Beyonce Moves Touring Business To CAA

Published: Thursday 11th Jun 2015 by Sam

Beyonce is all about her business.

Indeed, when not blazing stages, the superstar singer is making waves with pronounced power plays – particularly in the realms of entertainment, fashion, and charity.

Her latest endeavour, though, centers on her touring – something for which she has become renown for over the last decade.

Details below…

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the ‘Drunk In Love’ diva has departed ICM Partners and signed a lucrative new deal with the Creative Arts Agency (CAA) who will now rep her live performance business. [ICM will continue to rep the 33-year-old’s acting endeavours]

The inner-workings of the deal remain under-wraps, although many are wondering aloud if the move is the precursor to an imminent new live run. Also, there’s suggestion the partnership could impact the way the star tours moving forward (namely more stadiums over arenas) – although this has yet to be confirmed.

Bey’s 2014 ‘On the Run’ stadium trek with husband Jay Z grossed more than $100 million in ticket sales over 19 North American stadium dates. Her 2013-14 ‘Mrs Carter World Tour’ generated over $200 million.

    Lol she is not big enough to tour stadiums on her own, i don’t care what she or her fleas think.

    • Mya June 11, 2015

      What? Beyonce sold out 12 shows (a record) at the O2 in London in 2013

      “Phone firm O2, which was behind the pre-sale of the UK shows, said it could have sold out London’s O2 Arena 150 times with the number of website hits with a spokesman noting the “unprecedented level of demand from O2 customers looking to buy tickets”

      She performed for 230k fans in Australia, sold out. She broke the highest attendance in a single show.. twice
      She sold out 4 shows in New ZEALAND in 10 mins
      during the Mrs. Carter Show. She performed multi back back to back and 2 legs in the US & Europe during the Mrs. Carter Show.

      She’s sold out the Tokyo Dome twice

      Beyonce can very well sell-out stadiums like she’s done before and done during On The Rub Tour, if you think it was Jay Z you are sadly mistaken. It was his first $100M grossing tour and Beyonce’s 3rd. Don’t fool yourself.

      • Mya June 11, 2015

        Run*

        During stadiums from a business stand point it not all what it cracked up to be… you put out more money and you take in less money.

      • OMG Logic!!! June 11, 2015

        The O2 seats 20k don’t try to pass it off as a stadium. I don’t care if she “could have” sold it out 150 times. What matters is that she didn’t.

      • gina June 11, 2015

        I said stadiums, not arenas.

      • Mya June 11, 2015

        @OMGLogic

        I see LOGIC has failed you, despite it being ur username lol. Cause LOGIC would tell you if she sold out the O2 12 times with a cap of 20k people that = 240k fans that’s double the amount of seats in a stadium. NOT including the people of that “150 times”.. and she did that without releasing any new music.

        It’s called basic math. Try it.

      • Mya June 11, 2015

        @gina

        And she has performed in stadiums in US, Europe, Asia, South America and sold them out.

    • Yeah I Said It June 11, 2015

      Numbers disagree with you. So you don’t have to care.

  2. Skyfall June 11, 2015

    Maybe ICM wanted to big of a cut of her tour money so she cut their ass off completely.

  3. meiammarie June 11, 2015

    f*** she wanna perform in stadiums for b**** u not michael jackson such a selfish money hungry w**** she charges $1095/$995 for VIP that includes no meets and greets thats y her tours gross so much selfish witch u dont give a f*** bout ur fans

    • Ms Beykim wants Bieber,One Direction,Miley Cyrus,Gaga and Beyonce (I wanna marry Bieber) June 11, 2015

      Do you even know how much I paid for an Ariana meet and greet? Stfu there are artists charging an arm and a leg with a kidney on top for just a meet and greet. A lot if my faces charge a lot so stfu

    • Krista June 11, 2015

      You seem mad lol. No ones forcing you to pay for anything.

