This was reported by the newspaper "Komsomolskaya Pravda".
According to promoter Sergei Lavrov, the demand for "inexpensive artists" such as Shura or Alexander Marshal has increased. “And they also want to see artists who sing patriotic songs: [Oleg] Gazmanov, Valeria,” he explained.
The organizer of the concerts said that the musicians' fees fell amid the pandemic. If we talk about corporate speeches, then prices have dropped by 30-40 percent. At the same time, Lavrov added that it is too early to draw conclusions about a decrease in earnings from concerts. He said that the organizers of major events have agreed that now they will work with the artists "at the box office."
“Like, how many tickets have been sold, the artist's fee will be calculated from this amount. For example, I earned a million from ticket sales, so count it: 200 thousand went to rent a hall, plus expenses for advertising, a hotel and food for the team. And the tour organizer usually gets ten percent of the profits. And the rest is given to the singer ",
- explained Lavrov.
In April, concert organizer Igor Kovalev said that the music industry in Russia is suffering huge losses due to the coronavirus pandemic. He said that Philip Kirkorov canceled a tour of the Baltic states, which is why he lost 50 million rubles.
