FAILURE: Rihanna Last Girl On Earth Tour

Ticket sales for Rihanna’s recent tour Last Girl On Earth,  proved to be rather disappointing. I suspect the dip in sales was due to her Rated R image.

Despite the poor sales and numerous cancellations, Rihanna managed to bank decent cents.

Rumour has it, Rihanna earned a standard rate of $410k (£250k) per show… regardless of box office sales.

It seems that most of her shows had received a substantial sponsorship fee as part of her endorsement deal. This meant that the cost of the tour was covered in advance.

Though her label will be the one feeling the pinch, I feel that it is time than an artist gets the pay check they deserve. Good thing Rihanna knows how to negotiate an endorsement deal. I suspect she would have been ripped off otherwise!
