maidenliveIf 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.

No one should be surprised to see that every single date Iron Maiden played was sold out and they met their optimum budget. Maiden is definitely a band that would be able to get away charging more than what they do and still sell out arenas like they are doing now but, gladly for us broke people, they keep it a reasonable price. In fact, all these shows did fairly well and were also close to sell out, particularly in Boston which now I assume are huge metalcore fans. Good job, Boston!