    • OMG Logic!!! June 11, 2015

      No wonder her tour revenue is so grossly inflated. People aren’t actually attending her shows, but the ones who do show up pay outrageous amounts to do so.

      • Naomi June 11, 2015

        Her shows are sold out dumbass.

  4. Rihanna Lately June 11, 2015

    She’s a very smart Business Woman, thanks to Jay Z.

    • OMG Logic!!! June 11, 2015

      Nah she’s a greedy pig like her husband. If she gave a damn about her fans she wouldn’t charge such stupidly high prices for such a mediocre show. Madonna charges outrageous prices, but with her you know you’re getting a 5 star theatrical experience.

      • trellbeylike June 11, 2015

        Beyoncé doesnt need theatrics to entertain the world. She’s been doing it with her mic and a light. That’s why she’s so respected on stage. She is the show. Her shows sells out in minutes…carry on

  5. Slay_Hive June 11, 2015

    OMG I hope this is a hint of a new tour and music coming!!????????????☕

  6. Suicide Blonde June 11, 2015

    I believe she can play stadiums but i don’t think her tours can gross 200+ million with 75-85 dates like Madonna’s tours does, in order to gross 200+ million she has to add the triple of dates like Gaga did with her first and second tour.

    • Kingbeybitch June 11, 2015

      Do you realize you’re the only on who cares about Madonna ?

      • Suicide Blonde June 11, 2015

        I do not care for her or any other artist, i like her artistry but it all ends there, i don’t worship other human beings except for myself. Btw, Madonna’s tour proves how much people actually care for her, let’s not be silly.

    • Krista June 11, 2015

      Beyonce is 33 years old. Why are you comparing her to Madonasaurs triple long career.

      • Suicide Blonde June 11, 2015

        But isn’t Beyoncé a legend?, the greatest thing on earth, according to her fanbase, if so, then i have to compare her to the greats, why you butthurt?, it is because these comparisons prove how below them she is.

      • Krista June 11, 2015

        Where did I or any of her fans say that? Please provide receipts. That being said, she is a legend in the making, which even you have admitted so I don’t see the issue. But logic tells you why Madonna can gross that much when her fans go back decades(s). Beyonce is grossing over 200 mill and shes not even 40. Please have some logic. You’re old enough to stan for Madonna, so Im sure maturity and logic is there somewhere.

      • SURPRISE…….(DEC.13) June 11, 2015

        @Krista why are you paying SUICIDE RACIST any attention. It only cares for white artist and hates on every black artist..LOL. What a pathetic loser it is tho!!!!!!!!!!!LOL

      • danyboo June 11, 2015

        Its all economics boo most of Beyonce fans who have grown with her are in there mid 30s late to early 20s so Beyonce fan base are still working class citizens still raising kids and teenagers compared to acts like Madonna The Rolling Stones U2 etc who fans are mostly retired and have disposable income because of retirement plans and more money to spend on themselves because they’re kids are all adults now do you see the logic @suicide_blonde… Madonnas been in the game a very long time so she deserves to sell out shows like she does no shade no tea… But trust and believe in 10 more years Beyonces force will be unparallel to any touring acts believe that.

    • OMG Logic!!! June 11, 2015

      Thighyonce probably can gross 200+ million. Have you seen how much she charges her zombie fans? She and Apple were literally made for each other.

      • Krista June 11, 2015

        You obviously don’t go to many concerts. Because all those artists charge around the same as Beyonce for general tickets. Madonna charges triple that. You get what you give. Stop exposing yourself as an anti social troll who speaks out if their a***.

    • trellbeylike June 11, 2015

      Lol if the On The Run Tour can gross 100 million with 19 dates what makes u think she cant do 200 million with 75 dates…lol come on son…

  7. I Am…For Beyonce June 11, 2015

    Hey Mrs. carter. Lol haters seething in 1 2 3

  8. TheElusiveLamb June 11, 2015

    I’m happy for her. She works so hard and is extremely diligent when it comes to her live performances/tours. The Mrs. Carter World Tour was phenomenal. Hair, vocals, body, mind, visuals, and more. She deserves to benefit from the hard work.

