New Figures Reveal Gross Sales From Phish’s Baker’s Dozen

first_imgBillboard’s Current Boxscore aggregates information about high-selling concerts and runs, ranking them from highest grossing down. For this week’s column, Phish has topped the chart with their historic Baker’s Dozen run at Madison Square Garden. Baker’s Dozen spanned thirteen nights across July 21st through August 4th, and according to Billboard’s Boxscore, grossed $15,041,405 in total sales. With the shows’ estimated capacity of 236,278 people, 227,385 people attended the concerts across the boards, selling out five of the thirteen performances.Donut Sampler: Relive Phish’s Baker’s Dozen By Rewatching These Free Pro-Shot VideosWhile this figure is by no means chump change, the mean gross sales figure from across the thirteen shows ends up coming in at $1,157,031 per night. To put this figure into perspective, ranking fifth on the Boxscore column is Dead & Company with their sold-out June 24th performance at Citi Field in New York, which grossed a little over $4 million dollars in total for one night. However, this difference can be handily accounted for by ticket prices and venue size. For Dead & Company’s summer tour, tickets rang in at just about $150 or $40, while Phish’s four different price tiers across Baker’s Dozen ranging from $74 to $54 dollars, and Citi Field has about 6,500 more seats than Madison Square Garden’s 20,789 capacity.Some Internet Genius Compiled AUDs Of The Entire Baker’s Dozen Run In This Sweet WebsiteFor those of us who might need to revisit a math classroom, gross sales figures are the grand total of all sales for a given period—meaning it doesn’t account for the costs of producing the event itself. That said, the exact numbers related to profit and how much Phish actually made from the run are still disclosed.[H/T JamBase; Photo: Chad Anderson]last_img read more
