Wanna Know How Much Money Korn, Pierce the Veil, Pallbearer and More Earn to Play Shows?


korn moneyBillboard’s latest Boxscore report is out and, once again, The PRP has done all the heavy lifting by weeding out all the metal and hard rock shows that are relevant to us. Thank youuuuuu Wook!

As always, please keep in mind that these are gross box office sales, so they don’t reflect expenses that need to be taken out such as the venue’s cut, fees paid to opening acts, and band expenses such as their crew, vehicle and fuel, etc. On the other side, they also don’t include income from merch sales. But still, it’s fun to look at these to get an idea of the general earning power these bands have relative to one another.
