I bet a show like Tulsa barely saw any profit for them.
The band hasn't been reliant on ticket sales for decades.
They get a guarantee from the promoter.
I believe Madison Square Garden was a sellout too. And several other venues. Numbers are not just up yet.
If you think about it, how many bands/artists (besides country shit) can sell out venues like that year-in-year out... everywhere around the US?
Of course U2, AC/DC, DMB, Springsteen, Stones, Van Halen, Fleetwood Mac and the other old farts... but besides them? Not so many. New bands and teen idols come and go... only these old guys are guaranteed draws.
2010 Rush ranked nicely among the top grossing acts (per gig)
