2019:
Reported audience: 527,140 / 543,323 (97.02%)
Reported gross: $59,603,265
Average ticket: $113.07
Average audience: 11,969
Shows: 44

1996:
Reported audience: 1,200,000
Reported Gross: $43,600,000
Average Audience: 13,043
Shows: 92

Source: https://variety.com/1996/scene/vpage/ye ... 117436237/

Less than half the # of shows, but $16 million more in gross ticket sales.

Audience is 1,000 on average less per show in 2019 vs. 1996, but if an arena is sold out, it's sold out. Could be the bigger stage show, playing smaller arenas (for example, in San Diego the arena they played is smaller than the SD Sports Arena they normally play), etc.

The numbers don't lie. EOTR is a huge success.
It's making more in revenue because ticket prices are more then double what they were in 1996.

And 1996 Kiss could have packed more people into arenas if the arena held more people, you can't say that about 2019 Kiss.
It’s a different world. The goal is to not “pack them in”. The goal is to sell the last ticket at showtime for as much as possible.
Oh yeah, like the guy I saw buy a $750 ticket at ticketmaster.com for Nassau Coliseum for $250, just an hour before the show (and the ticket next to him went unsold), so yeah that's the plan, hope that tickets don't sell so we can get only a third of their initial cost later on (or nothing for an unsold one). So the goal was to get just $250 for two tickets that went on sale for $1500. :P
Red - I didn't go to my EOTR tour stop and take my 21 year old son because I couldn't afford to go. Period. Kiss / concert fans never claim how much they paid for concert tickets and are proud of how much money the band pulls in. Unless Nibbs has the table down front with his wine and cheese at the Heart / Joan Jett / Cheap Trick show, then his number counting makes no sense.
I did enjoy that show very much. Jones Beach was pretty full too.

That was Live Nation’s surprise hit of 2016.

I mean they couldn't really draw money, but it was a great triple bill.

Am sorry to hear you guys didn't get to go. Maybe nearby on another leg hopefully. I'll give another example of what I'm talking about. I'm considering seeing Barry Manilow as he's doing like 20 shows give or take, in July and August at a Broadway theater. It's selling like shit, plenty of seats for each show, and already the prices for every single seat have gone down. It didn't seem to help much, so I'm sure they'll go down again. Thing is, it's a small place, so every seat is good, so every seat was pricey. It didn't work. People didn't buy in droves. And I'm sure not a single person who's making money off those shows has said, "Awesome! We didn't sell tickets out of the gate, so we had to lower the price, and probably wlll again!"

With Kiss, Barclay's in Brooklyn is selling horribly, so it's a good bet tickets will go down as the show approaches. Same thing, I'm sure no one is going to be saying, "This is great! We'll get 50% of what we initially charged!" If they go down enough there, as I can just walk to the place, I'll even consider buying. But yes, I hope you guys can make it to a show definitely.

Here's some context. Billboard just reported the hottest May tours. Boy band BTS played 8 shows in May to 384,000 people and grossed $51,666,038.

Eight shows. Fifty-one million.

Metallica was next with 5 shows and $28.6 million.

Not a bad way to spend your May.
I’m sure if I was stuck in an elevator for three hours with BTS I would have no clue.
They'd be the ones with all the money.

That made me lol.

I get that on the big tours and even Live Nation Tours.

But what are you defending here? We all agree the concert industry is based on suck all the money you can from the people that can afford to go. That doesn't mean tickets sold don't matter and aren't used to tell the story.

Tickets sold are still the standard and the one thing that has stayed the same.

Billboard is just hyping the bands they want to promote and never do an Apples to Apples comparison.
Defending nothing..... just splainin’ that’s all.

A milestone of sorts... 36 month averages of reported dates* hit an average of 10K+ per show and average $1m gate. It's been fun watching this edge up since the start of the EOTR tour, AND dates reported in 2016-18.

* yes, reported dates and not all dates have been reported, but that's not the point.