    • OMG Logic!!! June 11, 2015

      Other artists put on a show 20x better than hers (with stage shows that cost many times what her show costs to put on) and charge a fraction of what she does.

      • TheElusiveLamb June 11, 2015

        Please don’t try it this morning. The only great performers that up to par with Beyoncè, is Gaga, P!nk, Tina, MJ, Janet, Madonna, and a handful of others. All of those artists charge hundreds of dollars as well… I should know bc I have seen all of them live.

    • coolness June 11, 2015

      I agree. Bey works her a** off to be a respected performer! You say you’ve seen a handful of great performers live. I recall you saying you were going to see Usher last year. What was he like in concert?

      • TheElusiveLamb June 11, 2015

        Yes I saw him on my birthday [12|4]! He was great vocally, but I could tell he was limited on the budget as far as visuals. The OMG Tour was better, but again, he sounded amazing.

  9. Ms Beykim wants Bieber,One Direction,Miley Cyrus,Gaga and Beyonce (I wanna marry Bieber) June 11, 2015

    Last time I saw bet on stage was 2008. In my living faves I’m yet to see Iggy and kesha on stage. But seriously,if someone got me tickets for beys next tour I’d give em anything

  10. Krista June 11, 2015

    Of course Beyonce can play stadiums shes a massivly hyped performer and tickets sell out in seconds. If Rihanna can Beyonce can for CERTAIN.

  11. Yeah I Said It June 11, 2015

    Omg this means she’ll be Touring again! I don’t know why she didn’t with her last Tour tbh. Must’ve been the financial deal or something.

  12. Kingbeybitch June 11, 2015

    Before the navy come in here saying Beyoncé can’t sell out stadiums on here own let me just remind yall that Beyoncé sold way more tickets than the “stadium status b****”.. Yall really think she can’t sell out stadiums lool

    • Mark111 June 11, 2015

      No one brought up Rihanna before your comment. Scared much?

      • Tyler Makivelli June 11, 2015

        Rihanna and touring are oxymorons…so what exactly is there to be afraid of?

      • Mark111 June 11, 2015

        Clearly the pest are, the reason they bring up her name. Aren’t y’all tired after hating her 10 years and no wins at it? lol

  13. Cake like Lady GaGa June 11, 2015

    But that still won’t help self-titled, which is still stalled at 3.8m WW.

    • Yeah I Said It June 11, 2015

      You stan for Gaga stop dragging your own fave please! Self titled is 2x plat while Artpoop has barely scraped Gold. Sit down and stop trolling.

      • Weezy Tha G.O.A.T June 11, 2015

        Say what u want but Gaga has a throat on her.

    • Mya June 11, 2015

      Over 4.2 million, 300k+ sold from the platinum edition.

      Speaking of platinum did ArtFLOP FINALLY cross that mark? Nope. lmao!

      • SURPRISE…….(DEC.13) June 11, 2015

        Why is a MANLY FLOPGA stan commenting??? Didn’t its fave have to suck on old saggy testicles to have some form of relevancy in 2014…LOL

  14. Barb B**** June 11, 2015

    My coins are ready for Queen Carter.

  15. Rihanna Lately June 11, 2015

    Let’s be real tho, trolling aside, Beyoncé is a phenomenal performer.

    • SURPRISE…….(DEC.13) June 11, 2015

      I appreciate the fact, that as much as you hate Beyonce, u still give credit where it is due…Unlike that troll SUICIDE-CUNTT

  16. Weezy Tha G.O.A.T June 11, 2015

    B****** is seething las usual. Beyonce can defiantly sell out stadiums, I mean did u idiots actually think those people paid to see Jay Z old ass on their joint tour?? ???????? instead of hating on Motha Bey maybe y’all should just worry about your own favs considering the fact that Beyonce is most likely their superior.

    • SURPRISE…….(DEC.13) June 11, 2015

      Exactly my point!!!!!!!

