    That must be the net amount they earned because it was reported, (and of course I forget where), after the tour ended, that they grossed over $94 million. Anyone else remember seeing that stat? All I know is they got $500 from me for 3 shows and it was worth every penny!

    Now I remember. The info is on the front page of van-halen.com. It says $93 million. What's a million bucks give or take....

    $35 million must be net, but that seems like a big drop-off.

    I wonder if the $35 million is for 2007 -OR- 2008. I didn't catch it in the article, but maybe that number was for the 2007 year only. Or for the 2008 year only. The VH tour basically started in the 2nd half of 2007 and ended in the first half of 2008.

    I think that's net profit.... which is still crazy cause that means expenses were around $60 million! I scrolled to the front to see who won, it was the police with $115 million, but it said they made $200 million on ticket sales. Yea, these numbers must be profit

    35 million must be how much VH was paid for the tour, not how much the tour earned. Still, it doesn't seem high enough for a tour that grossed over 90 million.

    Wasn't Van Halen paid a set amount per show, rather than a percentage of the gate? I read somewhere early on that they were getting $900,000+ per night.

    So the adults took home $11.5 Million each, and cut the kid a check for $500 Grand and told him not to spend it all in one place?

    the forbes list is done annually. this # is for 2007 and since half the tour took place in 2008 well you only get half the income.

    The first page of the article states that it is going from June 1, 2007 to June 1, 2008 so it would include both halves.

    The Police made that much more than Van Halen? I bet if they would have had Mike and really did it up right, VH could have outsold the Police.

    Best I can remember back in the 80's VH were much bigger than the Police.

    the Police played many more shows than VH, hence more money. This has nothing to do with Mikey as all the VH shows were vitually sold out.

    it's got to be net profit, let don't forget that uncle sam probably got a large chunk in taxes.

    Floor seats & lower level seats for The Police were about $100 more expensive than for Van Halen, in addition to more shows.
