News - Def Leppard/Heart On Top 200 North American Tours List

Sunday, 8th January 2012 | 


The Def Leppard/Heart 2011 US tour has been included on the Pollstar Top 200 North American tours of 2011 list.

According to the figures the 45 North American shows grossed 19.2 million dollars with an average attendance of 8,364. UK tour mates Motley Crue came in at number 41 with 21.1 million dollars but with a lower average attendance of 7,397.

This follows on from the Billboard Hot Tour listing from October 2011 which said the band had earned 14 million dollars from the last 32 US shows. Those figures also showed the attendance over those shows was 278,392 out of a possible 558,465.

Figures which were disputed by guitarist Vivian Campbell but seem to have also been used by Pollstar bringing the total up to 45 shows from 32 - 13 more shows making the total gross 19 million. Read Vivian's facebook quote below. Looking at the new figures for the full 45 shows it would appear Vivian was referring to this total.
