Holy Shit, Iron Maiden Earn a LOT of Money at Their 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, this time with an emphasis on Iron Maiden’s recent European dates with Killswitch Engage.

These numbers are quite impressive, putting Maiden in the same realm as Metallica and Guns N’ Roses when it comes to metal acts bringing in the dough.

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.
