Ok MOGGIO, its July 31, 2011 and U2 has completed all their 360 stadium shows, but the band decide they want to continue to play to whatever demand is left in North America and Europe in Arena's. GROSS at that point stands at $730 million. How much could U2 add to that gross by playing an arena leg of Europe and an arena leg of North America in summer/fall 2011?

Hey Moggio if you could learn to read I said everyone uses some type of strategic scheduling. When I said ridiculous, I was referring to your definition of strategic scheduling.

And why the harsh language? Usually people with lower intelligence have to substitute words for the way you speak. Your last post about me only once again proved to me what a big moron you are. Are you sure you are not 16 years old?

I bet your access to any type of boxscores is by freeloading off of others...happy trolling you idiotic moron.

Oh since your prediction for Madonna for a tour starting in 2013 with 110 shows is $1 Billion and she is more popular than the Stones and U2 according to you, can we assume that your prediction for the Stones in the same format would be $900 million?
No, I didn't say that. I said Madonna's demand level in 2013 considering she doesn't tour in 2011 or 2012 and performs 110 shows with massive strategic scheduling, will be CLOSER to $1 Billion, not $1 Billion. More specifically and considering the above factors, it would be in the $850-$900 million range. And The Stones' demand level, considering the above factors and with relatively strong openers, by this point will be very similar.

Not all of them were though.

Let's go over this AGAIN:

U2 wouldn't have a HOPE IN HELL at grossing that much $$$ in Chicago at that time or on the 360 tour within a 13 MONTH PERIOD, without strategic scheduling and including major ARENA openers. Not only that but those Stones' stats are FIVE to SIX years old. They would be at least 20-25% higher today.

That's a vague question. I need more details.

Good advice. Can't you all just discuss without the personal attacks.

Ok, then we'll have you on record as $850-$900 million for Madonna and $850 million for the Stones given a 110 date tour.

I can't see Madonna doing more than $600 million.

But we'll see who is right in a couple of years.

[FONT=Arial Black][COLOR=Blue]
As they would all be re-union tours as opposed to a tour by a band that has been consistently active for the past 30 years, I would probably estimate that as well.

Still, until it happens, its not a fact.

U2
September 12-13, 2009
Chicago Illinois
Soldier Field
GROSS: $13,860,480
ATTENDANCE: 135,872
SHOWS: 2
SELLOUTS: 2
Average Ticket Price: $102.01
SUPPORT: Snow Patrol

3rd show originally scheduled for July 6, 2010 until May 2010 postponement due to Bono's back injury. Rescheduled date is July 5, 2011. SUPPORT is Interpol.

So, prior to the 3rd concert being postponed, the gap between the first two shows and the third was only 10 months, so that not a factor.


Rolling Stones
September 10, 2005
Chicago Illinois
Soldier Field Stadium
GROSS: $7,231,427
ATTENDANCE: 55,046
SHOWS: 1
SELLOUTS: 1
Average ticket Price: $131.37

January 23, 25, 2006
Chicago Illinois
United Center
GROSS: $5,545,431
ATTENDANCE: 29,997
SHOWS: 2
SELLOUTS: 2
Average Ticket Price: $184.87

October 11, 2006
Chicago Illinois
Soldier Field
GROSS: $4,020,721
ATTENDANCE: 33,296
SHOWS: 1
SELLOUTS: 1
Average Ticket Price: $120.76
SUPPORT: Elvis Costello

Combined Rolling Stones gross in Chicago on A Bigger Bang over 13 month period: $16,797,579.

1. If we were to believe your 25% increase, that would put the Stones combined total at just under $21 million.

2. Thats essentially where U2 will be at with their third show, about $21 million and thats without playing any arena shows like the Stones have.

3. U2's openers, Snow Patrol and Interpol are NOT arena level acts in the United States. The best they have ever done in the United States is play theaters or small music halls. Neither of these artist is anywhere near being able to have a show at the United Center or Rosemount Horizon.

4. In contrast, the Stones had the FAMOUS Elvis Costello open their last show in Chicago. I'm still looking to see who opened the other three shows, but its likely they were a bigger draw than either Interpol or Snow Patrol.

Its a rather simple question. Same as any other asking one to estimate gross potential based on certain factors. I have a list of about 30 arena shows in North America, and 30 arena shows in Europe that U2 could do this fall with the total gross being I think around $100 million to $120 million.

By next week, U2 360 should pass Rolling Stones A Bigger Bang Tour in total GROSS.

We now almost have all the individual boxscores for the Rolling Stones A Bigger Bang Tour. Were only missing 24 from the European 2007 summer tour. It looks like Michael Cohl chose not to release those. Many of the others were not released or kept from the public for a while. He did of course release the final totals. Early on, only a few dozen of the individual boxscores were available. We now have 119 of them! Here they are:

For the next potential Rolling Stones tour in 2013, given 110 dates, without shows being played in 2011 or 2012 and with strategic scheduling and relatively strong openers, yes. For the next potential Madonna tour in 2013, given 110 dates, without shows being played in 2011 or 2012 and with massive strategic scheduling, yes.

Still, until it happens, its not a fact.
It's a FACT. AND, OF COURSE, YOU KNOW IT.

3rd show originally scheduled for July 6, 2010 until May 2010 postponement due to Bono's back injury. Rescheduled date is July 5, 2011. SUPPORT is Interpol.

So, prior to the 3rd concert being postponed, the gap between the first two shows and the third was only 10 months, so that not a factor.

SUPPORT: Elvis Costello

Combined Rolling Stones gross in Chicago on A Bigger Bang over 13 month period: $16,797,579.

1. If we were to believe your 25% increase, that would put the Stones combined total at just under $21 million.

2. Thats essentially where U2 will be at with their third show, about $21 million and thats without playing any arena shows like the Stones have.

3. U2's openers, Snow Patrol and Interpol are NOT arena level acts in the United States. The best they have ever done in the United States is play theaters or small music halls. Neither of these artist is anywhere near being able to have a show at the United Center or Rosemount Horizon.

4. In contrast, the Stones had the FAMOUS Elvis Costello open their last show in Chicago. I'm still looking to see who opened the other three shows, but its likely they were a bigger draw than either Interpol or Snow Patrol.


Let's go over this FOR A THIRD TIME:

U2 wouldn't have a HOPE IN HELL at grossing that much $$$ in Chicago at that time or on the 360 tour within a 13 MONTH PERIOD, without strategic scheduling and including major ARENA openers. Not only that but those Stones' stats are FIVE to SIX years old. They would be at least 20-25% higher today.

Also, U2 DID NOT/WILL NOT play Chicago THREE SEPARATE TIMES in a 13 MONTH PERIOD on their Vertigo and/or 360 tours.


Oh...and Snow Patrol and Interpol ARE ARENA draws.

No, it's not a simple question. Tours of this size, along with return engagements and other factors are not common at all. Which markets would these 60 arena shows be performed in?