  17. Arianator Barb June 11, 2015

    How is Beyonce not gonna sell out stadiums??? If there’s any current artist who hasn’t done it yet that can, it’s Beyonce.

    • Rihanna Lately June 11, 2015

      Ariana Grande hasn’t sold out stadiums.

      • Arianator Barb June 11, 2015

        B**** did I bring her up?? Fall the f*** back and pray for R8 you dry pu$$y thotler

  18. LoveBey June 11, 2015

    Hopefully this means a new tour soon so I’m excited! I would love to see some of self-titled live as well as new music. The U.S. Hive missed out on seeing this songs performed during the MCWT so it would be great to!

  19. RihNavy June 11, 2015

    You know, it’s sad how the same trolls with the same avi’s, or lack thereof…that DON’T like Beyoncé come running into a Beyoncé post at the crack of the morning. #iKnowYouCare!

    What’s even more ridiculous is, Sam, David & Rashad could put out a dry ass post about Beyoncé as bait for clicks so they can get paid and y’all idiots would still comment and give them exactly what they want. That’s EXACTLY why I don’t comment on here that much.

  20. diabetes June 11, 2015

    I just hope she puts her previous discography to rest and only perform. Music from her 30s. Im sick of her performing irreplacable and cil. Wouldnt mind her bringing back some of the old setlist tho like dil and listen.

  21. Molly June 11, 2015

    I would go especially with a new album to go with it. #SlayUsQueen

    • Stephy. June 11, 2015

      Hey Sis! Love you.

  22. diabetes June 11, 2015

    Dont forget the mscwt was and still is the highest grossing tour by a black artist. 3rd highest female(behind only fadga and dinasour-mandonna i think) and top 20 highest of all time. Bey only 34 and already beating legends in grammys and tour gross. And also beys attendance is increasing iamsf tour had 1 mill attendance and mscarter doubled that.

  23. ratedxxx June 11, 2015

    I dont believe that @suicide blonde is racist…

    People loves to throw the word racism around when it comes to the Carters

    Whats ironic though..beyondfake wanting to be a white woman so bad

  24. ratedxxx June 11, 2015

    So let me get this straight beyondfake has never sold out a stadium?

    But but but isn’t she supposed to be on Michael Jackson’s level…..

    Over 20 years in the game, no stadium status, no diamond status..ahahahah

    • SURPRISE…….(DEC.13) June 11, 2015

      U FOOL..GO LOOK AT THE ON THE RUN TOUR BOXSCORE!!!

    • Naomi June 11, 2015

      Yes she has. You are dismissed.

  25. ratedxxx June 11, 2015

    Umm I would not use the I am..the biggest fraud in the music world tour
    as an example. .when britney non singing dancing killed her

    • SURPRISE…….(DEC.13) June 11, 2015

      On the i am..tour she sould out stadiums in Brazil..Do ur research u fuckking troll and worry about RIHJECTION album being released in NEVERUARY!!!!!

  26. trellbeylike June 11, 2015

    Beyoncé has sold out stadiums in brazil tokyo europe and the united states by herself b4 the OTR tour so her selling out stadiums is nothing new. Im actually here for doing a complete solo stadium tour next year with this new deal tho!

  27. fatusankoh June 11, 2015

    You go queen bey good luck and more success in all you do thanks Sam for posting

  28. Mark111 June 11, 2015

    Beyonce is a touring beast. Hands down the greatest of our gen. I will give her the credit she deserve, great singer, powerful performer, all around entertainer (sing, act, dance). But I will never be one of her delusional stans that thinks she’s a writer, god, or musician. I feel that her songs are more anthems VS a peak into the person thoughts or with a message. Maybe she’ll get here, but artist like Janet could give you all of that, so can A Keys. She tries, but it’s always a miss (Pretty Hurts, I Was Here).

    • Stephy. June 11, 2015

      Janet would’ve been perfect if she served the VOCALs imo. She did everything else BETTER than Bey. But, the vocals is what gets her slept on by the new generation.

