Formation World Tour in Trouble?


Earlier this week Live Nation announced they were adding seven new shows to Beyonce's Formation World Tour schedule due to popular demand [click here if you missed that].

Meanwhile industry insiders are whispering about the surprising number of tickets that have gone unsold....


From The Sydney Morning Herald
She's the undisputed queen of pop with her album Lemonade at number one on the Billboard 200, but Beyonce's latest string of concerts are far from selling out.
Entire stadium sections on the Grammy winner's Formation World Tour have gone unsold, including at several shows in the coming fortnight.
In Seattle and Minneapolis, the stadium's back tier sections remain largely empty, while in San Francisco, entire rows of floor seats are unsold. It's a similar story in Pittsburgh where some rear stalls are less than 50 per cent full.
That said, "Queen B" still sells. The Formation World Tour made $US100 million ($134 million) in its first week of sales, according to Billboard, with shows in New York and Los Angeles selling out in minutes.

How is she the "undisputed" queen of pop if other girls in pop (Taylor, Adele) outsold her? Or is this another fake story.......

Maybe people are tired of being made the fool. Gimmicks can get pretty old and makes the artist look desperate, especially when you began to rely on them and so-called hold the title as the "Flawless, Fierce, Queen".

Meanwhile, I'm going in LA best weekend and they emailed me a week ago saying it's soldoutbajs they recommend attendees arrive by 3:30pm. Bey and the tour will be just fine.

No one in HISTORY has sold 100 million of ANYTHING in one week.

I mean, aint she tired of hyping up bulls***?! Ain't she? Even Rihanna ain't this bad.
Why doesn't she hype up a 5 year hiatus, how about that?

Adele's concert @ Radio City Hall New York was a definite sell out last nite. She sang the 90 minutes and never had a dress change - all vocals, no hype, no rude gestures, no jumping around, etc.. Just pure music and out of this world!

12:55pm Because she's not the queen of pop. She the queen of hype.

This man reading a book at the Raleigh concert sums up the feelings of the general public:

Once again, that yodeling and twerking in a body suit with the same big hair, year after year, is tired. She needs a new look. Some new steps. It's time for a change, Beyaaaaaaaaaaawnsy. 💃💅💋✌🐝🔫

Oh damn gimme a break...she wasn't selling out basketball arenas a couple of years ago, and now her minions expect us to believe she's packing in stadiums when she's older, even LESS popular and has barely any new material? Riiight. And P.S. I want someone to find and post the picture of Janet with an orchid on her face from years ago, that this ho has totally jacked for her thieving azz Formation publicity.

@5:27- Surely you jest. You are comparing Adele performing to a capacity of 6,015 people tops in NY vs Beyonce performing at the Met Life Stadium in NY at a capacity of 82,000 people tops? Bawaaaaaa

Perhaps she shoulda stuck with the MO of Adele, Katy, Taylor, Rihanna, Janet etc.... and played at arenas instead of stadiums. Then again I call BS on this article.

@9:55 Adele is playing to arenas like MSG and TD Garden (18K capacity)....anywhoo Beyduncé played to same venues a few years ago and did NOT fill all those seats, so how she gonna fill football stadiums?

Concerts sell out these day not because of fans purchasing tickets but because of re-seller purchasing large quantities of tickets hoping to gouge those who want to go to the concerts. ANd being that her ticket are already expensive from the start, I can definitely see and believe her concerts may not be official sold out.

You can't do a stadium tour every damn year. Too much money. She needs to take a couple years of the hardcore touring.

@9:34...I'll call myself a Queen too if I can be rude with the thievery she does and get away with it. I've read on Huffington post she was giving her tickets away to people who donate to charity and it's still not selling. Think she better hang it up or make up new thievery lies that people follow.

Adele has NO privileges that Beyonce doesn't have. Beyonce is the most famous singer period yet she doesn't sell like the other girls and thats because her music is very "niche" and public interest has waned due to her aging.

wow the PR is strong with the bullshit on this one
how is her album number one??? it aint

@9:13 pm, wow that's crazy. I bet she and her thieving crew hate folks with good memories like you. Lol

Yes she needs a new tour person. Get rid of the all girl band and all girl dancers. It's beyond stale. People miss seeing her in pretty dresses singing real songs. And just because she is doing old songs doesn't mean she has to do old choreography. Madonna reinvention tour 10 years ago was amazing. She did all the old songs to new costumes, new dancers, new set design, new hair, and remixed a bunch of the songs. This obviously required work that Miss Beyonce thinks she is above.

Bawaaaaa @10:41 keep singing Kumbya and telling yourself that. I personally think that Adele has the better voice but reality is that they don't have the same advantages!

Another black person with an inferiority complex towards white people. Like Beyonce hasn't traveled to all corners of the world, saw many people places and things, had numerous endorsements, products, brands, etc.

Beyonce has worn me out as well but as an overall entertainer she is by miles better than Adele. Funny things is I bet Adele isn't tripping over the threat of her mythical "white privelege" or that some Black singers are more successful than her.

@7:35- Bawaaa okay if you think that's how it really is sweetie. I didn't say she wasn't accomplished or couldn't achieve things I said one is more privileged than the other and skin color has something (not EVERYTHING) to do with it. l stand by my opinion!!

Lmao why would Adele feel threatened by Beyonce and she has more advantages for solely being white and talented? You've misconstrued what I said. Success doesn't automatically equate privilege, two different things.

Beyonce and team please listen up. Stop these stupid stunts or you're done. Sasha Fierce, Beysus, Yonce all gone.

Whatever! Beyonce is spectacular. She runs the world of music! She is the hardest working woman in show business. I love Rihanna too. But when you see Riri's concert after Bey's...well Rihanna is damn lazy��! Bey is THAT Bitch and is finally owning her slayage! Bey Bey will be just fine on the concert stage selling out stadiums across the world. Her fame will dwindle one day like every performer! But today is not that day! Mrs Carter still got years to slay us with her talent! She is selling us lemonade and we bought the whole damn thing and went back for seconds!

^^^ Beyonce is a spectacular singer and dancer doing subpar work. No one doubts she's a hard worker. Stop with these calculated stunts and create music that stirs the soul. In the meantime the countdown begins to lemonade stand closure. AND WHO DID HER MAKE UP AT THE MET GALA??? TRAGIC!!
