Beyonce and Jay Z Dogged by Slow Ticket Sales


Earlier this his week Beyonce and Jay Z kicked off their On the Run 2 Tour to slow ticket sales [click here if you missed that].

The Carter's continue to slump...

From The Sun
The couple kicked off their 48-date run at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium a week ago with plenty of empty seats on view.
Hundreds of seats remain available for this evening’s concert at Manchester’s Etihad Stadium and for the 66,000-capacity London Stadium on Saturday.
Promoter Live Nation has spent millions on the concerts, but only nine out of the remaining 46 dates in Europe and North America have sold out.
Fans outside their Glasgow concert reported being handed freebies while others said they were offered upgrades for nothing.

I know they wish they could hang it up but with all that money they owe, they're gonna be slaving going on tours giving lackluster performances for a while lmao.

I wonder what is happening I feel like everyone was worshiping her as their QUEEN and now I feel all of a sudden everyone is turning their backs on them. I used to see a post on her and nothing but positive comments. Now they are all bad. I have not ever been one of the bey hive but I did like her earlier music so I never got the whole obsession with her. So its just strange to me how it seems everyone is turning so quickly.

That is human nature. People love you today and hate you the next. Whether you are rich or poor, people are like the weather and change on you in a minute.

That's life tho....

Bottom line is they are both has beens in the UK. Nobodies checking for them here. They lost respect for Beyonce taking back an no good cheating n*gga them preaching to the choir about female empowerment. And they are way too full of themselves to the point where you can see it from 1000 miles away. I always knew that though, so never been a fan of either. But now the cracks are showing and their real characters are showing through and people are over them. She has no knew music and his album flopped. She needs to make real music some soul, funk music and he needs to stop managing her and get back with Kanye. It seems they need each other more than Jay and Bey need each other. Together they are no longer a power couple, but two desperate fools looking for a cash grab. CANCEL THE TOUR.

Go cook your husband a home cooked meal. Take Blue to the park. Go to church on Sunday or something, Geez.

By default and being from H-town, I'm going to automatically be down for Bey.

But she has dominated and the powers that be have saturated us with her presence for the last decade. She should be like Sade and go away for awhile, I mean a long time and let us miss her.

But for some reason, she won't be still tho. Maybe her and Jay are really bound to the labels and are in a shit load of debt?? I guess as long as she is in reasonable health, she can keep it going while she can.

@1:00 Did you say here? as in... you're currently in the UK? ummmm dont believe you you need more people...FKN TROLLS smh...
People dont have spare cash to spend on extra expensive tickets... thats it... no more no less. Whether yahll like it or not Jay is the G.O.A.T in hip hop and Bey is the queen...they earned that But they bugging with those ticket prices FOH...

She has the resume and stats.

Why are they still trying to sell out stadiums? BeyoncΓ© unlike what your stupid stans say you are not Michael Jackson. You can not sell out a stadium. Please get that through your thick skull. And your husband has retired like 10 times and he's still here. I tell you reality is something else. Y'all ain't popping like y'all think.

Lol I've been reading RWS for about as long as Beyonce solo career and i ain't never seen a ppst filled with positive comments. Do not try and sell that lie.

They're not up there like Tina Turner, The Rolling Stones, Patti LaBelle, Hall and Oates etc... Nobody wants to continue to hear their old songs. Put out new material Jayonce, it may help your sales.

It's because she's a liar and a thief. She can't be nominated until 25 years after her first album anyway. F her.

Anonymous said...

no one stays on top forever..and for someone as mediocre/unoriginal as bey considering she's done well. at this point she should be moving on to other things. but she probably can't even if she wanted too. they have financial obligations. i think someone here posted once they are pretty much living off livenation dime and livenation wants their money back with interests. they will be sweating on stage for a minute. sucks to be them.

I call bullshit. If they are in FACT in debt with Live Nation, that would be going backwards. There is no way these two are giving away freebies and upgrades. *Yawn

Why would someone want to be around all those people to hear songs from 5-15 years ago? I didn't even think they could get the type of crowds that are in the videos. They've been declining for what, 35 years now?

