Drake’s music tour, “It’s All A Blur,” featuring the talented 21 Savage, has taken the world by storm, with sold-out shows at every stop on the schedule. Recently, the superstar rapper delivered two electrifying performances at Washington, D.C.’s renowned Capital One Arena during the last weekend.
Breaking all records, each of these shows raked in a staggering $5.032 million in revenue, marking the first time an arena concert has ever surpassed the $5 million milestone. While this is a remarkable feat for Drake, it’s worth noting that artists like Taylor Swift, Morgan Wallen, and Beyonce are currently achieving even higher earnings, with stadium shows grossing well over $5 million per event.
Drake, however, remains no stranger to making history in the music industry. With his recent D.C. performances, he now holds the prestigious title of being the first rapper to generate over $5 million in revenue from a single arena concert in the United States.
Touring Data reports reveal that the Capital One Arena concerts amassed a grand total of $10.064 million from ticket sales across the two nights, attracting an impressive audience of 34,303 attendees. The average ticket price was $293.40, showcasing the immense popularity and demand for Drake’s live performances.
This monumental achievement also marks the highest-grossing concert of Drake’s career to date, further solidifying his position as a powerhouse in the music industry. The rapper even referenced the $5 million earnings during a previous tour stop in Montreal while performing his hit song “Started From the Bottom,” where he proudly rapped about securing a $500,000 paycheck for a single show.
