FOB Among Top Concert Money Makers

Posted by - 06:31 AM on 07/29/06
Fall Out Boy grossed about $9.8 million so far this year in concert sales.
MessageThe emergence of Fall Out Boy is good news for an industry needing new headliners. "We're very excited how the FOB tour went," Fall Out Boy manager Bob McLynn says. "They've built it from the ground up. Kind of surreal to see the same little band selling out all these arenas."

That's pretty amazing...I'm still in shock considering just over a year ago I was seeing them at House of Blues with a couple hundred people, but now you see them selling out arenas and amphitheaters.

Wow that's a boat load of cash. I wonder how much they actually get from that total.... and i'm sure merch sales are seperate also, so i bet they made a pretty penny off that considering every twelve year old girl in town wants a FOB tee when they go to the show.

OMG! FOB! :dry:

I saw them at the Pirates Cove in Cleveland and the Nyabhighi in Youngstown. Pretty much two hole in the whole bars. That's insane
