Hip-Hop Rumors: What Musical Heavyweights Did Drake’s “Club Paradise” Tour Dethrone?

Drake’s Club Paradise tour earned a reported $42.6 million, almost double what Jay-Z and Kanye West earned on their The Throne tour. But don’t feel bad for Yeezy and Jay-Z, Drake had to work three times as hard for that money.

According to PollStarPro, “The Throne” has made $27.1 million so far this year off of touring and have tore down 22 shows with an average ticket price of $82.44. Drake has had 63 shows with an average ticket price of $60.75.

  • Nemesis_Enforcer

    How is this “dethroning”?

    Analogy: If I made 40 milli on 3 shows and you made 41 milli on 50 shows, by Sydney’s logic (only looking at the total) you win. Even though you had to do 47 more shows to out gross me. That’s dumb.

    Drake grossed 697K per show.
    Jay & Ye grossed 2.1 milli per show.

    So who won?

  • yea but jay an ye money goes intheir pocket, birdman fina rape his. Espcially when most artist on YMCMB get 360 deals. Plus he had to do a couple months more of work. An jay is worth half a billion dollars, ye aint too far behind his money long.. He is lightyrs away from takin over the throne..Yall reachin lol

    • dont forget jayz and kanye tour was pretty much just that jayz and kanye …. Drakes tour also included Meek Mill, Wacka Flocka, French Montana & J Cole … and im sure there were more surprises depending on where they were performing ……

      • true so he aint even make tht much cuz his money had to get split like 5 diff ways.. Thts wht the tour grossed not js him, ppl dont understand tht

  • rodger waters is a beast, pink floyd is the best musical act all time.

  • WillVetterGoodin

    told you canadians dont fight.

  • All haters welcome women lie men lie numbers don’t. YMCMB we run the streets

  • Tony G.

    These are those dumb ass stats that they tried to use years ago saying Weezy was making more than Jay on tours when he was doing like 60 more shows a yr…as in this case its less work, more money and a better show.

  • pockets_hot_from_pepperoni

    pretty sad one of the beatles is below drake

  • this is bad media… Watch The Throne began in 2011 and these stats are for 2012. Look at the overall numbers… And nobody performed on the Watch the throne tour but Jay Z and Kanye, there are a bunch of acts on Drakes tour (Waka Flocka, 2 Chains, Meek Mill, French Montana, J cole, etc) … I would think ahh would do better then to discredit our hip hop greats
