How much money does Helene Fischer have?
Born on August 5, 1984 in Krasnoyarsk, Helene Fischer is not only one of the most successful pop singers in Germany. At the same time, she is one of the most successful German stars in the music industry. Helene Fischer ‘s estimated fortune is 35 million euros . She has already sold more than 4 million concert tickets and over 15 million records to her fans. On August 6, 2021, the new joint single with Luis Fonsi “Vamos A Marte (Let’s fly to Mars)” will be released, with which the international breakthrough should also succeed. At Christmas 2021 she had her first child with her fiancé Thomas Seitel.
If that surprises you, you have to keep in mind that folk music and hits work differently than pop and rock. While albums from the latter genres are often downloaded illegally from the Internet, fans of pop and folk music tend to buy a physical CD in the traditional way. As a result, pop stars sometimes earn more than pop stars, even with slightly fewer sound carriers sold. Pop Titan Dieter Bohlen also used this for himself. He has the other two big names Andrea Berg and Beatrice Egli under contract. If you want to book Helene Fischer for a concert, you have to put at least 250,000 euros on the table.
earnings per concert
In October 2018, the New York Times published a list with the event platform Pollstar, which lists the top concert artists based on their ticket sales. Here Helene Fischer reached 7th place with an average gross income of 3.2 million euros per concert and an average ticket price of 71.5 euros. Mind you, worldwide! So booking the “Queen of Schlager” will probably be more than worthwhile for every organizer. The singer herself only gets a small part of it. However, the list shows that the singer can outperform pop greats like Justin Timberlake or Shakira when it comes to live performances. Of course, first and second place in the concert revenue goes to Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran.
The career of Helene Fischer
Today Helene Fischer is not only a very successful singer. However, she owns the ” Helene Fischer Show‘ her own television show on Second German Television (ZDF). The fact that this steep career came about at all, which has made great progress especially in the last ten years, is not entirely due to Helene herself, but to her mother.
