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.
