On The Run Tour Will Reportedly Pay Beyonce And Jay Z $84 Million
Beyoncé and Jay Z might be headed for a split, but hip-hop’s royal couple has an $84 million reason to stay together for now.
That’s how much their “On the Run” summer concert tour is paying them, Page Six has learned.
With breakup rumors swirling, the duo is currently rocking through a 21-stadium tour, and music industry sources tell us they’re being paid $4 million per gig, guaranteed and independent of ticket sales — totalling $84 million for the couple to share.
Meantime, their tour is expected to bring in more than $100 million in ticket sales. By comparison, the Rolling Stones raked in $126 million from 23 shows last year in what was the sixth- highest-grossing tour of 2013.
The Post reported that Beyoncé was shopping for a $21.5 million apartment in Chelsea without her husband last month, but the asking price will be chump change once her tour with Jay Z ends Sept. 13.
They’re scheduled to play Seattle on Wednesday. Some stops on the tour are expected to hit $5 million in sales.
Buzz over a possible split between Bey and Jay began after the rapper got into an epic, embarrassing elevator fight at the Standard High Line with Beyoncé’s little sister Solange in May.
Rumors swirled that the fight might have kicked off because Solange thought Jay has strayed.
Is $84 million enough for you to stay with your alleged dirty dog husband?
