New York State Fair To Pay AEROSMITH A Guaranteed $1 Million
May 24, 2010, 9 years ago
According to Syracuse.com, the New York State Fair will pay AEROSMITH a guaranteed $1 million this summer, making the rockers the first to strut in that stratosphere in the fair’s history.
No other performer has ever been paid a guarantee that high. The highest was $800,000 paid to country stars RASCAL FLATTS and TAYLOR SWIFT in 2008.
If the August 26 grandstand show sells out, Aerosmith could earn about $300,000 more, too. The band will receive 85 percent of gross ticket sales over $160,000, according to the company that produces the fair’s concerts. Aerosmith will break another record at the fair. The $104 top-priced ticket is $34 higher than the fair has ever charged for a concert.
