I will agree to your reply Paul... and thats no the only way Billboard determines it, just part of it....lots of it is gross sales, profit, etc. Just letting you guys know why a promoter would still have a sold out poster still made....Oh and yes there may be 2 Wilco posters actually used for advertisement.
Paul if a promoter produces a sell out show then yes they get credit. That is actually one way that Billboard mag determines its top promoters. Yes the band is the one pulling in the ticket sales but if a promoter books the band and brings it to the venue then they must be doing something right, huh. that is what Scrojo and I are talkinbg about...hype...your venue gets a sold out show....kudos to you, you let everyone know about it...make the ones that dont have tickets feel left out so that next time they might pay more attention.
