Motley Crue Set Local Record For Fastest Stadium Sellout
Tickets for "The Stadium Tour" featuring Motley Crue, Def Leppard, Poison and Joan Jett and the Blackhearts have only been on sale for a day and the tour package has already set a local record for being the fastest sellout in the history of Miller Park in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
The stadium, which is also the home of Major League Baseball's Milwaukee Brewers, has a reported capacity of 41,900 (per baseballstadiums.net). All available tickets have been snatched up, as Fox 6 Now reported, despite the sale starting at 10AM local time yesterday (Dec. 13). The time it took for the Aug. 18 stadium date to sell out was not divulged, although the Fox 6 Now report was published at 2PM with an update taking place two hours later.
Brewers President of Business Operations Rick Schlesinger said at the time the show was announced, "We’re pleased to welcome The Stadium Tour to Miller Park. This promises to be an unforgettable show headlined by four of the most successful bands in rock."
The 22-date trek will kick off on July 7as Motley Crue make their comeback four-and-a-half years afters playing the final stop on their farewell tour as 2015 drew to a close on a special New Year's Eve show dubbed "Crue Year's Eve."
Although the band signed a cessation of touring agreement which allegedly forbade them from ever touring again, that contract is null and void after being literally blown up in a promotional video. The overwhelming success of the band biopic The Dirt, which was released earlier this year on Netflix, lured in a new generation of fans who had never seen the group before, spurring the reunion.
