Touring has generated large dividends. When ticket and merchandise sales are added up, SM’s concert intake ranges from $25,000 to $125,000 a night. Last year alone, the label pulled in just under $15 million, showing growth from the $11 million it earned in 2008.
might not seem like much... but dude does around 200 shows a year...
Rigorous touring (204 shows in 2009, 202 in 2008, 196 in 2007), a steady stream of album releases, incessant self-promotion and merchandising, plus close interaction with SM’s dedicated fans have set it apart from other indie outfits.
one of the most dedicated hip hop artists out there and the most under appreciated artist too. shows so much love to his fans and dont give a f**k about the rest of the industry that doesnt give a s**t about him.
15mil a year for a independent artist is far and above anything any other person does. Jay and Kanye might make more per show... but if they actually put the time in to tour like Tech does they'd blow everyone out of the water... but they dont.
people gotta show tech some love. hell i think last year or something it went
3.) Tech N9ne
Lil Wayne hands down he get more shows/dates then anybody, when does jay-z have a show lol
nah Techs got Wayne beat touring wise.
