WWE (WWE: Quote) late Sunday said WrestleMania 29 became the highest grossing live event in its history and broke the record for MetLife Stadium's highest grossing entertainment event.
WWE's annual pop-culture extravaganza grossed $12.3 million with 80,676 fans from all 50 states and 34 countries converging on MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. The event is broadcast around the world on pay-per-view in over 100 countries and 20 languages.
The previous MetLife Stadium record for an entertainment event's gross revenue was a U2 concert on July 20, 2011, which grossed $8.9 million. This is the fourth consecutive year that WWE broke the host venue's record for the highest-grossing entertainment event.
