Following a recent (and questionable) list of Priceonomics' Zachary Crockett on how much it really costs to book bands, singers, and artists for a concert or events, Business Insider linked with -- a site that is able to reach out to managers of the famous to find current booking fees -- to give a more accurate overview on current booking fees. Here's how Celebrity Talent International introduces the booking process:

The biggest names in music, like Sting, Rihanna, Elton John, Paul McCartney, Taylor Swift and Justin Timberlake, will always ask for over $750,000+ for a US event and even more for an international event. These acts very often turn down offers from buyers they do not know, but CTI as an experienced major name talent buyer, can help you get a name confirmed if a buyer has the budget to confirm the act.

Speakers like Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bill Clinton, Tony Blair and Richard Branson, have a speaking fee of over $200,000 and also a private jet needs to be provided or paid for by the client.

There are 14 brackets in total -- ranging from $1,500,00-$2,000,000 to $250,000-$349,999. Check out a few of the brackets below, and then head here for all 14 brackets.
