Holy Fuck! Metallica Earned a Shitload of Money on Their Summer Tour!

0

Just as last week’s Boxscore report provided a great look at the ticket grosses of Iron Maiden’s summer tour, so does this week’s for Metallica’s massive “WorldWired” stadium tour, which just wrapped up. These numbers, as usual, are culled from Boxscore by The PRP, with the average per-show gross for the dates listed coming in at well over $4 million each.

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.

Here are some numbers from Metallica’s tour, with grosses from other metal and hard rock tours available at The PRP:
