Way more, right? This was Englishtown, and there were reportedly 100,000 shirtless fans there. In 1992 alone, they played 13 stadium-sized shows; add those two together and you’re pretty close to a million.

You can do the math. Getting the numbers would require tedious research, and more than some guesswork, but this isn’t the Drake equation: there are actual figures available. The back of the envelope looks like (Number of shows) X (Average attendance) but that’s leaving quite a bit out; you need some sort of coefficient in there to account for repeat customers. The math is doable, though.

How many was it?

    Is a shit load somewhere in between? We don’t have those other measures in Oz, possibly a result of switching to the decimal system in the middle of the last century.

    • If you wanted further graduations, crapload (on the lesser) and fuckton (on the greater) would be acceptable.
