[Blind Gossip] We have told you before that singers/bands make more money touring than they do by selling records or albums. While they tour, they are always looking for ways to boost their revenues per venue. One of those offerings is a “Meet and Greet.” Fans who have already paid upwards of $100 or more for a concert ticket will pay additional money to meet the star and have their photo taken with them. Some people pay literally hundreds of dollars for the “privilege” of spending a few seconds of one-on-one time with their idol and photo proof of their meeting.
This one young singer’s head is getting much too big. For the Meet and Greet on her next tour, she wanted to charge $1000 per person. She also did not want to spend the time on on-on-one photos. Instead, she wanted handlers to herd a dozen fans at a time into a group photo with her. While her handlers vetoed the $12,000-per-minute suggestion, she will still be charging an outrageous amount of money and keeping individual fan contact down to a minimum.
Amount that YOU would spend for a M&G with her:
