The blockbuster, double-header tour by Journey and Def Leppard played to more than one million people, as confirmed by figures reported to Billboard Boxscore. The recently-completed fourth and final leg of the bands’ shared North American tour recorded ticket sales of $17.5 million, part of total takings for the entire itinerary of $97.1 million, from 1,003,198 tickets sold.

The single biggest show on the tour was the opening date of the fourth leg, which took place on 21 September at the 44,000 capacity AT&T Park in San Francisco and also starred Foreigner. According to deflepparduk.com, this was the band’s first performance in the city since 2002, during the X/Ten world tour. The September show grossed $3.9 million.

The tour as a whole ran to 58 dates, reports Billboard, including two Canadian shows in Toronto and Vancouver. Ten of these were stadium dates, which also featured guests Peter Frampton, the Pretenders and Cheap Trick. The biggest venue on the schedule was Rogers Centre in Toronto, which houses 45,083.

As the tour ended, Leppard’s Twitter account described the tour as “one crazy fun year rocking across North America! A huge thank you to each and every fan for supporting us, it’s been a great ride with @journeymusicofficial and our awesome crew. Until next time.”

As reported by uDiscover Music in August, Def Leppard worked on material for their next album while on the trek. The tour ended with a two-night stint at the Forum in Inglewood, California on 6-7 October. Leppard have subsequently played two nights in Honululu, Hawaii, concluding last night (20). “We have a very strong connection,” the band’s Phil Collen told the local Star Advertiser. “I’m very protective of my brothers. We’ve been through so much together.”

As we also noted recently, Leppard have been named among the nominees on the “long list” of artists for potential induction into the 2019 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

At least one of the bands is working on new material. Meanwhile the members in the other band spent their free time highlighting bible passages, playing golf, or being a narcissistic social media slut.

Yeah - my thoughts exactly. The Leps are headlining festivals, onto their next tour and writing new music. Playing in front of a million people could be a launching pad for the next stage. Take the year off and write a new album and release it next fall.
