Posted by on July 22, 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 week, we bring some of your usual touring bands from big names to smaller acts but we also have the numbers for the annual Coachella Valley Music and Art Festival, which we’re going to put at the bottom so you look at the embarrassing amounts of money the rest of the bunch made.
