The reunion shows? Hell yeah, those made lots of money, at least the first ones, before they started doing them every year.

Well they did 2 nights in SF to about 2000 people with 3 members, I don't imagine the opener got paid much.

I think merch sales also play a factor in it too, I remember their shirts sold out frequently throughout 2011 and they had trouble fulfilling the sheer amount of orders. At the time, Jason Roeder's company was the one printing the shirts and so I can imagine their profit margins being pretty big.

Also, there were sponsors involved, and they get a chunk of change from that, as well. Ticket sales aren't the only source of revenue.

Yeah but I think it's safe to say that money is proportional to ticket sales.

So somebody told me that Matt Pike is currently in the hospital in Spain, but they were supposed to play a Scion show tonight and have the two shows in Seattle and Oakland the day after...

Fuck, hopefully that's not true.

EDIT: My friend who was at Scion saw Sleep, so obviously Matt Pike is safe and sound here in the good ol'e US of A

Yep, saw Sleep at Scion Rock Fest today. I'm not quite sure I get their appeal though. They're very repetitive, as I only found small differences between each song (I only stayed for about 25 minutes though). They sounded good for what they were playing, but I don't see how what they play is considered "lucrative" to others. I guess they're just not my thing.

I will say that there was a bigger crowd for Sleep than any other band I saw, including Down (although Exodus played at the same time as them, even though Exodus wasn't as packed as I thought it would be).
