The Stadium Tour earned a whopping $173.5 million this summer

The bill, headlined by Mötley Crüe and Def Leppard, sold approximately 1.3 million tickets

The Stadium Tour is in the books, and according to a report in Billboard, the trek, headlined by Mötley Crüe and Def Leppard and also featuring Poison, Joan Jett and Classless Act, sold approximately 1.3 million tickets across 36 dates, earning a whopping $173.5 million in the process.

The highest-grossing stop was a two-night stint at Boston’s Fenway Park, which took in $9.3 million across 64,000 tickets sold. Four other dates – Charlotte on June 28, Denver on July 21, Glendale, Arizona on August 25 and Inglewood, California on August 27 – earned more than $6 million in one day.

The average earning across the 36 dates was $4.96 million.

And the bands are far from done. There have already been rumors circulating of a Def Leppard/Mötley Crüe bill heading overseas, and in a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, Nikki Sixx said that there’s more stadium shows for Mötley on the horizon, with “another 120 next year and the year after that.”
