Which of the performers charge the most to appear on stage?
This question was answered last New Year’s Eve, when all three Lebanese divas put on concerts.
It was reported that Elissa earned $130,000 for her performance, while Wehbe received $80,000 and Nancy got $70,000. Fans paid between $250 and $1,000 for a ticket to attend Nancy’s event, while Haifa’s fans paid $350 and $700 for a ticket.