Trust me this heffa is working on a new album. When it comes out, just compare the sells to Adele's. Lol

Hey, what's all this "debt" talk going on in here? Didn't she tell y'all? Old girl said there was a billion dollars on that elevator...then had magazines print that they are actual billionaires. She also told y'all she might be a Bill Gates in the making. But noooo...Y'all wont listen. Bish said she's got so many benji's she can't spend'em.

First they over charge for tickets to their show hundreds for nose bleed and a thousand or more floor seats

Second I'm tired of the same type show every few years. The first year it was nice now this repeat ish no thanks


With all things it has to come to an end, it's time for her to go on the road with another entertainer or a few to make it more interesting

They are simply finished their arrogance, disconnect, deceit and poor stunting is a turn off then they want to charge motherfuckers high dollars to keep them doing that shit. They are both unlikeable they claim to want to be private but do the most to move in the dark with reflectors on. How many famous people never mention their kids sometimes you don't know they have kids and it is no big deal. Its not what you do its how you do it. BeyoncΓ© is a staright bitch from the way she treated her bandmates, step father, folding babygate, who the fuck bite me gate, to let me stand her like an idiot while my sister beats my man, all the way to she cant read or talk, look at the back of my kids heads and the shabby shadey way she dissed Kanye who even though he is a nut seem to have been her greatest clit rider I mean hell even Kelly was not jumping in lil white girls face over her.

Your outright delusional if you think Beyonce or Jay-Z combined have Half a Billion in LIQUID cash. Jay is in the whole deep to Live Nation, yea he signed back on but the devil is in the details. He basically has to be their slave and continue to tour for the next ten years, not to mention that won’t pan out because his music isn’t selling. Tidal was a flop and scam, no telling how much was lost there and the company has not turned a profit.

Beyonce on the other hand is still a slave to Sony. Not much else to say abt that, go check what MJ thought of them for confirmation of just how shady they are. And MJ OWNED half of Sony!!!

They will be lucky to last 10 more days. 10 more years of empty tours?

^^^^ 4:59- Treated her band mates and Matthew wrongly? Puhhhleaze, Matthew was the asshole but let me show you interviews from Kelly, Letoya, Latavia and Farrah on how she treated them vs Matthew. "HE" and a little bit of Tina's input was the problem. The bitch's shit stinks like everyone else's but don't blame favoritism towards her and against her band mates and sibling from her father on her.

@2:54 PM. Music today has this kind of strategic plan; a calculation that's line into marketing for the corporate elites, of course. That line is with someone who has a willing ego to sell their soul for them to market a target group of people. Added with additional s3xism or feminism bringing favors with their celebrity status. So The elites promote our own everyday culture, wrap it up like a nice package of their gimmicks to sell it back to us for their wealth (liveNation). It started with MC Hammer ( on cereals, cartoons, etc..research it) from that; they've learned from their failure.So that energy was first created giving this temporary false of hope on everyday people who are easily distracted; especially those who are really oppressed. Black people who are feeling the "slayage" is only fans for their entertainment purpose; not knowing they are targeted. Nothing positive about insulting peoples' intelligence for greed who's really feeling oppressed financially or mentally. It is not positive that they obvious use Beyonce/ Jay z who is really only for entertainment and a willing participant of the oppressor. So people who are forcibly able to acknowledge their celebrity status through involvement at every angle from their PR stunts is not impressed. Those who's optimizing them enough through media have peoples' opinions on seeing this is a pattern of schemes. This is known as being over-rated which has selfishly shut-down most the industry using it like a sport. The opinions of others involved should not be of your concern. In which the norm today is not helping young women on how to be modest, humble, sober or keepers of their home...or to teach the children to admonish HATEFUL behavior and to just love God...or older adults to love and honor their husband's worth...It is vanity and self absorbed activity...sexual promiscuous crude and vulgar antics ,self promotion,self grandiose/narcissism,a lost in today from self-ego driven greed, a run-a-muck! Which makes the 80's and 90's era seem peacefully and blissful.

I know that Beyonce and Jay are not Trump supporters but there could be a bit of backlash going on. The Brits are very angry at Trump and are planning massive protests when he comes to visit. Also, Trump has threatened tariffs on American allies including those in the Group of Seven (G7). I don't know how widespread it is but Canadians are talking about canceling travel to the United States and boycotting American made goods.

