Find out how much AC/DC, Animals as Leaders, Vans Warped Tour and more made on the road

Posted by on September 3, 2015

If you keep wondering how much your favorite bands make when they head out on the road, Billboard‘s Boxscore released their latest batch of earnings and attendance from many artists, including rock and metal ones, and we’ve summarized them here for you.

Summer is leaving us and many bands are taking a break from their tours in Europe or even in the US, before booming back this fall as usual so we don’t have many bands this week. We still found some bands you may find interesting to know how they did on tour by taking in consideration other factors. These are the tour packages that paid their rents on time:


Artist: AC/DC & Vintage Trouble
Venue: Quebec City, QC – Plaines d’Abraham
Date: Aug. 28th, 2015
Gross Sales: $4,047,480
Attendance/Capacity: 48,588 / 58,000

Venue: Orlando, FL – Orlando Citrus Bowl Stadium
Date: Jul. 05th, 2015

It’s no surprise the success AC/DC has at every city they stop by during their tours but Quebec City isn’t that big of a city and still drawing almost 50k people is really impressive. Vans Warped Tour numbers seem very slim compared to what they did a few days after that date in Florida, even though FL is prominently ignored when routing a tour by many bands, but the funny thing is that the date is around the time Kevin Lyman, who also organizes the Warped tour, called metal “gray, bald and fat.” Could there by a co-relation? who knows. Between the Buried and Me and the rest did amazingly in Montreal, despite the fact that Heavy MTL was happening 2 days after so good on you, boys!. And lastly, we keep shoving Motley Crue in our lists to prove that when you call your tour “The Final Tour” you are bound to make half-a-million dollars on a single night.
