While Jay Z was on tour there were NUMEROUS reports of awful ticket sales, un-sold out arenas, tickets selling as low as $10..everyone thought, "what the heck is going on?" Why wasn't his show selling? I was fully expecting him to be LOSING money at that rate and with all the bad reports.
To my surprise, it's quite the opposite. lol SORRY JAY. I should've had more faith in you. Despite show cancellations and reports of bad ticket sales, turns out Jay Z was actually racking in about $1,396,823 PER SHOW. Grossing a total of $44,698,354 over the course of 32 dates. Although this isn't even the final number, it looks like Jay and Live Nation will walk away with a decent profit.
Of course this is nothing compared to the wife, Beyonce's Formation Tour brought in $210 million just in ticket sales alone! But you know, not everyone can be Beyonce..
