Well, Billboard Boxscore made a recent tally of 2010’s top grossing shows thus far, and Jay-Z’s Blueprint 3 tour took eight of the top 35 spots. Of the eight, Jay-Z’s best-selling show closed out at #10 overall after it grossed $1,322,831.
To give some added perspective on how much an artist can make in two weeks of touring, Jay-Z’s tour, which featured Jeezy and Trey Songz, grossed a total of $9,731,218 between March 11-24.
