The decision to pit Sheffield rockers Def Leppard against Motley Crüe seemed a strange one from the offing. The election to put the latter on first seemed downright ludicrous.
Why was it ludicrous? We’ll get to that in a little bit. As for why it seemed strange, it shouldn’t be too difficult to fathom. Though Leppard are veterans of the rock game, their live set is crucially devoid of the bombast, energy or attitude their counterparts so readily disseminate.
The Top 20 Concert Tours ranks artists by average box office gross per city and includes the average ticket price for shows in North America. The previous week’s ranking is in parentheses.
