Motley Crue has reunited and fans are super stoked.
With the official confirmation out, fans are waiting for ticket details.
This has lead to a massive discussion on social media on what made CRUE come out of retirement. This was answered by their manager Allen Kovac.
He talked about the problems faced by him to manage them.
“What changed everything was the board of directors/shareholders meetings where we get together twice a year and we’d be able to communicate and get over the challenges. Do I think it would have worked without it? Absolutely not.”
Asked about insurance contracts connected to the tour, Kovac says:
“They’ve never canceled a show. If you’ve never canceled a show, you have a Triple-A insurance rating.”
“You start calculating the grosses for 50,000 people a night, it’s a lot of money. In the millions.”
“The acts can get somewhere between 50 and 60 percent of the gross.”
It is unclear how much “The Stadium Tour” can earn, but for comparison’s sake, Motley Crue grossed $42.1 million and Def Leppard grossed $54 million on their respective tours in 2015.
Figuring 20,000 cars in a stadium parking lot at $50 a pop, “you’re talking about a million dollars before you even walk into the stadium.”
