The ARCADE FIRE, one of the headliners of this year’s Lollapalooza can be hired for 150 thousand dollars. Other alternative rock darlings, QUEENS OF STONE AGE and ARCTIC MONKEYS, can be hired for less than 100k. The KINGS OF LEON cache and the new media hype MUMFORD & SONS can exceed 500,000.
Speaking of headliners, BON JOVI and BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN, two of Rock In Rio’s biggest names last year, however, do not stamp their passports by fewer than a few digits. The AVENGED SEVENFOLD, which collects fans and haters in the same proportion and played at the same festival can go for 10% of this amount.
There are many injustices. While David Guetta can win up to 250,000 obamas to play on his sound equipment, the essential BOB DYLAN influences influences charges more or less the same amount. B.B. KING, despite his most recent shows, for everything he has already given, could fetch more than his hundred thousand dollars. And, most impressive, you can invite one of the most expressive guitarists of our time, owner of a unique and unmistakable style, TOM MORELLO (RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE) to play on his birthday for less than 20 thousand.
And in the list of stars that charge up to 30,000, we can find almost all those who were cover magazine in the 1990s and early 2000s.
In the list, as you can see, there are no metal bands. On the other hand, there are even attractions that have nothing to do with music, as is the case of the duo Myth Busters (from a television show).

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
