Justin Bieber Banks a Whopping $300,000 Per Concert
Cha-ching! According to the Smoking Gun, pop sensation Justin Bieber earns a minimum of $300,000 per concert, making him one of the top touring musicians of the summer (as if you Beliebers didn't already know that).
At 16, Justin takes home three times as much as Selena Gomez, who banks $100,000 per show, and four times as much as Jordin Sparks, whose fee is $75,000. The Bieb even tops his Canadian pal Drake, who rakes in $155,000.
According to the site's chart, only five other artists earned more than this summer: Rascal Flatts, Kiss, Keith Urban, Brooks & Dunn and Sugarland. That's a lot of country artists! We wonder how Justin's summer paycheck would compare to Taylor Swift's...
While Justin's $300,000 guarantee is impressive, musicians like the teen star have the opportunity to make even more money per show. We spoke with a music booking agent and found out that, in general, an artist makes a percentage on top or versus his agreed guarantee, and if the show is successful, the percentage can end up being more than the guarantee.
Don't spend it all in one place, JB! What do you think of Justin's 'My World' tour earnings? Are you surprised by the numbers or did you think Justin made more than that per show? %Poll-53473%
