Motley Crue and Def Leppard tour has sold more than 1 million tickets

The Motley Crue/Def Leppard stadium tour continues to make headlines months before the June 21 launch in San Antonio, TX.

According to Billboard, the series – which also includes Poison and Joan Jett & The Blackhearts – has already sold more than one million tickets, with another $5 million generated from VIP seats.

The tour saw the fastest sellout in Milwaukee’s Miller Park history, with additional shows selling out instantly in Atlanta, Seattle, Charlotte, Dallas, Pittsburgh, Detroit, Chicago and Denver.

"One band [Def Leppard] was inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame and another [Motley Crue] has one of the biggest rock books ever that was turned into a film and the film was seen by tens of millions,” says Crue manager Allen Kovac. “We knew co-headlining would dramatically lift the ticket sales."

The stadium tour sold more 700,000 tickets over its first weekend of sales in December to earn gross box office receipts of over $90 million.

“The word on the street was that fans were overly excited about this stadium tour even before it was announced,” says Joe Elliott of Def Leppard. “Well it’s out there now & it keeps getting bigger & bigger ... this is going to be a MONSTER of a tour!”

“Little did we know that making The Dirt movie would lead us to this exciting new place touring stadiums with our friends in Def Leppard,” adds Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx. “We are beyond excited for this tour to begin.”
