Entertainers Paid The Most Money In Vegas

beyonce-79551_960_720Many of the successful people in entertainment come to Vegas at one time or another. Some are regulars and others show up only now and then. The big names, the ones we all know, can make an incredible amount of money for their performances. These famous folks are one way casinos draw people inside their four walls, hopefully to gamble while there.

According to, Fergie can pick up a cool $100,000 just for showing up at certain clubs. I wouldn’t mind making a living for just showing up, would you?

Some of the other highest paid acts in Las Vegas are David Copperfield, Brittany Spears, Lady GaGa, Wayne Newton, Beyoncé, Celine Dion and Jennifer Lopez.

Get this. Brittany Spears reportedly gets $475,000, not per year, but per performance. That’s about $316, 667 per hour with each show at 90 minutes. This makes a $15 minimum wage seem reasonable.

Celine Dion makes more than Brittany Spears at $476,000 per show. I guess Brittany better get a new agent, huh?

Jennifer Lopez, is low on the scale with a reported payment of only $350,000 per show. Poor Jennifer.

These stars make these incredible amounts only because we are willing to pay the ticket prices. This is capitalism at its best. It’s true, you get what you pay for and any of these shows will be worth the ticket price.
