With more than 23 million albums sold in the US, four Grammy nominations and three Top 40 hits, Kid Rock has been more fortunate than most.

Def Leppard, Chili Peppers and Tim McGraw Deliver Top Summer Concerts

It’s been nearly 25 years since Def Leppard hit their commercial peak with the $12-million-selling ‘Hysteria’ album, but they can still pack ‘em in on the road. In fact, the veteran rockers’ latest run of dates — a package tour with fellow classic rock legends Heart — was the top-grossing draw of the last three months.

They faced some pretty stiff competition for concert dollars, too; with an overall gross of $14.5 million, the Def Leppard/Heart lineup bested the latest tours from the Red Hot Chili Peppers (in second place with $9.2 million) and Tim McGraw (in third with $7.4 million).

Will Tim McGraw Star in Clint Eastwood’s ‘A Star Is Born’? [VIDEO]

Clint Eastwood isn’t exactly known for romances, either as an actor or as a director, so when word surfaced that he was planning to helm a remake of ‘A Star Is Born’ with Tim McGraw as a possible star, people naturally wanted to know more. We’ve heard plenty of the rumors as well, including the reported involvement (and subsequent un-involvement) of Beyoncé Knowles and Leonardo DiCaprio.

Little has been made official, however, so you can hardly blame the hosts of NBC’s ‘Today’ for trying to pry the scoop from McGraw during an interview.
