The Team: Agency: UTA (North America), ITB (Worldwide ex. North America), Manager: Fernando Lebeis, Team Brazil Management
Although reunion tours have become commonplace, no comeback was more head turning than the return of the “classic” Guns N’ Roses lineup for the “Not In This Lifetime… Tour.” Featuring original members Axl Rose, Slash, and Duff McKagan, the rejuvenated Guns N’ Roses headlined Coachella in 2016 and has since run around the world several times.
The band’s manager, Fernando Lebeis of Team Brazil Management, told Pollstar: “To see what we have accomplished in these last three years is truly something special.
“To watch these guys on stage together sharing what they started is truly an honor. 30 years of my life has been intertwined within GNR’s fabric.”
The tour wrapped with more than $638 million grossed, even after Axl Rose was forced to perform from Dave Grohl’s throne after suffering a broken leg.
Says UTA’s Ken Fermaglich, “Guns N’ Roses has accomplished some unbelievable milestones in just three short years.
“The band has made new memories for the fans and they are in a great place. Yet, we have only scratched the surface and there are even more exciting things on the horizon for GNR.”
