Motley Crue and Def Leppard are raking in big bucks with their ‘Stadium Tour’

Motley Crue and Def Leppard’s long awaited North American “Stadium Tour” is proving to pull in some big bucks for the rockers. As the band nears the final dates of the trek, returns show the tour grossed around $5 million per show in August. How massive is that?

The tour kicked off in June and also features support from Poison, Joan Jett and Classless Act. The numbers comes from Pollstar, a live industry trade publication.

According to Pollstar’s LIVE75 chart, which ranks current tours by average tickets sold over the last 30 days, the Crue and Def Leppard’s Stadium Tour hit 14 cities in August, including Boston, Toronto, New York State, Pittsburgh, Minneapolis, Indianapolis, Seattle and beyond. The trek sold an average of 36,513 tickets each night and pulled in an average gross of $4,962,861, according to Pollstar. The only tours that did better than Motley Crue and Def Leppard were Ed Sheeran, Coldplay and Red Hot Chili Peppers.

The Stadium Tour was postponed for two years due to the pandemic and finally set off in Atlanta in June. It didn’t go smoothly from the start, as Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee announced at the first show in that he’d broken his ribs and would only perform a few songs. He was able to take on the whole set again on June 28 in Charlotte, North Carolina. Check out remaining dates for Stadium Tour dates below.
