In all the hours of your lifetime that you’ve spent thinking about EverythingAdam, either in line waiting for a coveted front row Glam Nation concert spot, or when you’ve been alone in your car or living room listening to that Rock Master’s voice, have you ever tried to figure out how much Adam earned this past year? Take in his share of all the digital and physical sales of his For Your Entertainment album and what he earned from the Glam Nation Tour and special appearances, and whattaya come up with? (Sorry, couldn’t resist!) Now we’re getting some insight, thanks to Zack O’Malley Greenburg and The Beat Report, from Forbes.com.
It’s being reported that Adam earned a rocking $6 million last year, sharing the second spot on the list with Chris Daughtry. We all know Carrie Underwood is the list topper. In fact, she earned more than the next five on the list combined. I’m sure Eber is thankful he continued to support Adam, even when he wasn’t too happy about it. Remember the Idol family episode where they showed him telling Leila that a little success would be a good thing?! Well, he’s sure got it now. The other thing I hope he has a good tax/investment advisor!!
The following paragraph from Greenburg’s article talks about Adam:
Adam Lambert and Chris Daughtry share the second spot on our list, each raking in $6 million. Lambert, the runner up in Idol’s seventh season (it was the eighth season – Carol), performed 115 shows around the world in 12 months; Daughtry played 53 dates in support of album Leave This Town. The top ten money-making Idol alums combined to earn $50 million over the past year alone.
Ummm, Daughtry earned $6 million from an album and 53 shows, and Adam earned $6 million from an album and 116 shows?? Anyone else out there afraid they may raise the ticket price for Adam’s next tour?!?
