Thread: Concert Questions

XDrums34 - 1/2/2008 at 09:19 AM

Say you had a lot of extra money layin around; and all you wanted to do with this large sum of extra cash was have a concert for friends and family, as well as any and all fans of damn good music. I'm just wonderin', if anyone out there knows, how much it would cost me to get the ABB to play a gig at a theatre in the Chicago area. Let me know what you know, and you're all invited if I can make it happen.

well, let's see ..... take the beacon for example. 2000 seats maybe? average ticket, lets say $100. so that would be $200,000 gross. rental on the beacon for a night? dunno, maybe 50K?

so they make $150,00 for the night?

does that sound right? or outrageous?

I would guess that a LOT more hands reach into that "profit"

I'd say if you seriously had $50,000 - $75,000 to spend, it'd be worth while contacting Bert Holman or whom ever is their booking agent. Best regards, Doug

Bless your soul for thinking of it. Please let me know if it actually happens. I would make the trip to Chicago from Iowa.
