How much money does a band make on the road? Billboard hopes to answer that question, somewhat, by providing gross sale reports in their weekly Boxscore report. We like to check in every once in a while to see how metal bands are doing. Keep in mind, these are gross sales, meaning this is before the venue, promoter, etc. get the cut. This doesn't mean the band gets the entire piece of the pie and their profits vary based on the deals they make. As always, thanks to ThePRP for the numbers. Check out our previous Earnings & Attendance Reports.

There were a lot of concerts this summer and we've already seen some returns from three of biggest tours of the year, Metallica, Guns N Roses and Iron Maiden – and all the returns were massive. We have a few new shows trickling in, showing that while it's a long way to the top if you want to rock and roll, once you get there, it's a lot of $$$$.
