Have you ever wondered how much it would cost to bring in your favorite artist to do a private show? Surely you would expect to pay a pretty penny for some big name acts, but I'm going to crush your dreams altogether when I show you the bottom dollar.

Here's how much some well-known musicians born right here in Louisiana charge for concerts. Who knows, maybe you could get the home-state discount?


Britney Spears (she was born in Mississippi, but raised in Louisiana, so we're counting her!) charges a small fee of just $500,000. Yikes. That price is Toxic.

Torrence Hatch (aka Lil Boosie) is a free man, and he can be yours for just $50,000. For 50K, the Baton Rouge-based rapper better Wipe ME Down.

Bossier City's Jared Leto is an Oscar Award winner, but he also has a band. 30 Seconds to Mars will come play for you for a measly $50,000. He better bring the damn Oscar with him for that price!

The multi-talented Hunter Hayes from Breaux Bridge, Louisiana doesn't charge much for a show. Of course, I'm kidding: he charges $150,000 - $200,000! I guess he really is Wanted.

Kenny Wayne Shepherd is in town this Friday at Margaritaville in Bossier City. But if you want to see the Shreveport native at your own private show because you simply Can't Get Enough of him, it's gonna cost you $35,000.

Country star Tim McGraw of Delhi, Louisiana will bring his cowboy hat to you for $500,000. For half a million, Faith Hill better be with him!

And here's a few more prices to book some of the artists you hear regularly on K945 :

Black Eyed Peas: $400,000 - $500,000

Calvin Harris: $150,000

Florida Georgia Line: $250,000 - $500,000
