The mere fact Simple Plan is still on this list makes me want a raise.

I would think that Warped Tour is would be ALOT higher.

Compared to most of these, Warped is a LOT cheaper and plays to way less people. Roger Waters and Van Halen play to tens of thousands of people in arenas, Warped gets like...maybe 5000 in a parking lot? Idk.

No Mayhem?

Average Warped Tour crowd is around 20,000. Chicago is usually way more than that.

I agree though that compared to most tours Warped Tour is the cheapest by far though.

The only real surprise for me was Aerosmith being so low on the proper list (i.e. the world tours one). But then, they did only played NA didn't they?
