Come on guys, they are a band and not a charity.

Its New Contest and actually live, not just streaming things that have already been sold before, if course it costs money.

You all underestimate how much of a shitload of money everyone uses because if not being able to tour.

Album sales and streaming don't make an artist rich.

It's all in touring and here mainly in selling merch.

My neighbour is a music producer so I know quite a few people in the music business (sadly, absolutely untreated to anything KPop, haha) and when I heard how little you earn for streams and how much you make with merch on a tour.

It's like 5 cents per 1000 streams of a song which then goes to the label, they take their share and the rest gets split between everyone who worked on the song. So there is hardly anything left for each individual.

Merch makes you a lot if money if you are a band that plays big venues and has fans who love merch.

Anyone on here knows who Depeche Mode is? (google them, haha). A friend was their tour photographer years ago on a Stadium tour. He told me they made an average of 800.000 bucks per night with merch!

Now think about all the money bands lose by not touring, especially smaller ones.

Sure, it's not as bad for bands like BTS who are already rich but still. All the money bighit doesn't earn though them is lost to invest in bts, other (New) projects/artists if them, and the company in the general (building, employees etc.).

it's perfectly fine to ask for money for the live stream.
