Wanna Know How Much Money Deftones, The Sword, Attila and Others Earn to Play Shows?


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.

As usual, 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 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.
