It was just announced that Jennifer Lopez has signed a residency-contract in Las Vegas. Lopez is set make an astounding $340,000 per show! In light of this news we decided to take a look back at some of the most successful Las Vegas performers from both the past and present.
1. Britney Spears
Britney Spears began a two-year residency show entitled Britney: Piece of Me at The AXIS at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in 2013. Britney’s two year contract requires her to perform 48 shows per year. Ticket prices range from $55-$525 and fans say her performances are electrifying. Spears makes $310,000 per show, so at the end of her two year stint, Britney is expected to have earned over $30 million. But she still can’t touch Celine Dion.
2. Celine Dion
Celine signed a three-year, 600-show contract with The Colosseum at Caesar’s Palace back in 2002 entitled A New Day. The average ticket price was $135. Due to her success, her contract was extended until 2007. Then in 2011, Celine signed on with Caesar’s Palace again for another three years. Celine was expected to perform 70 shows per year and sources say she earned $476,000 per show. Unfortunately, Celine has postponed all upcoming shows through March 2015 due to her ailing husband’s unstable condition.
