Holy Crap, Iron Maiden Made a Shitload of Money on Their “Book of Souls” Tour

0

The latest Boxscore report has landed and, as usual, The PRP’s done the heavy-lifting of sorting through it and posting the box office numbers of some notable metal and hard rock bands.

The report has a number of notable metal and hard rock acts listed, but this week’s edition may as well be called The Iron Maiden Report, with figures from several of the band’s recent North America arena shows with Ghost listed. And holy shit: the band is raking it in! Not that that should come as any surprise — you don’t play arenas and do “just OK,” and Maiden’s show, as always, is phenomenal — but seeing these numbers all laid out in front of your eyes is quite something.

Note that these numbers are not a wholly accurate reflection of how much money these artists take home. After the ticket numbers are in, the bands still need to pay the opening acts, cover their crew and travel expenses, share a cut with the promoter, pay their manager and booking agent, etc. On the other side of it, the numbers also don’t include any money earned from merch sales. But these Boxscore reports do provide a general idea of the earning power of each of these bands, especially relative to one another.
