True or False: Lil Wayne Sold More Concert Tickets than Jay-Z

- By Bossip Staff Categories: Making it Rain on Them Hoes, News, True or False?


According to sources, Wayne racked in over 40 million on concerts alone.  Flip the hood for more.

Wayne grossed  42 million dollars in revenue from concert sales, outselling the Jay-Z and Mary J Blige Tour which grossed 34 million:

According to Lil Wayne’s tour producer and tour business manager, Shawn Gee, seventy-eight concerts held in North America from Dec. 14, 2008, through Sept. 6, 2009, grossed approximately $42 million and drew nearly 804,000 fans.

The second highest-grossing rap tour that Billboard has tracked was Jay-Z’s 2008 jaunt with Mary J. Blige, which grossed $34.6 million and drew 310,694 concertgoers to 28 shows, according to Billboard Boxscore. Kanye West’s 2008 Glow In the Dark tour comes in third, having pulled in $30.8 million from 49 concerts that attracted 507,853 fans. (Billboard)

We guess Wayne should have no problems fathering every girl in the world if he keeps outselling camel’s a**.

    Who cares really…not like they sharing the wealth with us….

  • The Truth

    Ya numbers fuzzy 42million over 78 shows is less than 34.6million over 28 shows…Wayne did more than double the shows and only grossed 7.4million more…Men lie, Women Lie, #s dont…

  • Me

    3rd Exactly the truth…. If jay had done more shows he would have outsold him….

  • The Truth

    Wayne made $538,461.00 per show Hov & Mary made $1,235,714.00 per show and if they split it 50/50 they grossed $617,857.00/person still $79,396.00 more than Wayne per show…

  • E

    Yeah, numbers dont lie but u left out one important number. Wayne had over 800,000 fans and Jay-z had 317,000.

  • come on

    @E ———still no comparison. J is the man.

  • kp

  • The Truth

    “Yeah, numbers dont lie but u left out one important number. Wayne had over 800,000 fans and Jay-z had 317,000.”

    E please divide 800000/78 (10,256) for Wayne and 317,000/28 (11,321.00) for Hov/Mary…Yup reading is fundamental SMH!

  • kp

    and everybody didnt know the reason for kanye’s arrogancy bk then so that could explain y his numbers were as such but he still did that he has his good luck charm he shld be dng mre numbers in the years to come plus he did explain himself on Bey’s track “EGO”


    Uh who cares!

  • http://bossip mybaad>> if u dont know the WHOLE story, u kno NO story at all

    jus wait to see HOV’s number’s after this blueprint 3 tour.. its gonna be sick!!!!

  • Mary

    People look @ numbers rather than the statistics & details of this, Wayne did 78 shows verses MJB/Jayz 28 tour dates. This is an invalid comparison, because if Mary/Jayz concert would of done 78 shows, that tour would of grossed over 100mil, & lets not forget the Mary/Jayz tour had “the dream” as an opening act while wayne had…keyshia cole, keri hilson, souljia boy, bobby v, the dream, & tpain…all those acts & only 42mill????mmmm…MJB/Jayz wins hands down!

  • Lady J

    Umm……why are yall beefing about this???? Who cares!!!! Glad that two black men with no education can pull in millions of dollars off of shear talent!!! Now, that’s an accomplishment!!!

  • drephilly

    If you do 50 more shows and manage only to make 7.6 mill more are you really making more money or are you seriously being under paid
