Calvin Harris has reigned as the highest paid DJ year after year, and yet, he hasn’t done a proper tour since 2013 with Tiësto. In the meantime, he’s released two albums and four non-album singles, all of which could have netted him a country-wide tour. So how is he still getting paid so much, despite never hitting the road?
Well, it has a lot to do with Las Vegas and his residency with Hakkasan Group. He’s just renewed his residency for Omnia Nightclub in Las Vegas for a not-so-small sum of £200 million (that’s around $280 million USD by today’s conversion rate) through 2020. He’ll be performing every Friday.
Breaking down the numbers, that’s more than £1 million for each, for around 2 hours a night.
Nick McCabe, of the Hakkasan Group, who own the Omnia club in Caesar’s Palace, described Harris’s performances there over the last five years as “electrifying.”
