YOu went to the Az concert right? they said and pretty well documented that he got 750,000 and his crew/stage folks got 250,000. So pony up that Mill, andhe'll give you his time, but in reality YOU wont make a dime....lol

matter fact peep this. U of A was stupid for only sellin seats to a sideline of the stadium. I would have opened that mugg up to sell all kinds of tickets.

Jay-Z's superstar presence was not enough to make a recent Arizona Stadium concert a success, as event promoters confirmedthe show posted a loss of $917,000.

The Last Smash Platinum Bash was organized by the Associated Students of the University of Arizona (ASUA), who paid Jay-Z $750,000 to co-headline the eventwith pop star Kelly Clarkson.

The strange pairing was not enough to entice potential concertgoers.

Arizona Stadium, which is known for football, had not hosted a concert in 32 years.

According to estimates, the student union gave away over 4000 tickets in hopes of securing valuable marketing deals with newspapers and radio stations.

Despite these issues, ASUA president Tommy Bruce blamed the failure on the Recession.

"Nobody predicted the economy would be the way it is now last May," he told the Arizona Daily Star.

In total, the concert cost $1,420,000, while tickets and merchandise purchases only posted $503,502.

The loss forced the ASUA to empty its$350,000 cash reserve to cover the debt.

According to the Arizona Daily Star, the Arizona University's bookstore will assist the ASUA in paying off the debt through another establishedemergency fund.

As a consequence, the UA Bookstore organization will also lower its contributions to the student group by $570,000 over the next 5 years.

At press time, Jay-Z's Blueprint 3 is tentatively aimed at a September 2009 release date.



EDIT: also, the folks sittin next to me had boot leg tickets or (uofa) sold seats two times over. They both had the same tickets.

not that simple-

for someone of Jays level its not like a regular call somebody and pay half up front to book -

95% they arent interested in the event depending on what it is...if its anything to do with a club or small show they prob wont even budge-

college stuff is a different ballgame- 750k!? thats ******ed...same for radio station type shows and private events....

theres a million booking agencys tho that you can contact and they will contact the right people -

Jay-z is the ultimate hustler. He doesn't even command the commercial success that justifies the music deals he's gotten.
