Def Leppard and Journey tour played to over 1 million fans

The recently-completed co-headlining tour of North America by Def Leppard and Journey played to more than 1 million fans on the continent.

Billboard reports the extensive six-month, 58-date series sold 1,003,198 tickets to earn a total box office revenue of $97.1 million.

The biggest single-show revenue was the fourth and final leg’s opener – a September 21 stop at AT&T Park in San Francisco, CA – which grossed $3.9 million.

The biggest venue on the run’s 10-show stadium series was a June 1 gig at Toronto’s Rogers Centre, with 45,083 tickets available for sale.

Def Leppard and Journey wrapped up the North American run with a two-night engagement at the Forum in Inglewood, CA on October 6-7.

The groups’ previous joint tour in 2006 took in gross revenue of $38 million over 72 dates.

Def Leppard were recently named as one of 15 nominees under consideration for induction into the 2019 Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame; among the other artists recognized are Stevie Nicks, Radiohead, Rage Against The Machine and Todd Rundgren.

On November 30, the UK rockers will release a pair of projects, including a greatest-hits collection entitled "The Story So Far - The Best Of Def Leppard" and a 10-disc limited-edition vinyl box set called "Hysteria: The Singles."
