Former OZZY OSBOURNE and current LAST IN LINE bassist Phil Soussan recently attended ‘The Stadium Tour’ gig in Sin City.
After attending CRÜE‘s September 9 concert, Soussan took to his social media to share a few photos from the show, and he included the following message (as per Metal Sludge):
“Went to see these guys yesterday at #allegiantstadium 2nd-row center was pretty awesome! #poison were literally nothing but a good time – Bret and CC were terrific. #defleppard of course we’re spectacular and pristine! Motley sadly not so much…never seen a place empty out so fast after only a few songs.”
According to Billboard, MÖTLEY CRÜE and DEF LEPPARD‘s “The Stadium Tour” sold 1.3 million tickets and earned $173.5 million, making it the biggest tour of either band’s career.
The biggest market on the tour, which featured support from POISON and JOAN JETT & THE BLACKHEARTS, was Boston, where the four acts performed two concerts at Fenway Park on August 5-6 and sold 64,000 tickets for total earnings of $9.3 million.
Four individual shows broke the $6 million threshold: Charlotte, North Carolina; Denver, Colorado; Glendale, Arizona; and Inglewood, California. Average nightly earnings hit $4.96 million.
“The Stadium Tour” averaged 37,520 tickets each night, drawing more than three times the audience that each band previously reached on their own.
