Drake makes $155,000 a show, but wait, there’s more


Drake pulls a hefty paycheck from each show, but how does he compare with other artists?

Concert promoters take note: if you want to book Drake, you’ll have to reach deep into your pockets.

Documents from Thesmokinggun.com reveal that the Young Money rapper pulls $155,000 per show, making him among the higher-paid acts in all of Hip Hop. But how does he compare with other acts?

Drake is far outdone by acts such as Rascal Flatts ($702,500), Kiss ($500,000), Keith Urban ($487,500) and Justin Bieber ($300,000). However, the Toronto emcee’s price eclipses Selena Gomez’ ($100,000), “American Idol” winner Kris Allen ($12,500), Sheryl Crow ($146,500) and Jordin Sparks ($75,000).

While the fattest paycheck for the 2010 U.S. summer concert season would have been banked by U2–had Bono not been temporarily crippled–several other touring acts are commanding hefty six-figures fees. According to contract documents obtained by Buster, here’s a sampling of what it costs to book some country, hip-hop, rock, and bubblegum acts:

Rascal Flatts $702,500
Kiss $500,000
Keith Urban $487,500
Drake $155,000
Selena Gomez $100,000
Kelly Pickler $40,000
Kris Allen $12,500
Chris Young $7,500

Currently, Drake is working on his sophomore album, Take Care.
