Income Source 1: Music concerts and Events sales

Bones earns mainly from ticket sales of events and music concerts. We estimate his earning could be $250,000.

Bones is a prolific artist. 

He was able to release 10 albums between 2015 and 2017. Bones got a chance to perform in KOKO, London on January 19th, 2018. Since then, his music has enabled him to travel to countries like Russia, Germany, Ukraine, and Italy.

Bones has a lot of concerts lined up for 2022 as part of the ScumBag Tour.  According to Bones’ official tour website [2], he has over 20 concerts scheduled between the start of March to the end of April 2022. We estimated his annual income based on this with an assumption of an average audience of 500.

20 concerts * $50 per ticket * 500 audience * 50% share of revenue = $250,000

Tickets prices for the Bones’ teamSesh concerts range from $25 – $50 dollars depending on the location, country, and whether it is exclusive or has other rappers on the lineup. 

According to market observers, there aren’t fixed formulas for splitting profits from a particular concert [3]. On average this is how the profits are split:

  • 10% – booking fees
  • 5% – Tax
  • 1% – royalties

The remaining 84% is then split between the event organizer and the performing artists according to their contract. So, Bones could be getting 40-50% revenue from each concert on average.

The following is a summary of Bones’ previous concerts and events:
