    Damn. Scope out Puscifer with the sell out. Good job, gentlemen (and lovely Carina)

  • Anonymous501

    Wow makes me feel bad for Weiland. Dude was stuck in a perpetual tour on the road making almost no money. He played here last year but it was $80/head. Saw STP for less when they played here a few years before that…. That’s gotta be a kick in the nuts going from playing arenas/theatres to playing shows where your whole band takes in 8 grand.

    • Felonious Punk

      That’s probably what their profits were after Tommy Black snorted his share and Mary Forsberg got her cut

      • Corndog

        “hey everybody, where did Mary go?”

        She’s off to the bank Scott….

        • Felonious Punk

          “I think I saw her over by Tommy’s bus bed, doing a couple lines with him…”

      • JoelS

        Does anybody have any idea what she does now? Like does she have a job or anything?

        • Felonious Punk

          Her primary meal ticket is gone, so I too would be interested in knowing this..

        • david

          Pulling in money for her lame book about addiction and having a mental illness? Yet today, she claims she never had bipolar illness. So…. is that a symptom of bipolar? Denial?? Chick is messed up. Poor scott.

        • Nancy

          He was paying her 60K a month in child support. She now owns Scott’s recording studio. Renting it out for just over 4k a month.

  • Felonious Punk

    Fucking hilarious how Tool is making more at their shows than any of these other musicians, and yet they’re the only ones bitching about how they can make more money

    • Raj

      So basically they are no better than the dudes on Wall Street, the guys they are supposedly rebelling against?

      • Felonious Punk

        To be fair, Tool was admitting they sold out more than 20 years ago.

        I just think it’s ironic to see a band who makes $700,000+ per show and charges $500 for a meet n’ greet to be complaining about how their archaic marketing strategies are losing them money and that they need to find ways to recoup their losses.

        I guess that’s why there’s things like $500 VIP packages and $1,500 portraits of Maynard in a gimp mask

        • Corndog

          After the venue ETC has been paid, how much of that money do you reckon goes to the band?

          • Felonious Punk

            Obviously not enough, because Adam’s bitching to his $500 fans how little the band is making and how they need to come up with ways to make more

          • Wam Meesly

            There are numerous ways a concert agreement is written. From gate proceed divisions to guaranteed vs. net shares, to multiple date/theatre affiliate splits, its difficult to determine what percentage is actually paid to the venue fees and band. That said, it is far from uncommon for a band at this level to net $1m+ per show, each night, especially with sold out shows. In other words, a 15 date Tool tour will net each bandmember, presuming a 25% each split, around $3.75m.

    • Nicholas Grant

      You failed to mention how much money Tool has lost as a band due to the law suits that they just went through….

      • Felonious Punk

        I didn’t mention it because it’s not a factor in this case.

        Maynard has been doing the Puscifer and the vineyard thing for a decade now, and both have been lucrative ventures for him.

        Nobody told the other three guys to just sit on their ass for the last 10 years sulking, either. Tool has done countless tours over the years since 10KD and pulls in considerable bank with each one. You could say “well, they were embroiled in lawsuits and couldn’t release a new album during that time”, but they had *nothing* as far as new music when the case was settled. Nothing was stopping them from jamming and recording during the lawsuit and having an album (or two) ready to go as soon as the gavel fell, if they were hurting so bad for money..

      • jcal7

        Do you really buy that? What was the artwork that was infringed? They have not been using anything but Alex Grey for years. Also Adam has worked in that industry too. And the insurance company also bailed on them? Why would you get insurance for that? They got wrapped up with their record label that held up lateral us if I’m correct… Major coincidence that would hold up another album 20 years later

        And then Maynard ploughs away with his wine and other bands… They have toured almost every year with a few shows… They made more money by not releasing albums. Don’t buy this latest one. They are hugely talented and deserved to be rewarded but ANY band on this level complaining about not getting enough have passed into the greedy threshold.

  • Raj

    No wonder Weiland wanted to reform with STP and/VR, his name alone was drawing very little but behind a big band and tour he could have earned a lot more had he been able to beat his addictions.

  • Jimmy Intense

    Sad to see that Scott was practically begging people to come to his shows with $15 tickets. Hell, one of my bands played shows in the early 2000’s for that much.

    • david

      Weiland’s lack of ticket sales is two-fold. 1. Lack of proper advertisement (I had no idea he was playing in my town until show date had passed) 2. He had numerous bad reviews due to addiction/fatigue, etc, of recent shows of same tour.

  • mikedmeyer

    Figuring out a concert’s gross sales is trivial. Your article claims to show how much money Tool made, but that’s a very different number from gross sales.

  • God

    Weiland barely filled 1/3 of the theatre.

  • Hypo Luxa

    How much is enough…?

  • James Tuthill

    Scott was doing a solo tour, the rest of these are well known band names. Scott Weiland is known to true fans, Stone Temple Pilots is a famous brand he created. I’m sure they would draw more if they were together. If Maynard James Keenan went around touring under his actual name I bet you’d see a similar amount of ticket sales.
