Ever wonder how much artists get paid to play a concert?

The website Pricenomics got a hold of a leaked list of the asking price for a whole slew of musicians.  It's a fascinating read.

Only eight names on the list command a cool million dollars just to show up:

Bruce Springsteen

Madonna

BonJovi

Dave Matthews Band

Justin Timberlake

Justin Bieber

Taylor Swift

James Taylor

James Taylor?  James Taylor.  I was just as surprised as you. On the plus side, while doing a google search for "james taylor million dollars" I found this video of a different guy named James Taylor covering Barenaked Ladies' "If I Had A Million Dollars"
