If you keep wondering how much your favorite bands make when they head out on the road, Billboard‘s Boxscore released their latest batch of earnings and attendance from many artists, and we’ve summarized them here for you.

Last time we spoke about earnings and attendance, we saw the numbers of a few festivals like Rocklahoma, Carolina Rebellion and others just to realized that each and every one of them were very successful. For this week, we will take a look at another big name among the festival circuit and that’s Vans Warped Tour. The festival has been happening for quite some time already and we can actually remember how they did last year around the same time of the year. On top of that, we have numbers for other tours we think you may be interested on reading. These are the bands that can smile every time they look at their bank account:

Here’s an idea: Vans Warped Tour should stop going to Orlando, FL unless they can still break even with those numbers. That’s not even half of the capacity expected for that tour and, while $380,000 may seem like a lot, it may not be that big if they book a place expecting 22K people. Also, this isn’t even the first time that happened. Last year, they had the same outcome when they stopped at Orlando so maybe they should discuss if it’s worth going to such a hot place right in the middle of Summer. Take a look at the Taste of Chaos tour and you will see a package who understands their current market and did fairly well by reducing their expected capacity to what they probably would’ve done a few years back.
