Axl Rose And Slash’s Net Worth After The Guns N’ Roses Tour Grossing $47 Million
Since their inception in 1985, Guns N’ Roses have amassed large crowds and enjoyed many successful tours. Although the relationship between the band members has been rocky over the years, and their album catalog is relatively short, the act has nonetheless possessed a significant accumulation of wealth, with the outstanding contribution of their glorious live performances.
While GNR’s touring journey started with The Early Days of Guns N’ Roses, which took place between 1985 and 1987, the following Appetite for Destruction Tour and Use Your Illusion Tour came after the band’s breakthrough success. Use Your Illusion Tour became one of the longest concert tours in rock history, with 194 shows in total. After three more tours between 2001 and 2014, Guns N’ Roses embarked on Not in This Lifetime… Tour in 2016.
The extensive journey ended in November 2019 and brought great financial success to the band members by being the third-highest-grossing concert tour of all time, with a profit of $584.2 million. Encouraged by the spectacular triumph of the Not in This Lifetime… Tour, the band decided to hit the road one more time with the Guns N’ Roses 2020 Tour. The ongoing concert tour has brought an income of $47.3 million so far, constantly adding to the net worth of Axl Rose and Slash.
How Much Is Axl Rose’s Net Worth?
As Guns N’ Roses is still actively touring, the band members greatly profit from the sold-out concerts. Their ongoing Guns N’ Roses 2020 Tour occupies the seventh place in the list of the highest-grossing tours of 2021, as reported by Forbes. As the quintessential leader of the band, Axl Rose is the wealthiest band member, with an estimated net worth of $200 million.
The number is not surprising considering GNR’s solid place in the rock scene starting from the late 1980s and Axl Rose’s dominant role. Although most of the singer’s earnings have come from his efforts with GNR, he has also been involved in several other musical projects over the years. Furthermore, Rose owns a mansion in Malibu, California, which he bought for $3.6 million in 1992. The other prominent Guns N’ Roses member Slash’s net worth, on the other hand, is almost half of Axl’s.
How Much Is Slash’s Net Worth?
Guns N’ Roses lead guitarist Slash has contributed significantly to the band’s original sound with his widely-acclaimed signature guitar playing. Thanks to GNR’s high-grossing tours and other ventures, the musician holds a net worth of $90 million, making him the second wealthiest member of the band. When he left Guns N’ Roses in 1996, he co-founded the supergroup Velvet Revolver and released two studio albums.
Later before returning to GNR in 2016, the guitarist also pursued a solo career, releasing albums under the name Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators. He also collaborated with many other notable artists as a session player. In addition to a prolific music career, Slash pursued other businesses like acting and took small parts in numerous films and TV series, adding to his wealth.
Besides his interest in acting, the musician also published an autobiographical book named ‘Slash’ in 2007. As a versatile artist, Slash used to design logos and artwork for his other bands before Guns N’ Roses. He purchased a home in the hills of Sherman Oaks for $7.3 million, which he sold in 2017 for $8.7 million. His continuous endeavors with Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators and the ongoing GNR tour keep adding to the guitarist’s wealth.
