I'm surprised The Smashing Pumpkins made this list, & top tier as well.

Taylor Swift is with it of she performed naked.

No Doubt and Mumford & Sons not surprisingly seem wayyyy overpriced.

I'd pay $2 mil for naked TSwift.

If I pay 400k does it ******* Jimmy?

We should do a kickstarter to get corgs to do a private party. The venue will be pimped out with netphoria banners. When he arrives he will start screaming and refuse to do the show, then we will sue his ass and laugh about it in a jacuzzi with James Iha a year later.

Who is in?

A lot of performers on that list seem overpriced to me, so SP doesn't look that out of place in comparison to the others (unless of course we're considering the fact that it's just BC/WPC now).

Surprising to see Weezer below bands like the Pumpkins and STP.

I was 16 last time I saw Billy.
I wore a Zero shirt and some girl came up and poked me right where the star is.

Though I was too busy trying to see if I could catch Billy backstage.
Hero worship is bad.

Also, how can Billy still charge so much?

good find.

however, this may be the prices they get in US only, or the starting bids.

I know for a fact that the tour booking works on the bidding system till they reach the quota they worked out with the artist.

I also know for a fact Offspring plays shows in Europe for 40k.

A lot depends on the venue size, ie. they can't ask for a lot more than the venue size can make for them, the booker and the shows. 2000-2500 venues can not be over 50k.
