Got a big, important event coming up? Feel like a casual live performance by Adele would just “totally” make your Diva-themed birthday the best night, ever? Then pay attention, because we know what it’ll set you back to hire out some of the biggest names in the music biz. 

According to Priceonomics, who shared a list of costs from Degy Entertainment, the alleged price tags that go along with a performance from music’s finest run as high as $1,320,000 (and these costs are dated back from 2014, so we imagine they’ve increased considerably).

Here are a few of our favourites (converted into Aussie dollars, of course!): 

Drake

Estimated at approximately $340,000 - $660,000.

(Man's gotta pay for his dates with Rihanna somehow...)

Powerball

Kanye West

Estimated at approximately $530,000 - $790,000.

(We find it hard to believe that Kanye is at the low end of this list, just quietly.)

Powerball

Rihanna

Estimated at approximately $660,000 - $990,000.

Coldplay
