A Stadium Tour Success Story

Motley Crue, Def Leppard and company pulled in over $173 million over the summer tour

It looks like Joe Elliott, Nikki Sixx and co. won't be going hungry any time soon, as Vince Neil confirms that Motley Crue's touring days are far from over. Motley Crue and Def Leppard's Stadium Tour raked in $173 million in concert ticket sales over the summer, according to a feature in Billboard Magazine Over the course of 36 nights – which kicked off at Truist Park in Atlanta, GA on June 16, and climaxed at the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas on September 9 – 1.3 million tickets were sold, with an average of 37,520 fans attending each show. The numbers represent a considerable success for both bands, whose commercial peaks in the 1980s and 1990s were supported by shows in 10-11,000 seat arenas. By the turn of the century both bands were attracting crowds half that size, and Motley Crue's so-called Final Tour of 2014-2015 grossed $44.3 million across 158 shows.
