Ever wondered what Taylor Swift takes home from a live appearance? Quite a bit:
One thing that is clear is that the concert appears to have made money for everyone involved.That's what everyone else made, of course. Swift would have made at least four million dollars by pocketing the full revenue from the tickets - or, at least, the Corporate Taylor Swift.
The show earned $843,947 that will be split between the authority — hence taxpayers — and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Bucs get half of the profit under the team's stadium agreement with the authority.
Swift's fans bought $40,784 in merchandise during the show. They sipped and gobbled $244,626 in drinks and food at concession stands. The parents of fans and those old enough to drive paid $124,798 in parking.
It's quite a distance from Suede's current run of dates, which - as Mat Osman explained to a fan hoping for US dates - aren't quite as economically viable:
@texalese I doubt it Alese. TBH we're losing money on every show we do this way so we have to keep the tour shortish.— Mat Osman (@matosman) November 14, 2015
