Iron Maiden: Still Earning Mad Loot


While it might not match the impressive numbers posted by Metallica or Guns N’ Roses, the latest Boxscore report shows that Iron Maiden are still amongst metal’s top earning bands in the live sphere. Some show grosses from the band’s in-progress North American tour shows the band surpassing $1 million in gross ticket sales per night.

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 bands, especially relative to one another.
