Find out how much Van Halen, Soilwork, Godflesh and more made on the road

Posted by on November 25, 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 w’ve summarized them here for you.

There aren’t that many new bands to report on that we haven’t seen this week but it’s always fun to see how some of these bands do when the touring season is happening in North America. With the holidays coming, it gets a little tricky for some of the touring bands to pull off good numbers when they’re on the road here but most of them do fairly well, thanks to those loyal fans or people who really hate spending time with their families this season. These are the bands getting an amazing thanksgiving dinner because they can afford it:

Aside from Amaranthe and Butcher Babies, who totally killed their show in Montreal earlier this month, none of the bands actually sold out their shows and that could be because of the increasing number of bands going across the country right after their summer tours in Europe. If there’s one good thing about all these is to see the constant support most of the rock and metal acts still get, considering how some of them are on tour constantly in the same areas so, if there’s anything all these bands should be thankful for this holiday, it should be all the support from their fans.
