Motley Crue and Def Leppard’s ‘Stadium Tour’ tops $170 Million in earnings

Motley Crue and Def Leppard’s North American ‘Stadium Tour’ earned more than $170 million, according to a new report by Billboard.

The 36-city trek — also featuring Poison and Joan Jett & The Blackhearts — sold 1.3 million tickets, earning $173.5 million in revenue at the box office and making it the biggest tour of both Motley Crue’s and Def Leppard’s careers. The Stadium Tour averaged 37,520 tickets each night, drawing more than three times the audience that each band previously reached on their own.

Motley Crue reunited for the Stadium Tour following a “farewell tour” that ended in 2015, while Def Leppard were on the road in support of their latest album, “Diamond Star Halos”.  Both bands have hinted that the tour *may* continue in 2023.
