Creed: Summer Live Preview 2010
Ticket prices: $10-$20 (Purchase tickets here)
Last year's reunion tour didn't meet expectations, but it wasn't the complete disaster that some expected. The tour picked up steam as Live Nation marketing programs kicked in.
Outlook: A price-driven marketing platform will help the band top last year's run on average, though it's playing fewer shows. When this is done, lead singer Scott Stapp and guitarist Marc Tremonti's Alter Bridge will resume their respective careers.
