Find out how much Aerosmith, Slash, Failure and more made on the road

Posted by on August 26, 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.

This time around, we will revisit the numbers of bands we’ve seen before like Alice Cooper or Motley Crue because, the fact that they did good on a certain date, doesn’t mean they will do as good on the next stop of the same tour (they did but that’s not the point here) and we will see some big names I’m sure you’ve been curious to know how if they need a part-time job at 7-11 to survive. You can finally see if Slash really needs that rumored Guns N’ Roses reunion to make a quick buck or if he does well on his own. These are the bands that can feed the poor in third-world countries if they wanted to:

Slash does really good on his own but imagine how much a G N’R reunion would make? they would put those Aerosmith numbers to shame and make it look like pocket change. It also warms my heart to see people still support some of the classics like Lynyrd Skynyrd; without them, you wouldn’t be able to yell “Free Bird” at every show you attend.
