Def Leppard/Journey tour raking in a LOT of cash.

Back in May, Def Leppard and Journey were gearing up to launch their summer tour, and Leppard frontman Joe Elliot said at the time, "This tour is going to be a blast! We've toured together before and it was massive. This time it's going to be even bigger and better!"

Well, he was right on the money. A lot of freaking money.

The Def Leppard and Journey co-headlining tour of North America has topped $50 million in revenue just past the halfway mark of the six-month trek, according to Pollstar.

They report that the veteran rockers have played to more than half a million fans through 33 shows on the 58-city run since launching the series in Hartford, CT on May 21.

The tour is a mixed schedule of arena and stadium concerts, the top box office gross so far is from their July 21 show at Denver's Coors Field, where they earned $3.8 million in sales from a sellout crowd of 44,928.
