According to The Mirror, boy band JLS will only get £100 each at some gigs. Meanwhile, acts such as Daniel Evans, Eoghan Quigg and Laura White will apparently receive £250 per show.

The report alleges that all their wages will be taxed, while they must also give 20% commission to their agents and even have to pay their own expenses. “The acts are worth much more, especially when you think how much money the tour generates,” said a source.

“A show at London’s 20,000-capacity O2 arena will make as much as £600,000 in tickets alone, and more when lucrative merchandise sales are added on.”

The insider added: “The acts even have to fork out for their own breakfast if it’s not included in the price of the room. They can’t claim back any drinks or their telephone bills if they want to stay in touch with their family.” The fees reportedly increase to £200 for JLS members and £500 for solo acts at weekday shows.
