Apart from Festivals(Rio) and Co Touring(Metallica).

I'm not 100% sure but I believe American Figures Peaked in 1992 and Declined through out 1993 in North America.

Is there anyway of getting Attendance Figures of the Use Your Illusion Tour Online??

Gnrontour

Santiago 92 was 70k.... that was big.

Buenos Aires 92 n 93 was very big too!

That's normal for bands, btw.  They generally tour in cycles and downsize as it goes on, particularly if it's a multi-year tour. 

GnR went from touring stadiums in '92 as a co-headliner to playing arenas solo in '93. They did the same thing in 2016 (stadiums as the headliner) to arenas in 2017 (using the US as an example for both).

I think they played Joe Robbie Stadium in Miami on NYE in 1991. That would be a stadium date.

That is the only North American Stadium solo date I've Noticed too. I Guess it would have been the Largest Attendence for GnR in North America on the UYI Tour.

I wonder why they never played more Stadium Solo Dates in North America? We all know They Could Have. The previous year Depeche Mode were Doing Stadiums Solo in North America.

I might be wrong, but I believe Alan Niven once said in Magazine/Radio Interview that GnR could have Done a Multi Stadium Tour in 1989 if they Wanted too.

It Is Funny because GnR were selling out Stadiums Everywhere Else in the World.

I know It's all in the past now. It's just a Curious Observation of GnRs Amazing Story.

It’s always been a challenge for any band to sale out stadium gigs in the US. The single solo show was probably because it was a NYE show. I know U2 played stadium in the US during the early 90’s. I don’t think GNR could sale stadium gigs in 1991 or 1993. Imagine the demand for Metallica/GNR tour today.
