Drake played a show in Washington, D.C. that made him the first rapper to make $5 million in revenue from a single concert in U.S. history.
His 2 concerts at the Capital One Arena, banked an average of $5.032 million in ticket sales, which amounts to $10.064 million!
The concerts drew 34,303 attendees, with tickets prices at $293.40 making his stop in D.C. the highest-grossing concert of Drake’s career.
Drake, while on his It’s All A Blur tour, made a stop in Detroit, and refused to end the show till fans got their money worth!
Drake and 21 Savage still had more to perform when the show went over the time restrictions. At $10K a minute, it cost $230K to play beyond the city’s curfew.
“It’s $10,000 a minute to stay in this building past curfew,” Drake told the audience. “I don’t give a f***. We’re doing this whole song, let’s go!”
