Jay-Z’s 4:44 tour was plagued by show cancellations and reports of low ticket sales, but it still ended up becoming Jay’s highest-grossing solo tour just three dates in.
Now that it’s over, a recent report by Pollstar reveals the tour had grossed more than $24 million ahead of the final stop in Los Angeles on Dec. 21.
“With $24.3 million grossed on the headline shows reported (an average of $1.43 million gross per night) and data from 17 headline gigs outstanding, more reporting would almost surely put Jay Z into the Top 50 of Pollstar’s Year End Worldwide Tours chart,” Pollstar reported.
The trade publication went on to break down the numbers of individual shows, including the Nov. 26-27 Brooklyn dates (grossed $4.4 million combined); the Nov. 12 Miami concert ($1.7 million); and the sold out Dec. 2 stop in Uniondale, New York ($1.31 million).
Out of the reported dates, the average number of tickets sold was 13,721 per night, with an average price of $104 per ticket.
Though we’re still waiting for the final numbers to come in, it looks like Jay and Live Nation will walk away with a decent profit.
Good for them.
