Eman & Lady Gaga Afterparty Green Gig?
Lady Gaga & Eman
The Washington, D.C. rumor mill is running wild with reports that Lady Gaga will back Eman for his 3-song set at a gig after her Monster Ball Tour concert and fundraiser for Senator Frank R. Lautenberg (D-NJ) on Tuesday, Sept. 7, at 8 p.m. at Verizon Center. Lautenberg has a private suite with patrons contributing $2,500 a person for PACs and $2,400 for individuals.
The rumored gig with Eman and Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta (Lady Gaga) would feature Eman's repetoire of "Susie Sensitive," "You Were Always On My Mind (Mother Nature)," and "Global Warming/Climate Change." Will the venue be in a private suite, or will it be at an as yet undisclosed location? Only the rumor mill knows for sure. But the rumor mill speculates that it could be announced at the Lautenberg fundraiser.
Generally, if a luxury suite is available, it can be rented for somewhere between $4,000 and $8,000. There are a range of seats available in each suite, but if the suite has 20 seats, plus two for the candidate and spouse. The suite lessor pays for the food and booze. So figure $100 per for that. Brings you to around $10,000 or so. You charge $2,500 a head for a high rollers. So that's $50,000. The suite lessor nets $40,000, minus some expenses. Hmmmm. And deduct $5,000 more for Eman's fee.
