He headlined Rock On The Range last year, and that had a huge crowd

Personally, I think he can bring in the cash. He had a huge audience in the '90s thanks to MTV, and it only mulitiplied when he started making movies. Could he do stadiums alone? I'd venture to say yes, but to be honest I don't know. But I know for a fact he can do large theaters and ampitheaters, which given Mayhem Fest's selection of venues, is perfect for them.

Stadiums alone? Not even close. Sorry, but he ain't ACDC or Metallica.

He couldn't do summer sheds or arenas by himself either.

His last few tours have all been co-headlining (w/ Alice Cooper, Marilyn Manson & Megadeth).

The last time he toured without a huge name on the bill was in early 2010 and he was playing House of Blues sized venues.

I'm not sure about the Megadeth tour, but wasn't he still top billed performer on all of the co-headliner tours?

Do the side stage headliners play at the same time? Machine Head and Children of Bodom are the only bands i'm a big enough fan of to justify going, but if any portion of their sets overlap that'd be a deal breaker.

Dude there's a big difference between stadiums and amphitheaters. I don't know where you got the idea of Zombie headlining stadiums.

On the Slayer tour they rotated, otherwise he's headlined



I should also mention between the Megadeth tour and Manson tour Zombie headlined both NJ venues getting Mayhem this summer
