I've always wondered how much the venues get and how much the bands get.

Depends on the agreement. For big stuff, ticket sales aren't particularly relevant for the band. They get their performance fee from the promoters and that's it. Usually some of it up front, and the rest after the show is done. Maybe the size of that second part is partially based on sales? I don't know. But that's why you hear bands comment so much on how merchandising is their main source of profit these days.

For small stuff the promoters, venues and bands are a bit more "in it together" financially speaking.

This is pretty freaking awesome for Clutch. Almost 1,700 for just a regular headlining Clutch show? Pretty amazing. As often as they tour NA I just wouldn't ever think they'd pull in these types of #s but I thought they pull in #s close to this overseas. I'm sure Ravenheart could answer that for me.

I'm sure Ravenheart could answer that for me.

Recent years have been weird as far as Clutch is concerned. I mean, I saw them on the tour for Strange Cousins about three times. Twice at festivals, where their crowds were stupidly small, and once headlining in Copenhagen, Denmark, where the place was sold out, but only held about 600 people.

They go away to record Earth Rocker, amidst their usual bits of US touring, and by the time they come back, during which time nothing's happened Clutch-wise in Europe and the new album isn't even out yet, they sell out a 1000 capacity venue in London, with several other UK dates on the schedule, where last time they were here they couldn't sell 800 when only playing one other show nationwide.

As soon as that tour is over they book another one, this time the London show is a 2,000 capacity theatre, and sell that out too.

They're coming back in April/May, playing 1500-2000 capacity places all over the UK and headlining a festival with Neurosis. Honestly, I can't say I get it. It's not like they've even gotten better over the last few years.

It didn't seem very full at all. Honestly, I'm kind of surprised that over half of the tickets sold.

Honestly, I can't say I get it. It's not like they've even gotten better over the last few years.

pretty simple, they consistently put out great music, consistently kill live (not to mention almost all of their sets are unique), constantly tour and play everywhere (though never oversaturate anywhere), never really compromise, and the result is naturally growing their audience largely by word of mouth.

i saw a similar thing happen in maine to what you said. i saw them draw maybe 300 people to a shitty pool hall in 2007. a couple years later they sell out a 600 cap club. and then another couple years after that they pull 1200 to our big theatre. and really nothing happened in that 4-5 years aside from them just staying awesome.

Alot of that just doesn't really make sense. It really seems like after Earth Rocker came out that just moved Clutch to a different stratosphere. Before their albums sold good (not great) and they drew pretty good (again not great) and now they are drawing and selling better than they ever have in their career, and yet they are having all kinds of success w/o me ever hearing the word sellout. They are doing everything their way and are having the best success in their career. I couldn't be happier and find a more deserving band.

While the attendance for Neurosis seems somewhat small, I think a huge number of people got in for free through either the guestlist or just by being friends with the band and walking in. Last year for the New Years show they put a few hundred people in the Oakland Metro, all of whom were friends of the band.

What these numbers also don't reveal is the metric fuckton of money that was made at the bar. Using the Regency Neurosis show as an example again, they were charging $8 for a 12 oz cup of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. A bottle of that costs like a little more than a buck a pop at the grocery store, and it's probably even cheaper when the venues buys it in bulk. Beer was flowing like water at the show, the venue probably made a killing even if they only sold half capacity's worth of tickets.

Dammit UK for a bigger draw for A7X than Sabbath. It's still just a little over 100 difference but dammit it's the principle. I'm guessing it's bc A7X doesn't do UK as much as Sabbath as lately?

Well, there is a difference, but the ticket prices could have played a factor. Doubt A7X would have sold as well if the prices were the same as Sabbath.

My assumption would be 2,340 is the full capacity and 1,500 is the capacity with the balcony/mezzanine shut down.

What the hell Minnesota? You must hate Morbid Angel. Monster Magnet, August Burns Red, Finntroll, & ATR outsold MA. I get ATR doing more but it's a joke they couldn't pull in more. $25 is super reasonable for MA. Maybe bad weather? MPF explain on behalf of your state !!!!

That night of the Morbid Angel show was the same night as Killswitch/Lamb of God/Testament. So maybe that had something to do with it. Still a damn shame.

Technically I live in Wisconsin, but I am 7 miles from the border.

But yeah that Morbid Angel show, which I was suppose to play with my band before I got sick and Duane Timlin filled in for me; Lamb of God, Killswitch Engage, and Testament was playing the same night. So I'm surprised that Morbid Angel brought in anyone.

The Chicago MA show wasn't the same night as anything and even giving away tickets only drew like 200 people.

Lets stop being biased. MA are iconic but now they've become that band who can't draw anywhere as good as they used to. Some cities they will fare out better than others but for the most part they shot themselves in the foot with Illud

I get how bad Illud hurt them. But they aren't the only band who is/was an iconic band who released a shit album but still managed to draw better than this isn't there? I'm struggling to come up w/ names.

Obviously I don't know how others shows drew so I'm not going to jump to a conclusion but drawing like that should be cause for concern if I'm MA. What were they drawing like during the Tucker years? I know they played a venue in Springfield, MO 10 years ago which is more like a C market that only holds a few hundred people.

Well if MA pulled Metallica numbers which no one else does haha, they'd be ok but since MA is death metal it is a lot harder to rebound. If MA headlines SS like their rumored to they better put out a game changing album cause writing something that's "good" or "better" is not gonna rebound them to the status they once had.

dcmetal108
02-20-2014, 12:26 PM
Iconic doesn't sell tickets though. If they are playing a big venue that holds 1200 people (even though when the played another venue here that doesn't even hold 400 and didn't sell that out) and ticket prices are high then your success rate is low.

For your modern metal crowd they either don't know who MA are or just don't care. MA haven't done alot to try and make themselves a bigger name in metal lately to stay relevant with your casual crowd.

well, worcester palladium is 2000ish capacity, and the two shows i see on ticketmaster right now are supposedly in the range of 2000 and 1000. not exactly small.

but yeah, at that price, even half filling those places would bring in a good chunk of change, so i can see not being motivated to the change the price point. i meant more "not that bad" in relation to like the aforementioned MA 194/729 :lol:

WOW! That's very rare for prices of more popular club acts to go above $50. I'm quite surprised they even did that well. I sure hope that doesn't start a new trend in prices of future club acts. Paying $50 to see the Scorpions back in 2008 was almost too much.

I paid $47 to see Scorpions in 2010, and that was in the 9th row of a 6,500 seat amphitheater.

Two reasons why Manowar charges a fuckton for their shows.

1. They don't own their overtly massive audio & PA equipment.
2. Joey DeMaio's ego is larger than Gene Simmons'.
