Most recently, I've seen Paramore headline:

2012: Terminal 5 (3500 capacity, not sold out)
2011: Penn's Landing (10,000 capacity, not sold out)
2009: Hammerstein (4000 capacity, sold out)
2008: Convention Hall (4000 capacity, sold out)
2007: Starland (2500 capacity, sold out)
2007: Knitting Factory (400 capacity, sold out)

I've seen them a few times in other capacities like festivals, but those are their four most recent US headline tours.

They make a LOT more money overseas playing to thousands (and sometimes tens of thousands), and Hayley also makes a good amount independent of what the band makes. She's also probably a lot smarter with her money than a lot of other acts.
Terminal 5, not sold out? You're crazy

It may have sold out at showtime, but most certainly not before.

I was surprised, too, but I can tell you for a fact that I went with friends who showed up and bought tickets at the door.
Did they play there this year? In 2011, they played FBR15 which was a $50 and sold it out. More tickets opened up at the door because of guest list cancellations.
