Prince Was To Make $1.5 Million, On Top Of Other Incentives, To Play Pre-Super Bowl Gig

Lots of finger-pointing, still no answers.

Still plenty of unanswered questions surrounding Prince's no-show at the the InterContinental Hotel in Addison on Friday night. But now we have at least one answer: Prince was to be paid $1.5 million on top of other incentives to perform at this event. Or so says the unsigned copy of the contract that WFAA obtained a copy of yesterday, which you can view right here.

As for the other incentives to be sent Prince's way?

  • an additional $100,000 for travel
  • money for one suite and 19 rooms for two nights
  • $15,000 for artist merchandise
  • $55,000 for administration
  • four tickets to the Super Bowl in a private VIP area


And he was only required to perform for 45 minutes. If nothing else, I think we now know why the low-end tickets to the affair cost $1,500.
