When you think about it, Megadeth is the only band that is well known for metal and non-metal fans, and MAYBE Hellyeah and that is pushing it. As others have pointed out there is so many package tours going on that people who don't have that much moo-la have to pick and choose the packages with the most bang for the buck, and imo Gignatour doesn't have the star power like it did when it started 7 years ago

BLS are still pretty big(and next to Dream Theater one of the biggest bands to do this tour, draw wise), but they're doing large ampitheaters with a headliner who has toured alot recently(which wasnt the case when Gigantour started) and with a roster of bands who are mostly just starting out(except for Hellyeah, who draws a club sized crowd)

Remember by the 3rd outing of this tour they scaled down the venues, this is a fun tour but not one drawing the same mainstream crowds as other summer packages

I think BLS and Megadeth usually play the same size venues, though neither are close to filling a arena even close.

That too, case in point the failed "Pedal to the Metal" tour

So Zach was telling me the Chicago show had maybe 1,500 people at it. That means that the pit wasn't even full and since the arena was half cut it still holds like 7,000 or so people/

This gets me wondering, who gets paid when the shows sell out and who eats the cost when it's a bust? I know some people here have toured small time, but that never really gets talked about.

Not in a band, not 100% sure but I have a friend who used to book shows (much smaller scale) and what I recall him telling me that the bands will get their $ in advance and then it's up to the arena/promoters to promote and talk their show up so then they can try to earn back whatever $ was spent on the artists. Again this is most insider info I have. Maybe I'm way off and someone can correct me.
