Black Sabbath Grossed 10 Times More Money Than A7X on Latest Shows, Report Confirms
A recent official Boxscore report has unveiled quite a few interesting stats from the rock and metal domain, including earning and attendance figures of such icons as Black Sabbath, Megadeth, Dream Theater and more.

As expected, Sabbath are dominating the metal part of the chart as the only band making over $1 million per show, about 10 times more than Avenged Sevenfold, whose $135,000 per show figure is still no mean feat, beating the likes of mentioned Megadeth and DT.

In the not-so-strong part of the chart, Soulfly made barely above $4,000 per gig during a recent string of US dates. More info below, courtesy of Metal Injection.

Also note that the listed figures represent gross sales, meaning that the venue, promoter and others didn't get their share yet.
