An artist making money in the studio is one thing, but the real bread and butter comes on the road where Drake has made a pretty penny as well. According to The Smoking Gun, the Canadian performer earned $155,000 per show in 2010. That’s a strong number considering the amount of cities he hit last year. After participating in the "Young Money Presents: America's Most Wanted Music Festival" in 2009, 2010 saw Drake hit 25 domestic destinations for the “The Away From Home Tour” in April and May and then hit the road again for the “Light Dreams & Nightmares” that swept through 24 cities from August to November. His performance at Radio City Music Hall in 2010 alone raked in $761,113.
