Tom Petty's Last Tour Sold 637,671 Tickets Across 44 Shows, Earned $61 Million

Recommended Posts

Wow...

More than 49,000 saw Petty at this final shows at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles.

The late rock legend Tom Petty wrapped his 40th anniversary tour with the Heartbreakers at the Hollywood Bowl in late September, just days before his untimely death on Oct. 2. His final stand of three concerts at the Los Angeles amphitheater — recently reported to Billboard Boxscore — capped a five-month trek through 36 North American cities that grossed more than $61 million during its run. 

The tour commemorating the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame member’s four-decade career drew a total of 637,671 fans to 44 headlining performances at arenas, amphitheaters and stadiums in the U.S. and Canada. It debuted on April 20 with a crowd of 12,893 at Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City.

The Hollywood Bowl stint was ultimately the highest-grossing date on the jaunt, with a $5.3 million take from 49,217 sold seats on Sept. 21, 22 and 25. The only other three-show run was in Berkeley, California, in late August at the Hearst Greek Theatre.

 61 million gross is really miss leading (it sounds like tom became the artist from  last dj) but that's tickets sold impressive, but imagine how much it cost to produce that tour pay everyone especially those who have been with you for 40 years. I'm sure tom made a lot of money but it was no where near that amount.

Interesting. That comes out to $95.66 in average revenue per ticket sold. That 61 million has to pay for marketing, the band, hotels, crew, transportation, food, stage, lighting, equipment, taxes, etc. I'd be curious to know what the band made when all is said and done.

Plus each venue gets a huge cut.
