agent Rod MacSween gave a recent interview to Music Week where he talked about the success of the band’s ‘Not in This Lifetime Tour’ where he also highlighted some of the best shows of the tour in his opinion. He said:
Beginning in April 2016 the tour, which reunited original members Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan, was the second highest grossing of 2017 and has become the fourth highest grossing of all-time, generating $480.9 million (£363m) from 125 shows to date, according to Pollstar.
Speaking in the new issue of Music Week, which is dedicated to all things rock, ITB’s Rod MacSween said: “The whole world tour has been a spectacular success. Some highlights were the two sold out Olympic Stadium shows in London last year, playing the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) in Australia and the passionate crowds in South America.”
MacSween, who guides the band’s live career outside North America, described public demand to see the reformed line-up as “voracious”, adding: “The strategy has been to route with care, to play some new markets and always plan ahead.”
On what to expect from their Download slot, MacSween said: “The highest level of entertainment. Go see them to find out!”
GNR’s US agent, UTA’s Ken Fermaglich, added: “The single most important overarching strategy for us has been doing whatever we can to ensure that people understand this is not a legacy act, it is a vibrant band that is contemporary to lots of other bands right now.”
