Muse should rank among the Top 15 Artist Tours in Pollstar and among the Top 50 Tours in Billboard. The year-end concert box office charts will be released by both publications in mid to late December. Muse will rank lower in Billboard because official attendance and concert ticket sales figures have been reported for only about 40 of the band's 78 shows which took place in calendar year 2013 and that publication's cutoff is mid-November meaning artist gigs occurring in December 2013 will be included in the magazine's 2014 year-end chart.

 

Top 12 Grossing Tours by Bands/Groups (January-December 2013) ranked in descending order (est.):

 

Bon Jovi

Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band

One Direction*

Depeche Mode

Muse

The Rolling Stones

Fleetwood Mac

Maroon 5

The Dave Matthews Band

Iron Maiden

The Killers

Black Sabbath

 

*The Anglo-Irish boy band may gross an additional $200 million (est.) in 2014 from their 60+ date stadium tour in Europe and the Americas.

 

Top 20 Grossing Tours by Solo Acts (January-December 2013) ranked in descending order (est.):

 

P!nk*

Beyonce*

Justin Bieber

Rihanna

Taylor Swift*

Paul McCartney

Kenny Chesney

Robbie Williams

Roger Waters The Wall Live

Bruno Mars*

Michael Buble

JAY Z*

Justin Timberlake*

Andre Rieu

Luke Bryan

Blake Shelton

John Mayer

Elton John

Alicia Keys

*These artists' tours continue into early 2014.

Muse Economics

 

"Unsustainable Tour" - 20 Europe Stadium Shows Summer 2013:

 

Gross Concert Sales Receipts (est.): £38 million (US$61 million) from 780k tickets sold @ $78 avg ticket price

Less Tour Budget Overhead Costs of 12 to 15 million quid according to MJB in recent Q magazine interview

Less Booking Agents and Promoters Fees of 25-30%

Less Management Commissions of 10-15% on Net Modified Concert Sales Revenue

Less Taxes (45-50% marginal rate)

Band Net Earnings ("We're probably not gonna make any money out of this one" - MJB said in jest from same interview cited above)

 

In the final analysis, Muse certainly makes money from touring but the band's rather extravagant touring production costs and relatively low ticket prices especially in North America mean each band member earn less than other well known superstar touring acts.

Muse has just received its sixth GRAMMY nomination for "Panic Station" for Best Rock Song. "Madness" was nominated in the same category a year ago and "Resistance" in the same category three years ago.

 

Fellow nominees in this category include rock legends Paul McCartney and surviving members of Nirvana, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, and Ozzy Osbourne. British acts David Bowie, Led Zeppelin, Coldplay and Mumford & Sons also received GRAMMY nominations in other categories this year.

 

http://www.grammy.com/files/pages/56thpresslist-final-secured.pdf

 

 

Roger Daltrey: The 69-year-old singer - who fronts the 60s rockers The Who - is a huge fan of the 'Supremacy' hitmakers, particularly when they perform live, and he believes they have a similar, yet more contemporary, sound to his group.

 

He said: ''I can certainly see us in a band like Muse, for instance - they're doing exactly what we did in the 1970s but with new technologies. They're great musicians and they perform brilliantly.''

Muse T2L Tour - Final Unofficial Estimated Box Office Numbers (October 2012-December 2013):

 

Total Gross Ticket Sales Revenue: US$126 million (£78 million)

 

Total Ticket Sales: 1,760,000

 

Concert Dates: 103*

 

Average Gross per Show: US$1.2 million

 

Average Attendance per Show: 17,000

 

Average Ticket Price per Show: US$71.00

 

*Excludes festival dates, club shows and special promotional gigs.

 

NB: Billboard does not rank Muse in its year-end 2013 Top 25 Tours Chart because only about 46 shows (with a gross of US$42 million-plus) out of 103 were officially reported to Boxscore during the past year. Pollstar however will make projections for unreported shows in its 2013 calendar year box office Top 50 worldwide tours chart which will be released in late December 2013/early January 2014. The latter chart will include data for the six Aussie shows.

Showbiz has never charted. It was released on Maverick Records in 1999 and has sold about 100k copies to date.

 

*This album was never released in the USA during 2001-2003 reportedly because record company execs thought Mr. Bellamy's falsetto on some of the tracks was not considered commercial. It was released in 2005 after the success of Absolution and finally charted in 2010 after the success of their album The Resistance.

 

yikes... Madness is the most popular? It's good, but... I feel ashamed to be an American. :indiff:

Muse s'amuse (great screen name !:D),

 

I'm doing the album classification for a French website and I'm looking for the exact sales for Muse's first four albums (Showbiz, OOS, Absolution, BH&R). I can't find all of them, mainly concerning Showbiz and OOS. I have no figures for 2007 and 2009 (except for The Resistance).

I have all the figures for 2012 and 2013.

 

I think Showbiz's sales should be around 315,000, 420,000 for OOS, 500,000 (maybe more) for Abso and 515,000 for BH&R.

 

The Resistance : 810,000

The 2nd Law: 417,000

 

Can you help me? :)

I think your sales figures may be a bit high for Showbiz and OOS and for BH&R a bit low. Total album sales for Muse in France through 2013 are around 2.8 million. Check the SNEPMUSIQUE web site for the latest album and single certifications in your country.
