Wanna Know How Much Killswitch Engage, Between the Buried and Me, Faith No More, Corey Taylor and More Earn to Play Live Shows?


btbam-coma-tourTime for another round of box office reports! Thanks to The PRP, as always, for collecting all the metal and hard rock artists in one place.

As usual, note that these numbers are not a wholly accurate reflection of how much money these artists/festivals take home. After the ticket numbers are in, the bands still need to pay 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.
