Vegas boxscores for this week...

3 Cher
The Park Theater at Monte Carlo Resort & Casino
Las Vegas, Nev.
Aug. 2, 4-5, 9, 11-12, 16, 18-19, 2017
$4,189,699
30,768 / 37,800
9 / 0

This takes Cher's Vegas boxscore for the current residency to $13,636,129, with 97,150 tickets sold out of 115,139 tickets put on sale across 25 shows. The averages break down thus:

Gross per show: $545,445

This takes Cher's total Vegas boxscores across her two residencies of the modern era to $111,057,427, which remains the 4th highest sum (behind Britney, Elton and Celine).

You shouldn't have used JPGs for the artists' box score totals, but plain text in order to update them with time. Just saying cause jpegs can easily be shared elsewhere and if outdated may cause confusion.

I've already stated I will update once per quarter.

If they get used elsewhere and without credit, they deserved to be outdated anyway. :lol:

^ Wow! Fantastic numbers! As the show draws to a close, I suspect these numbers will remain strong and may even climb! Britney has 14 shows left - unfortunately, she will miss the million mark in terms of ticket sales. Based on most recent numbers, it looks like she'll finish up with between 910,000-915,000 ticket sales.

This means that Celine remains the ONLY act of the modern Vegas era to have topped the million mark in ticket sales for a single residency (Celine has actually done it twice, with both of her residencies). Celine's first residency had 2,827,423 ticket sales and her second (current) residency has ticket sales of 1,330,365 until June 2017 taking her total Vegas ticket sales to 4,157,788.

Elton came SUPER close with the 989,014 tickets he sold for his first Vegas residency The Red Piano.

Adele’s Been Offered A $20million Las Vegas Residency & We Are SO Here For It

Yaaaassss.

You don’t need us to tell you Adele is KIND OF a big deal, but the diva herself has been offered her very own Las Vegas residency for the princely sum of $20million!

Yes, Adele with her 15 Grammys can command $500,000 per show as the Wynn Hotel has offered her the 12-months megabucks deal – and if she says yes, we’re totally booking our flights to Vegas to see it.

A source told the Daily Mail, “In the last few years, we have seen massive stars performing on the strip and every major hotel wants to say they have the biggest star as their resident. Caesars Palace had Mariah Carey, Planet Hollywood has Britney Spears and we want Adele. Even at half a million bucks a show we are confident we would make a healthy return.”

And despite Adele having had to cancel some of her mammoth world tour due to vocal chord damage, the promoters aren’t worried about accommodating time off for ill health. The revealed. “Adele is a professional, and knows her own ability. And we are happy to be flexible in negotiations if it's needed in order to bring her on board.”

Adele would be following in the footsteps of the likes of Mariah Carey, Britney Spears and Celine Dion – and who wouldn’t say yes to $500k for a few hours performing?!

http://www.capitalfm.com/artists/adele/ ... 0-million/
$500k would put her on a par with Celine.

It would equate to a 40 show run.

^ I don't think Adele would be interested on doing a residency. She even turned Super Bowl down.

Adele has plenty of more interesting things to do with her life and career right now than settling down in a Vegas Residency. She may do it later in the future, I just don't see it now.

I think it suits her perfectly tbh.

She hates the traveling associated with touring, she's in a "down time" as far as recording goes - keeps the $$$ rolling in.

I know she hates traveling and touring and she even seems quite lazy, so in that sense the concept would suit her, but do you think she'd be down to live in US / Vegas?

Also I think she has very few material under her belt, she may still release another huge album / era and tour before "settling down", so far there isn't one single artist that went to Vegas during their peak, all Celine, Elton, J.Lo, Britney, etc went there long after they had peaked and I think Adele is right now in her "Falling into you" / "Lets talk about love" or "Baby one more time" / "Oops I did it again" eras, she's at the peak of her career, there's more things to explore at the moment.

^ People forget that Celine signed her contract in 2002 - and she was still very much one of the biggest current acts in the world (with the #5 selling album of the year worldwide).

Anyway, no Vegas boxscores in this week's Billboard Boxscores list.

Britney soon leaves Vegas! Only 5 dates left for Britney's "Piece of me" show to end. It finally ends this December!

The final gross will likely end at $134million. The show also visited Europe and Asia, She took the show separately on a summer tour this year that visited Arenas, Stadiums and Parks in Asia which was estimated to have grossed $24million from 11 dates, the show also visited the UK as part of the 2016 Apple Music Festival.