I think the concert industry is gonna be in a heap of trouble in a decade or so. It can survive off of these prices now because you have a lot of big bands from the 70’s and 80’s still touring. Their fans are older and have a lot more disposable income. What happens when these bands die off? How many arena packing artists have come out in the last 20 years? A whole lot less then in the decades prior.
Yup. If some of these current artists are gonna get involved in the dynamic pricing game, then they better disappear for years in between tours, because it won't be sustainable on the regular.

I'm just glad that some bands want no part of it. I'm gonna see Phish next week, and they always bring the heat in concert in front of packed crowds. No dynamic pricing, price points with little to no disparity (other than lawn seats, obviously they'll be lower than pavilion seats), and the option for fans to pre-order tickets directly from the band...but they'll still gross a cool million (or so) every show, and they can come back every summer to the same city with similar results, because the fans don't feel like they're getting burned by overpaying. A million per show every year, sounds like good business to me...
A cool 1.5 MILLION a show? Really? Really? They just played the Steifel Theater in St. Louis last week. It seats 3,000. Granted, they did two nights. But there were tickets available for the 2nd show. Please tell me how they made 1.5 million dollars from an audience of 3,000???????
They also just headlined bonaroo. For the third time. One of the biggest music festivals in the us. Probably only behind Coachella. So yes, they’re doing quite well. And have been for decades.
That. And unfortunately for you, you shouldn't have even had to make that post in the first place, because they actually played 2 nights in Chaifetz Arena, not the Steifel Theater. Maybe Trey Anastasio played a solo show at the Steifel recently, but I'm in too much a hurry to check right now. I guess the deception continues, lol...
Just wanna say, I've been to these places!

The Chaf, The Stiefel.

I know where they are.

(sorry nibs, it wasn't another boxscore)
I see that changed a few hours later! :D

I’m intrigued to how many European dates we get boxscores for.

Well, if we’re measuring our manhood...

Ed Sheeran grossed an all time calendar year record in 2018 with $432.4M. A few days ago his current tour broke the all time mark of $735M and still climbing.

Good for Ed.

I honestly couldn’t name one of his songs and wouldn’t know who he was if I was stuck in an elevator with the guy.

He apparently hasn’t missed the fact that I won’t be attending any of his shows anytime soon.

Quote from the Spice Girls:

"We're very disappointed that we sold out so fast and made so much money, we really wanted late sales, discounted tickets and only half that gross."

In the real world however, congrats to the real big boys (and girls), Metallica and The Spice Girls. Infuckingsane is right.

Imagine if KISS had done Meet & Greet packages on the Alive/Worldwide Tour.
Yep that would be ONE massive pay day. Imagine the guitar sales also. A major missed opportunity for them.

I know right! Some fans seem so butt hurt about the success of current KISS that they are talking up practically anyone to try and downplay KISS’ achievements. Who’s next? 😁

This can’t all be about trying to prove Nibbs wrong, surely! :scratch:

It's entertaining to watch people try to belittle how many millions of dollars a band is making by referring to others who are making more. Spice Girls? Rolling Stones? Mere club acts compared with Ed Fucking Sheeran.

Why not go the whole hog and say "musical acts? Fuck that. Software is where its at. Facebook made 8 chabillion dollars last year and Kiss struggled to do 60million. Facebook are the real big boys."

Who really fucking cares outside of the band and their accountants? Fans of different lineups who want "their" lineup to have made the most money, thats who.

Its endearing in a way.

Lol yup. It’s very predictable yet funny. Some get so riled up over and seemingly hurt by it. That’s the only reason I still bring them up. It gives me a little chuckle. The fact that mentioning them does indeed prove points and bring others on here back to reality is just an added bonus.

It's also entertaining when posters acknowledge that they only post certain things because they like to think they have the ability to rile people up.

Exactly. But it doesn't rile anyone up. It just makes those posters look like fools.

It gives me a chuckle too. I just think "What a fool" and laugh my ass off.