      • Mark111 June 11, 2015

        But singing isn’t the only rule to be an entertainer. Dancing is just as much as a talent if not MORE than singing. Both should be respected.

      • Stephy. June 11, 2015

        But the thing is… Beyonce can do BOTH. Also, the general public respect vocalist a lot more than dancers. People always bashed Madonna, MJ, Janet etc… for Lipsyncing. But, people don’t realise you can’t really sing while dancing hard. But, they still don’t care.

      • Stephy. June 11, 2015

        And, I think vocalizing is harder than dancing.

      • Mark111 June 11, 2015

        I don’t. Any singer with any range of vocals can pick a lane or range to sing it and sound good. And you just named 3 of the biggest pop stars of all time, clearly no one cared that they lipped as long as they were giving a great show (minus Madonna). All Chris Brown does is dance, he can’t sing for crap LIVE (rather he’s dancing or not), and he’s bigger than his singing peers. With singing, there’s studio magic (as we seen with Mariah), but you’re ether a dancer or not. There’s no way to trick it (as we seen with Mariah).
        .
        90% of Bey’s dancing is @ss shaking, that’s not hating, it’s the truth. Beyonce is not even on a Ciara, Mya, old Britney or Aaliyah level of dancing, so what makes you think she’s anywhere near Ms. Janet?

      • Stephy. June 11, 2015

        90% of artist are studio magic. Mariah Carey ONLY became a studio singer AFTER her voice became damaged. How can you be a studio singer… When you’ve shown a 5 octave range on a LIVE basis (some even acapella) multiple times. And, there is nothing wrong with being a studio singer. You make it sound like its a bad thing. But, Mariah before the damage was NOT a studio vocalist only. She could really sing live & on the spot. And, Beyonce can do BOTH. She’s a vocalist & dancer. Booty shaking is a form of DANCING, period. And, she’s proven that she could dance like Janet. If she really wanted too. Madonna puts on great shows (visually). But, she can’t sing nor dance (imo).

      • Stephy. June 11, 2015

        She’s above Miss Jackson cause she does BOTH. A vocalist & powerhouse performer.

      • Mark111 June 11, 2015

        I was talking about dancing. Beyonce is slightly above average dancer (the reason any gay boy can do her dances) and Janet is an ok singer. Janet can sing LIVE, it’s not strong, but she sounds like her records. So entertainer, yes, Bey has the upper hand. But dancing? Bey isn’t even in the top 5.

      • Stephy. June 11, 2015

        I’m a gay boy & I know Miss Jackson’s dance moves down to a T! I’m a huge Janet stan! So, stop generalizing us as only booty shaking queens. Gay guys do multiple type of dancing. Also, Beyonce is OVERALL (visuals, VOCALS, Dancing, hit songs, intensity, stage presence etc..) better than Janet imo. And, I like Janet’s music way more tho.

      • Naomi June 11, 2015

        Beyonce does more than booty shake mark shut up.

  33. Centurion June 11, 2015

    Yeah okay. She changed talent agency. Big phucking deal. And as for “signed a lucrative new deal,” that’s just Sam gassing up this beysic flop beyatch.

  34. @JanetCIARA_ June 11, 2015

    Slay Bey!

  35. louise_1 June 11, 2015

    Beyonce is past her prime and is too dumb to see it. She’s going to be on a walker still trying to be revelant. Acting is a zero as she can’t even speak clearly. She’s done.

    • Naomi June 11, 2015

      You’re stupid. Madonna is past her prime and has had her biggest Tour to date. Explain?

      • louise_1 June 11, 2015

        Okay ms. Stupid. What do you know. You must be on Beybo payroll.

      • Naomi June 12, 2015

        So you can’t explain it then.

  36. Royalkev June 11, 2015

    I love this woman! She’s just A M A Z I N G live and I know anything she has coming up will be worth the wait!

    Bey and these power moves >>>>
