NeNe Leakes Forced to Cancel a String of Shows


Over the weekend former reality star NeNe Leakes went ballistic on an audience member on the DC stop of the 'So Nasty So Rude' tour [click here if you missed that].

One would think NeNe would be nicer to her paying fans since there obviously aren't that many of them...

Last week NeNe quietly canceled three shows without notice, a sure sign of low ticket sales.

Bwaaaahaha I've seen this happen so many times. Why artists and managers don't check their booking agents more often is beyond me. The thirsty and out of touch will say yes to any routing spreadsheet that had the numbers looking good. But the fault tests squarely on the preformers shoulders when nobody is buying tickets. You can't expect more than 30% more to show up at the door after presales in many cases. So you can pretty much tell if the buyers are going to be pissed at you before you ever get there. It's smart to cancel because there's still a staff and operations house nut if they have to open the doors for her. But surely money has already been spent or lost on advertising, possdibly a deposit, travel, and not booking someone else on a lucrative night of the week. So she's looking egg on her face dumb af. I doubt there will be second chances for her at those canceled shows. Problem is, in many cities 1 or 2 buyers have shows like that on lock at all the venues, so moves like that can fuck you up in an entire city for a long time.

Booking agents will book the biggest room with the highest guarentee every damn time. It's a commission based business, duh. It's in the agents best interest to do that, not the artist. Im sure nene is a difficult bitch that thinks her reality stardom translates into ticket sales, so there's a big chance she wouldn't go for this BUT she should have done a hosting tour with an optional set for her in select cities at established black comedy nights. She needed to ease herself into the tour circut by canibolizing other established followings that are similar to hers. I highly doubt she'd except the severe drop off in pay but that is kinda how it works. Headlining from the jump is a risky move for anyone.

Makonnen is going through this right now. Remember trinidad james? I listened to one buyer go on for an hour about how he lost money on his show, and that's when he was still getting radio spins. Most of the buyers ive met doing 500-2500 capacity shows, they are small operations. They can't afford to lose on you twice. Just a tip from someone who works in the industry.

@2:50 thanks for the info but I knew from this headline it was about ticket sales..,,firstly, the performer has to be likeable. Secondly, shit that sells in backwoods markets don't have the same outcome as the more popular markets for a non artist especially.... That's what she gets tryna ride Wendy's coat tails like structured entertaining is easy bc she made it on unstructured reality tv......Not mad at her tryna maximize her 5 minutes but in the words of the late, Nate Dogg.....Times up

Whoa, how the mighty has fallen. If she has real talent, a good team or plain ol' good luck she'll overcome and find something to keep working. If all else fails she could always drive for Uber or Lyft: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J8RW2s6Ykwc

Welp knee knee will learn that a bird in the and beats two in a bush. phnee phnee should have learned from Kandi who has mega bank for a long time to pay cash upfront for her house. That $750k down payment should have purchased a nice home in Georgia and her family welfare would be relatively secure.

I have a dog. I watch his behavior and I learn a lot. When I'm feeding him he is careful to not bite my hand, he slows down and gauges the distance. When I open the door he waits to see if I'm going out before he makes a move, and steps back so I can lead.

I say all that to say that fnee fnee was biting all that hands that feed her Greggs and Andy's, etc. In fact has any one seen Gregg> Are they still together? He is still in the basement? She tried to lead when she should have followed while still being ahead of the class.

Phlnee Phlnee had low self esteem. She was elevated an thought she was at the top but was only in the middle. Room to go up slowly or fall to the bottom fast.
