Bieber Money Chart

SEPTEMBER 28--Justin Bieber earns a minimum of $300,000 per concert, placing him near the top of the summertime tour earnings list, contract records show.

The 16-year-old performer earns more per gig than established acts like Sheryl Crow ($146,500), Weezer ($150,000), and Bret Michaels ($64,000). Bieber, though, does not command as much as Rascal Flatts ($702,500), Kiss ($500,000), or Keith Urban ($487,500).

A review of dozens of concert contracts shows that Bieber outearns all of his young contemporaries, banking twice as much as Drake ($155,000), three times that of Disney star Selena Gomez ($100,000), and four times as mush as “American Idol” winner Jordin Sparks ($75,000). An excerpt from a recent Bieber performance contract--which stipulates that payments be made to the company Bieber Time Touring, LLC--can be found here.

Like many acts, Bieber can earn more than his guaranteed $300,000 fee based on gross box office receipts (GBOR), a percentage of which is provided to the teen star post-concert. Additionally, when promoters provide Bieber with sound and lighting systems, that is a show cost for which the young performer is not responsible.

Bieber, represented by the powerhouse Creative Artists Agency, does not pay for an opening act, is guaranteed “100% Headline billing,” and closes all shows, according to his standard performance contract. (1 page)

Damn looks like next generation, all going gay, no repopulation, end of man kind, we're screwed.
my god... little 17 yr old *** is rich should be the title!
I think it's great that this young lesbian is doing so well...but who's gonna tell all the prepubescents? What boggles the mind is that there are hair care products in that "car wash clothe" do!...I say considering the possible career options this gig sure beats the 'wonderful world of fast food'...he done good. He's just annoying because he is a teenager and who doesn't want to slap the smug out of their sense of self entitlement?
He looks and sounds like a girl.
that's his hair? I thought he had a bucket on his head
ALL entertainers are a reflection of their fans. If people enjoy listening to a 16 year-old boy sing then why not? Many people make derogatory remarks about Jimi Hendrix. Of course THEY are all idiots. :-)
Frickin dork
This guy's hair makes him look like a ass clown.
He better enjoy it while it lasts since he has no talent. Bobby Sherman is a paramedic.
I'm trying very hard to be impressed. It isn't working.
If he is smart he will save that money... either that or end up on "Smoking Gun Presents..."
