Earnings & Attendance

Earnings & Attendance for TOOL, A PERFECT CIRCLE, MEGADETH, MASTODON, AVENGED SEVENFOLD, etc.

Posted by on September 22, 2017 at 4:20 pm

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. As always, thanks to ThePRP for the numbers. Check out our previous Earnings & Attendance Reports.

If you're wondering why Tool is still touring and not working on their new album, just look at these sales figures.

I guess it's not too shocking that Tool highly outdraws and out-earns A Perfect Circle.

Gross Sales: $301,560

Mastodon with respectable numbers.

Date: Jun. 25th, 2017
Gross Sales: $100,833

Wow, I'm shocked Mastodon outdraws Megadeth in Boston, at least in this comparison.

Avenged Sevenfold played this as an off-date on their Metallica tour, but that certainly looks like a disappointing turnout.

Date: Sept. 14th, 2017
Gross Sales: $59,400

Def Leppard are not quite metal (although if you ask somebody over 35, they would politely disagree) but one thing you cannot knock is that their fanbase is as strong as ever and willing to spend big bucks to see them.
