BLACK SABBATH Made How Much in NYC? Who Draws Better: DREAM THEATER or MEGADETH? All Is Answered in Earnings and Attendance

Posted by on June 26, 2014 at 4:40 pm

Check out our previous Earnings & Attendance Reports.

How much money does a band make on the road? Billboard hopes to answer that question, somewhat, by providing gross sale reports in their weekly Boxscore report. We like to check in every once in a while to see how metal bands are doing. Keep in mind, these are gross sales, meaning this is before the venue, promoter, etc. get the cut. This doesn't mean the band gets the entire piece of the pie and their profits vary based on the deals they make.
