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, and we’ve summarized them here for you.

This week we have a very short list of bands you may be interested on knowing their finances. As we go deeper into the year, we’re hoping to get more numbers of some of the acts gearing up to tour across the world. It may still take a while as we’re getting closer to the summer, which means a lot of bands will be busy playing in the hundreds of European festivals taking place within the next few months. These are the bands that pay valet parking instead of spending 45 min looking for an open spot:

Once again, we get to see Muse leading the top of the list with $3M in gross sales for a single weekend in Manchester. Deftones aren’t doing bad either, considering the rather steep prices for their tickets. On the other side of the coin, Apocalyptica’s last North American tour with 10 Years seemed to be doing fine but that wasn’t entirely the case during their stop in Tampa based on those numbers. They aren’t too bad considering they still sold $13k worth of tickets with less than half of their attendance, but it’s surprising to see them with such a slim attendance.
