It wasn’t a sellout and it had to be split 7 ways. They only did 12 dates.Ewokguy15 wrote:Plus all the $$$ he made from their sold out arena tour in 2015.Hugo wrote:Next to no one here in Portugal earns £600,000 in their lifetime, let alone in four years.

Average Wages: 2015Short Description: Minimum wage statistics published by Eurostat refer to monthly national minimum wages. The data shown here apply to the situation on 1st of January each year. In some countries the basic national minimum wage is not fixed at a monthly rate but at an hourly or weekly rate. For these countries the hourly or weekly rates are converted into monthly rates. The national minimum wage is enforced by law, often after consultation with the social partners, or directly by national intersectoral agreement (this is the case in Belgium and Greece). The national minimum wage usually applies to all employees, or at least to a large majority of employees in the country. Minimum wages are gross amounts, that is, before deduction of income tax and social security contributions. Such deductions vary from country to country.
In Belarus our weekly average is around £80 a week, which brings us to a figure of £200,000 in 50 years.If you worked 37.5 hours at £10.00 per hour for 50 years, you would earn £975,000.
If you worked 39.0 hours at £10.00 per hour for 50 years, you would earn £1,014,000.
That is exactly what I have been thinking for the longest time as well. Let's just say someone like Duffy, who hasn't released anything in years. I mean, I really can't see her going back and getting an office job somewhere.ludichris wrote:I often wonder how do formerly successful acts make money after their music careers are over? Regular job? Investing in property? Living off royalties and odd gigs here and there?
In 2012, 2013 and 2014 - the Sunday Times Rich List estimated she had earned over £6 million from her music. She'll never need to work again.Remember Duffy? You must do - because just by watching her old videos you've netted her SIX FIGURES
She may have slipped off the radar recently, but singer Duffy is still raking in the cash thanks to her YouTube videos
Duffy is approaching 100 million views of her music videos on YouTube - and all those fans could have netted her over £160,000.
YouTube users had watched the Bangor singer's videos a total of 99.2 million times by June 9 on her official channel.
According to StatSheep, which monitors the video sharing website, that could have earned as much as £162,146 in advertising revenue.

Well the assumption of Wayne’s post is that the trends will continue, but they won’t. In 20 years time I doubt anyone is listening to ‘Mercy’, but I agree in principle that she should still be earning enough money at the moment.Spartan wrote:Even though that’s a lot of money for Duffy, it’s all comparative too the lifestyle you’ve led. I doubt that will tide her over for as long as we think.
