Not in this lifetime. Guns will never be as big as it was no matter who is in the band.

Slash's average attendance is around 1,000 people. Axl's is around 4,000 people. The other 3 can be counted in the hundreds. Add all 5 together, subtract the half that go see more than 1, and tell me how many arenas that sells out.

There would be people from all over the world trying to book tickets to the first leg of the tour. Slash's presence in GNR would be enough for people to go through the trouble and spend the money to get out to see it happen. It's just the fact of so many people never seeing them together, and the potential of it falling apart being high that the demand for tickets would be bigger than some people think.

People who already saw GNR back in the day wouldn't care as much as the people who never saw them. They'd only care if the band still has it in them to kick ass, and I guarantee their memories of the shows back then would loom large than the reality of seeing a bunch of 50-somethings do a nostalgia show for them. But for the ones who never saw them? It's not nostalgia if they never got to experience it.

Except for South America, they will probably not sell out stadiums, but will arena''s.

With the voice and performance of Axl now, a new tour only reason would be for more teasing.

Definitely, even if Axl sounded shit or Slash can't play anymore.
They are fucking legends.

I've seen slash 9 times and the only show that had less then 2000 people was the music week show in Toronto. But that venue only held 900 people. The last show I saw he sold about 9000 tickets and this is in a city of about 300k. But your axl math is about right as I've seen him 7 times and most shows were about 5k attendance. With one being about 9k and one being 14k

I'd think they would be able to fill arenas across the states and stadiums in the rest of the world v

Seen GNR 8 times, Seen Slash 11 times

They didn't even completely sell out all of their stadium dates when they toured with Metallica in '92. Metallica opened in Denver at Mile High, and thousands left before Guns even started. You guys can dream about selling out stadiums all you want, but GNR on their own never could do that in the USA, and most likely never will. They could probably sell out stadiums in Brazil, but not anywhere else, even if Slash, Axl, Steven, Duff, Izzy, Jesus Christ and Jimi Hendrix were on stage.

I think sales would be consistently better, but not enough to suddenly start selling out stadiums. Even if they had a new, acclaimed album to promote, they would still never reach the same success. Ticket sales would be very strong though. Any half filled arenas would probably turn to three quarter filled to sold out. I have no doubt they'd easily sell out most arenas in big North American markets, and would probably be able to do multiple nights at some in markets like the UK and Europe. South America they could probably do stadiums though.
