Jay-Z Made $9 Million In Two Weeks: Men Lie, Women Lie (Numbers Don’t)
According to The Boom Box, the tour grossed over $9 million in two weeks.
To give some added perspective on how much an artist can make in two weeks of touring, Jay-Z’s tour, which featured Jeezy and Trey Songz grossed a total of $9,731,218 between March 11-24. Hov’s recent deal with concert-giant Live Nation, who famously signed him to a “360 deal” worth a reported $150 million, and also organized his 2008 tour with Mary J. Blige, which grossed $34.5 million, is likely responsible for the rapper’s high live performance profits.
