This Is How Much METALLICA Made At Recent Arena Shows (Spoiler: A Lot!)

So much moolah.

So much moolah.

It's always nice to check in to see how the big guns of metal are doing, and Metallica is doing better than ever.

Their massive stadium tour last year pulled in anywhere between four and six million dollars a night, grossing a total of approximately $50 million. Earlier this year, on their European arena tour, they were averaging over $2 million a night. Holy crap!

The latest Boxscore report has some updated numbers, and much like we saw in November, Metallica is pulling in over two million a night!

Because it was Vegas, they made out like gangbusters, with a slightly larger price.

It should be noted that these are gross returns, so they don't take into account the venue's cut, what you pay the crew, production costs, manager fees and all that. They also don't take into account all the extra profit that comes from merch sales. See remaining dates here.

Regardless, Metallica is a money-printing machine at the moment. Seriously, they make a lot of money. Even former bassist Jason Newsted has said that he never has to work again. Here are the band's remaining tour dates:
