Top 10 Highest Paid Musicians of 2010
« on: July 26, 2010, 03:48:05 PM »
     
10. Black Eyed Peas - $48 million
Since crossing over to the  mainstream in the early 2000s, the Black Eyed Peas have been everywhere  from the Super Bowl pre-game show to discussing politics on CNN. A  worldwide tour that took them from Switzerland to Mexico brought in  $800,000 a night, while the band’s openness to endorsement deals led  them to ink commitments with Target, Honda, Bacardi and AppleWhat  does it take to become one of the highest-paid musicians of the 2010s? A  career that peaked in the 1980s. Nearly half of the artists that make  up this year’s list of the top-earning music acts have been around long  enough that they could have appeared on the soundtrack to Back to the  Future. Here are top ten earning musicians of 2010.
 
9. Kenny Chesney - $50 million
Chesney continued his reign atop  the country music industry by out-touring everyone else. His 2009 tour  grossed $71 million and brought in an average of $1.6 million every  night, nearly doubling the box office receipts of his closest  competitor, Keith Urban. Prominent sponsorships with companies like  Corona and MasterCard keep tour costs down, making the tours even more  profitable.
 
8. Madonna - $58 million
The Material Girl isn’t quite  ready to cede her spot in pop music’s hierarchy to Lady Gaga or Britney  Spears just yet. The 52-year-old singer had the fourth highest-grossing  tour of 2009, bringing in $6 million a night and $138 million overall.  An episode of the Fox hit sitcom Glee, which featured cast members  singing several of her songs, added to her already high profile and  cushioned her significant earnings from publishing royalties.
 
7. Lady Gaga - $62 million
A newcomer to the Celebrity 100,  Lady Gaga broke down the door to fame with outlandish outfits and  quirky videos, including one that featured her and Beyonce poisoning an  unappreciative boyfriend. With a 106-date tour that grossed $95 million,  Lady Gaga is also a marketer’s dream, teaming up with Polaroid, Virgin  Mobile, Monster Cable and Viva Glam.
 
6. Jay-Z - $63 million
Jay-Z likes to say he’s not a  businessman; he’s a business, man–and it’s not idle boasting. The  rapper-turned-mogul retains his crown as hip-hop’s cash king thanks to a  new album and investments in the 40/40 nightclub chain, the Broadway  show “Fela!” and the New Jersey Nets basketball team. Jay-Z’s biggest  boost comes from his Blueprint 3 tour, which grossed over $1 million per  concert this year. He still makes less than wife Beyoncé.
 
5. Britney Spears - $64 million
Not long ago, most of the  entertainment world had written Britney Spears off as a celebrity  flameout. But over the last year Spears logged the fifth  highest-grossing tour in the world, bringing in $130 million in gross  box office receipts by playing 98 dates. High-profile endorsement deals  with Elizabeth Arden and Candies’ prove that the public expects Spears  to stay in the spotlight for good.
 
4. Bruce Springsteen -$70 million
The poet laureate of New Jersey  continues to connect with fans around the world. Backed by the E Street  Band, Springsteen sold more than 2 million tickets on his world tour,  which grossed $167 million, enough to make it the third highest-grossing  tour in the world. Heavy radio play on classic rock stations and a  steady-selling backlist adds to his bottom line.
 
3. Beyonce Knowles -$87 million
One half of the most famous  couple in hip-hop (Jay-Z, No. 6, is the other half), Beyoncé continues  to expand her business empire beyond music. Endorsement deals with  companies ranging from Nintendo to L’Oreal and her growing House of  Dereon fashion line bring in millions of dollars per year on top of the  $86 million she grossed from a 93-stop world tour.
 
2. AC/DC - $114 million
This Australian heavy metal group has been shaking audiences all night  long since 1973 and shows few signs of stopping. Second only to U2 in  band tour earnings, AC/DC grossed a staggering $226 million on a  worldwide tour that included 99 dates and brought in more than $2  million a night.
 
1. U2 - $130 million
The world’s biggest rock band,  U2 launched a massive world tour in 2009 that has brought in more than  $311 million in gross box office receipts. Each tour stop brings in $10  million in gross ticket sales. Add in lucrative merchandise sales, heavy  radio play and a steady-selling back catalog, and you have the  highest-earning band on the planet.
