SOAD took home $325,000.00 per show on Ozzfest 2006.

Last year, though, she said, the fees earned by bands, including about $325,000 a show for the group System of a Down, almost sank the festival.
"They're taking four years off, we paid them so much, and we're still working," she said. "I'm not doing that again."

I forget where I saw this, but basically the crew for a professional touring band often has a more stable income than the band themselves.
They don't ask for anywhere close to that. They aren't playing 2500-3000 seaters when they headline. You're looking at bands like Lamb of God level and up for 35-40k.

35k was what I heard from a friend who tried to book Death Angel for a one-off gig. I also recall Exodus charging somewhere around 20-25k six years ago when they did the Tidal Wave Festival in SF about five years ago, a couple years before Gary Holt was able to ride the Big 4 wave and make Exodus really popular again. You're a promoter so I'll take your word that you're more informed than I am, but I would frankly be extremely unsurprised at 30k for a band like Death Angel or Exodus, just for the fact that both of those bands have full crews to pay, feed and transport.

I'm here on the mezzanine in NYC and I see why show #1 was cancelled. Screw logistical issues, this shit is empty. Floor isn't even filled. I would post the setlist live but who cares, it's gonna be the same as every other show.

In a massive lol-worthy moment, the fake poster someone made here is on a bootleg shirt being sold on eBay
