Covid-19 is still here and one year later the situation is still the same with The Stadium Tour highly doubtful to happen.
As informed earlier, The Stadium Tour has sold out 75-80% of the tickets, and fans are eagerly waiting for the tour which seems highly possible that it may get postponed to 2022.
According to MOTLEY CRUE manager, both CRUE and DEF LEPPARD were going to earning millions per show.
“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.”
We also heard reports of Motley Crue asking for $3.25 Million per show.
A concert promoter in Iowa who claims to have been offered the opportunity to bid for a show says the tour’s agent quoted him as follows:
Mötley Crüe: $2 million
Def Leppard: $1 million
So if we look at the price, we are talking about MOTLEY CRUE losing close to $60-70 Million for the entire tour. DEF LEPPARD will lose $30-40 Million.
In total, these two bands are going to lose 110-120 Million dollars and that’s one hell of the money.
Now, you can debate about the insurance, but we will have to see how that works out. HELLFEST got canceled and the insurance company ain’t paying them at all.
