Rihanna had to cancel a few shows in her “Last Girl On Earth Tour,” because she had a couple of bad ticket sales. But believe me! Rihanna’s bank account or pockets aren’t hurting at all due to that! According to “The Smoking Gun,” Ri Ri is guaranteed $410,000 per show and the right to collect 80% of box office ticket receipts over $565,000. I don’t feel like doing math, but multiply, on average, about $600,000 times about 25 shows on her tour=THAT EQUALS A WHOLE LOTTA MONEY! Okay, did the math anyway, that’s about $15,000,000 she’ll be collecting from this tour!
This means Rihanna rakes in more dough for concerts than other performers like Justin Bieber, who makes $300,00/show, and Drake, who makes $150,00 a show. However, Beyonce is still on top, bringing in over $1.5 million a show. This is how artists make their money, cus record sales primarily go to the label and their left with scraps.
