See What Phillip Phillips, Carrie Underwood Earned from NYS Fair Gigs!

The folks at Syracuse.com posted Box Office for the acts that played the New York State Fair this year. Carrie Underwood, Phillip Phillips and Kellie Pickler were all booked for the event, and we’ve got the fees they charged and in the case of Carrie, her ticket sales!

Interesting details:

  • Jason Aldean the only artist to sell out the Grandstand, and he was the most expensive performer.
  • Carrie Underwood was the 2nd most expensive performer (and had no opening act), behind Aldean who outpaced her pretty solidly in ticket sales with the help of his opening acts Florida Georgia Line and Tyler Farr.  She earned a smidge more than her buddy, Brad Paisley, who had opening acts Randy Houser, Charlie Worsham, and Leah Turner, but sold a lot more tickets than he did.
  • Phillip Phillips was the most expensive performer at Chevy Court, with a price tag, ahead of Jordin Sparks’ ex-boyfriend, Jason Derulo.
  • Wow. Peter Noone from Herman Hermits only earned 15K less than Kellie Pickler! She also earned more than the Bacon Brothers
