Mötley Crüe charges over $3 million per show on reunion tour

Last week, Mötley Crüe broke their retirement contract by revealing that in 2020 they will tour, joining bands Def Leppard and Poison. However, so far, no date has been announced.


According to US radio station KRNA, a local promoter reported that Mötley Crüe is charging more than $ 3 million for each show performed during the tour.

The amount would be divided as follows:

  • Mötley Crüe: $ 2 million
  • Def Leppard: $ 1 Million
  • Poison: $ 250,000

Again, it’s $ 3 million / show. That is, if the average ticket price was $ 70, at least 46,000 people would be needed to break even.

In addition, another team member said the goal is to sell 60,000 tickets per presentation, accumulating gross revenue of $ 4.5 million, also per presentation. In this case, the average ticket price would be US $ 75.

The Mötley Crüe dates weren’t announced yet and this will happen probably this year so that the tickets can be available.

Def Leppard has no concerts booked until now for 2020, what would really make the possibility easy to come true. And the band already toured with Poison in 2017, that is the other band that Rolling Stone said that would be on these concerts.

Recently, Bret Michaels, Poison’s frontman said that he wants to record a new album with the band and tour in 2020.
