It was back in July that Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa stopped in Atlanta during their “The High Road Tour” and the Atlanta Business Chronicle has revealed just how profitable the stop really was.
The Atlanta show pulled in a gross profit of $357,622 and attracted nearly 16,000 fans.
The show benefitted Live Nation and preceded R. Kelly’s performance, which grossed more than $240,000. Another one of Kelly’s shows had a gross sale that reached up to $809,371.
Peter Conlon, Live Nation Atlanta President told Atlanta Business Chronicle, “It’s [Atlanta] a good mainstream market.”
Atlanta is an integral hub for music that is leading the way for urban music. Some of the biggest names in the industry today hail from ATL, and it’s bringing in a lot of attention.
On top of the large rap influence that the city has, it also has a devoted music scene that caters to different kinds of music lovers. No genre is singled out and musicians of all fame levels perform in this city.
The incredibly profitable show is a reminder that while Atlanta has seen a recent surge of attention when it comes to film and television production, its roots as a hip hop capital and hub for all entertainment still run deep and hold strong.
