The party of the first part vs. the part of the second part is well-known for its extensive collection of performers' contracts. The Los Angeles Times recently printed details of not only some of the Orange County Fair's performers' backstage requests, but also their performance fees.

For example, Paul Simon is getting $325k plus 85% of gross box office revenue. Michael Bolton: $85k plus a $10k bonus for a sold out show.
