Motley Crue and Def Leppard make big money with their ‘Stadium Tour’

Motley Crue and Def Leppard’s long-awaited North American “Stadium Tour” is proving to bring rockers big money. As the band nears the final dates of the trek, reports show the tour grossed around $5 million per show in August. How massive is it?

The tour kicked off in June and also includes support from Poison, Joan Jett and Classless Act. The figures come from Pollstar, a live industry trade publication.

According Pollstar LIVE75 Chart, which ranks current tours by the average number of tickets sold over the past 30 days, Crue and Def Leppard’s stadium tour hit 14 cities in August, including Boston, Toronto, New York, Pittsburgh, Minneapolis, Indianapolis, Seattle and beyond. The trek sold an average of 36,513 tickets each night and grossed an average 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 kicked off in Atlanta in June. It didn’t go smoothly from the start, as announced by Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee on the first show in that he had broken his ribs and would only perform a few songs. He was able to take over the entire set on June 28 in Charlotte, North Carolina. Check the remaining dates for the stadium tour dates below.
