Jay Z and Beyoncé Bank $150 Million From Touring
This duo is the definition of music business. While those that see them as competition are lounging on one breakthrough success, these two continue to break records and re-write history. Jay Z and Beyoncé have been on their hustle with their On The Run II tour and it’s definitely paying off.
According to Billboard the Carters have grossed more than $150 million in less than 50 stops. Their placement is fueled by recent engagements in Minneapolis, Detroit, and two sold-out shows for 86,000 fans at Chicago’s Soldier Field, which totaled $21.2 million in grosses. With the addition of these four dates, Beyoncé and JAY-Z’s co-headline trek exceeds $150 million grossed, rising to a total of $150.7 million. Across 29 shows in Europe and the U.S., total attendance has reached 1.4 million. There are 19 dates left to report to Boxscore before the tour closes on Oct. 4 at Seattle’s CenturyLink Field.
With six weeks of dates still scheduled, the publication reports that the dynamic duo could close out the tour grossing a whopping $250 million, surpassing the original On the Run tour by more than $140 million.
