AB's back on the Boxscore this week and well, here's what happened.

Alter Bridge, In Flames, Devour the Day Starland Ballroom Sayreville, N.J. May 2, 2017 $49,833 1,471 / 2,000 1 / 0 $40, $37.50 The Bowery Presents

On the one hand, making $50k in revenue in a headlining show in the US is pretty good for a band like AB nowadays. On the other hand, they played this very venue three years back and did much better in attendance and revenue. What happened? Did the $8 price increase turn people away? Why promoters think that it would be a great idea to increase the ticket price that much if AB did not sell it out, but came close to selling it out back in 2014? This was how they did back in 2014 in this very same venue.

Alter Bridge, Like a Storm, California Breed Starland Ballroom Sayreville, N.J. Oct. 10, 2014 $58,102 1,962 / 2,000 1 / 0 $32, $29.50 AEG Live

On the other hand, here's what Sevendust did in the same venue.

Sevendust Starland Ballroom Sayreville, N.J. June 22, 2017 $41,329 1,573 / 2,000 1 / 0 $35, $29.50 The Bowery Presents

I'm surprised with the exception of back around 2008, I think, that AB and Sevendust have not done a tour together. They should be touring together more honestly since they know each other pretty well. I think the UK and Europe would welcome Sevendust with open arms as a support for an AB tour there and an AB/Sevendust co-headlining tour in the states could do some good business.

Here's another result of AB's show in Kansas City.

Alter Bridge Harrah's VooDoo Lounge North Kansas City, Mo. Dec. 12, 2017 $15,839 869 / 1,398 1 / 0 $65, $36.50 C3 Presents/Caesars Entertainment

Sadly, second time was not the charm for them at Kansas City as they could not sell out the same venue that they did earlier in January 2017.

Thought about going to KC. But a weekend show in St Louis was much better for me. I think The Pageant was pretty full.

Ok, now that I think about looking at this week's boxscore. How AB did in terms of generating revenue at Starland Ballroom is pretty darn good in comparisons with the below. The following below are relatively somewhat known bands that drew in less money than what AB drew in at the Starland Ballroom in 2017.

The Pretty Reckless Starland Ballroom Sayreville, N.J. Nov. 10, 2017 $48,850 1,975 / 1,975 1 / 1 $30, $25, $12.50 The Bowery Presents

Seether, Shaman's Harvest, The Dead Deads Starland Ballroom Sayreville, N.J. Nov. 29, 2017 $44,226 1,791 / 2,000 1 / 0 $35, $30.50, $10.55, $9.59 The Bowery Presents

Hollywood Undead, Butcher Babies, Demrick Starland Ballroom Sayreville, N.J. Nov. 24, 2017 $38,040 1,644 / 2,000 1 / 0 $30, $25, $12.50 The Bowery Presents

Hatebreed, Dying Fetus, Code Orange Starland Ballroom Sayreville, N.J. Dec. 9, 2017 $33,130 1,876 /2,000 1 / 0 $25, $20, $10 The Bowery Presents

I Prevail, Escape The Fate, The Word Alive, We Came As Romans Starland Ballroom Sayreville, N.J. Oct. 19, 2017 $30,852 1,381 / 2,000 1 / 0 $27, $24, $12 The Bowery Presents

Theory of a Deadman, Ayron Jones and the Way Starland Ballroom Sayreville, N.J. Oct. 18, 2017 $20,406 1,229 / 2,000 1 / 0 $23, $20, $10, $9.59 The Bowery Presents

It's the weirdest thing. I hear a lot of songs from bands like The Pretty Reckless, Seether, I Prevail, and Theory of a Deadman on the active rock radio station I listen to frequently, and yet, those bands did not generate as much revenue as AB did in the same venue in a big area like New Jersey.

Same here. Every one of those bands, The Pretty Reckless, Seether, Hollywood Undead, and Hatebreed, and ToaD get lots of airtime on our stupid "hard rock" station while AB gets, exactly, zero airplay. I call to request AB and they say, "We don't play them". It's such a damn joke.

No wonder AB rarely comes here and MK doesn't come at all.
