Is there anyone here who has legit experience/schooling in the music industry? For some reason, I am interested in learning about music contracts, international and domestic touring logistics, percentages, producer credits/fees, contract stipulations etc. I'm not a huge fan of him but I saw this on TMZ and got curious. http://www.tmz.com/2013/01/18/ti-75-million-dollar-record-label-contract/ Sources close to T.I. tell TMZ ... T.I.'s 10-year contract with Atlantic ran up only a month ago ... but he's already put together his own idea of a $75 million deal: - 3 albums - 10-20 percent of publishing, touring, merchandise, film and TV rights - Corporate endorsement deals - Exclusive signing of all Grand Hustle artists Is 10-20% a good cut for those rights? What about in the 1980's and 90's? If a rock band sells 10,000 seats for 50 bucks a tickets, how will that half a million be split among: 5 band members, 3 touring members, guitar tech(s) and audio engineers, tour manager and staff, roadies, record company? What about for a 2,000 seater gig? The difference between today and the 1980's and 90's?
