Justin Bieber must thank YouTube for his success for sure, because apparently, he makes a buttload of cash. The Smoking gun says:
Justin Bieber earns a minimum of $300,000 per concert, placing him near the top of the summertime tour earnings list, contract records show.
The 16-year-old performer earns more per gig than established acts like Sheryl Crow ($146,500), Weezer ($150,000), and Bret Michaels ($64,000). Bieber, though, does not command as much as Rascal Flatts ($702,500), Kiss ($500,000), or Keith Urban ($487,500).
Like many acts, Bieber can earn more than his guaranteed $300,000 fee based on gross box office receipts (GBOR), a percentage of which is provided to the teen star post-concert. Additionally, when promoters provide Bieber with sound and lighting systems, that is a show cost for which the young performer is not responsible.
Bieber, represented by the powerhouse Creative Artists Agency, does not pay for an opening act, is guaranteed “100% Headline billing,” and closes all shows, according to his standard performance contract.
Is this even real? Sounds like its over exaggerated! $300k is a shit load of money to be earning, one night!!
