Adam Lambert may not have won American Idol during his time, but he definitely won the hearts of people around the world. That is why, ironically, he is considered by many as the most successful contestant not just of his season, but of the entire show.
With millions of albums sold, chart-topping hits, and sold-out world tours under his belt, many have been curious as to how much Adam has made over the course of his career. Hint: he’s already got millions of dollars.
How Much Money Does Adam Lambert Make From Singing?
Despite finishing the American Idol competition in 8th place, Adam still managed to see commercial success. In fact, he was named by Forbes as the highest-earning American Idol in 2015.
He sold over 3 million albums and 5 million singles around the world. But as we all know, artists make most of their fortune from live performances and tours.
So far, Adam has gone on three music tours as a solo artist:
- American Idols Live! Tour (2009)
- Glam Nation Tour (2010)
- The Original High Tour (2015)
For his first-ever worldwide tour, Adam made a whopping $2.8million gross revenue – something that even experienced musicians struggle to achieve. His American Idols Live! Tour made an even bigger figure: roughly $30million.
It is unknown how much Adam took home from that amount, but we’re guessing he must have had a big payday. Finally, The Original High Tour made around $1.4million after 57 shows.
It is also speculated that Adam Lambert made around $10million from his collaboration with the legendary rock band Queen – yes, that band with Freddie Mercury. Adam filled the role of the band’s frontman for a couple of shows and tours:
