How much you think....

Bob and phil get paid for each show at the beacon. I have no clue really. I was thinking maybe ten grand each. I might be way off. Just curious. They deserve every penny.

i think 10 is really low i can almost guarantee as a band they get every bit of 200 or 300 thousand so i imagine they would clear around 100 each if that were the case and the last 100 distributed to the rest of the band members. i know like 4 years ago i knew a guy who was trying to bring phil and friends to a small festival and it was gonna be 50g for one show

Honestly I think you'd be surprised. Of course they make some, but I believe the bulk of their money comes from sales
of previous works. And their cut of Furthur CD's and downloads, merchandise etc. I think the performance is only a part
of their income, but they do it because it promotes the catalogue, and of course because they love it.
I can't come down, it's plain to see.

they certainly don't get anywhere close to 200-300K per show as the gross per night ($75x2900 tix) is only 217,000. I would also guess that personally they are getting low 5 figures per night to play.
The Sailor, coming out again, the lady fairly leapt at him.
That's how it stands today. You decide if he was wise.

Yeah. I agree. Remember, the gross has to cover everything. The venue gets a chunk. And that's not a small chunk either.
The city gets some. Insurance and permits have to be covered. The crew, and management all get a cut, and of course,
the rest of the band gets theirs. Expenses have to be paid.

Average ticket not including fees is around $75 a night (not exactly sure on that) so ticket sells alone are around $1,680,000 for 8 nights plus merch . That's alot of moola.
GOOD LOVE

Don't forget that they have to pay taxes on all the earnings from merch, soundboards etc. No one wants to end up in a Willie Neslon type situation. I'd guess that Bobby and Phil take home about 5-10 k per show after taxes and expenses.
