What Does it Actually Cost to Book Elton John?




CelebrityTalent.net is a site that is able to reach out to managers of the famous to find current booking fees, and which claims to update its list daily, to find a comprehensive and current list of rates.


The biggest names in music, like Sting, Rihanna, Elton John, Paul McCartney, Taylor Swift and Justin Timberlake, will always ask for over $US750,000+ for a US event and even more for an international event. These acts very often turn down offers from buyers they do not know, but CTI as an experienced major name talent buyer, can help you get a name confirmed if a buyer has the budget to confirm the act.

Speakers like Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bill Clinton, Tony Blair and Richard Branson, have a speaking fee of over $US200,000 and also a private jet needs to be provided or paid for by the client.

On the music side, many of the most important artists of all time, like Bob Dylan (min. $US250,000) and Patti Smith (min. $US250,000), can be had for an arguably shameful bargain. It also appears possible to order specific band members individually, and it’s interesting to see who costs more: Don Henley (min. $US250,000) is the most expensive Eagle, followed by Glenn Frey (min. $US150,000) and Joe Walsh (also min. $US150,000). The band itself costs at least $US750,000.

Actors are cheaper than bands, and start coming in at $US250,000, which will net you people like Ben Stiller, Harrison Ford, and Helen Mirren.
