Monetizing Metal

Iron Maiden has figured it out (and shown prog the way):

Iron Maiden hired a BitTorrent analytics company called Musicmetric to determine where piracy of their music was highest, then scheduled tours of those countries. They made millions touring Central and South America.

And sometimes a smart band can be so popular that even tribute bands will go in and tour the places that remain.
