Elton John Is Probably The Highest Paid Las Vegas Headliner

I don’t exactly know who’s paid what to perform on the Las Vegas strip, but I can’t imagine it’s more than Elton John.

Surpassing Britney Spears’ $475K per show, Elton John’s new deal secures him over $500K per show, 88% of sales at the door and has to sign off on ticket price changes, reports TMZ.

Once more, The Colosseum where he performs The Million Dollar Piano houses 4200 seats – Brit Brit’s Axis theater seats 4600.

Elton just started another string of shows this month scheduled through April.

You know EJ won’t allow Vegas’ newest HBIC Mariah Carey to surpass that figure, so it looks like Vegas has a new reigning queen, dahling!

No tears to damn you when jealousy burns.
