It's a pretty simple situation. When it comes to the big bands, the US gets the best support packages, but probably overall fewer tours because of the European festival circuit.
When it comes to smaller bands, the US gets the best tours for the bands which are American, Europe gets the best tours for the bands which are European. No one gets tours for bands from elsewhere.
