Iron Maiden tops Billboard’s Hot Tours ranking for the third time this year!
Earlier this summer we wrote that the Maiden England World Tour was a money-making machine that brought Iron Maiden to the top of Billboard‘s prestigious tour ranking.
Now Classic Rock Magazine reports that Maiden shot to the top of the list again after making an incredible 15 million dollars from nine shows at the end of the 2013 tour. In Billboard‘s ranking we note that the Rock In Rio show is not counted, and that only the Sao Paulo show is listed as a sell-out.
The total of ticket sales for the 2013 Maiden England tour reported to Billboard comes to more than 57 million dollars, and over 900 000 people have attended the shows.
Needless to say, Iron Maiden’s History tours have become very big business indeed, and Steve Harris is probably in no rush to sell that Essex mansion to cover living expenses.