“I remember, at times -- someone caught it on video -- when I was trying to get my part in the booth and Bey was actually in there sitting in the corner of the booth trying to help me get it,” Luckett reminisced. “You know, whatever this note was. But she was in there supporting me the whole time. And that's what a group is. That’s the beauty of the group.

@4:59 Farrah
She claimed that after Matthew Knowles and his team started “coming down” on her after a bout with the flu, the singer decided she had had it with the hyper-controlling girl group Svengali: “It’s not a way you would want somebody treating your 18-year-old daughter fresh out of the hospital."

@4:59 - Kelly
The 36-year-old singer told Vogue Australia that she talks with the women all the time.

"Like all the time. Every week. We talk, literally. We are truly sisters. They are my sisters. I talk to them, I seek advice from them, I call them when I need them, when I don't need them I call them, when I want a girl's night. I call them for everything," Kelly explained.

@4:59- Michelle
Everybody was pushing each other to do and be their very, very best. When Beyonce does something, it’s because she knows that if she can do it, everybody else on the stage can do it. Somebody might have to rehearse a little longer than others or go over the music parts a little longer.

You don't have to like her but there was never any real beef with her and any of her bandmates; Matthew is the common denominator that fired and got fired. She was a kid, "his vision was mainly focused on her"!

Anonymous said...

She stood up to him because without her back to Xerox he would go. they could all 'say' anything in some of those interviews they did as a group she came across as an asshole them bitches had to bow down to. Cutting them off, rolling her eyes, correcting them all without tack and most notably when Michelle fell and the bitch just stepped over. Fuck a Beyonce bitch best days are behind her.

@5:19 The G7 and all those other Eurocratic countries wouldnt even be standing now if it wasnt for America helping them in WW2. The disarmed Europeans and Canadians are of no threat to these United States whatsoever!

Now far as a boycott of Jay/Bey, doubt it. Most ppl just are fucking with the same tired ass elitist garbage that these two spew.I mean when the beacon of this New age Feminism (beyonce) doesnt even have command of basic English, LOL it speaks volumes...

@7:05- All those interviews were AFTER the fact, they didn't have to kiss her sequined ass!!! It was Matthew, the end. He's probably why she is arrogant too, okay she's grown so I won't put that on him!

Oh Stop - all artists are having troubling selling tickets Mainly because they are overpriced. That's not Jay and Beyonce fault - it's Live Nation.

prissa o said...

Okay. I just watched part of the 1st video (not a fan of either and refuse to waste but so much time). The problem is there appears to have been no concept or thought put into this. Like most commenters stated, they’ve seen this before on OTR part 1 - why do this again when:

1. There is no new music
2. After Lemonade exposed Jay to be a cheating sleeze
3. Their fans are from totally different spectrums

See a truly creative manager would have told them since they both exposed cracks in the facade (i.e. - infidelity on J’s part and “I am strong woman Queen” despite this facially challenged, wandering peen I’m stuck with from Bey) the smart thing to do would have been to have Bey release new music (because although Jay prolly won’t admit it - she is the draw. He is not) with some features with Jay re-committing to each other. Then the tour would make sense. You can’t decide to expose the flaws then come out all “this is love” without really addressing wtf happened. Maybe a little collab album with 7 songs like Kanye did. Nothing major but something new. And it would have to have at least 3 banging hits.

But really, if I was a concert going person, I would see Bey but NOT with Jay. He just doesn’t do it for me.

But trust & believe if/when Bey pulls the trigger and leaves him - her popularity will EXPLODE. It will be “strong mother doing it in her own”. Honestly, I think Bey leaving Jay will destroy him. She is a bigger star and has a greater reach for fans. And the stans with REALLY support her if she leaves him. And what can he do about it? What would be his appeal after Beyonce? He knows not to try to diss her. That would be career suicide. So would would be his recourse if she leaves???

If those Cathy White rumors are true, Bey just may be in real danger if she ever tries to leave.

7:47 Jay DETESTS Beyonce. That man Envies her. He hates the fact that she is more famous than him. He hates the fact that he is the "woman" in the relationship. Bowing down to whatever she says or does because she is the breadwinner! He hates the fact that she is winning overtime while his popularity is in decline. He is a leech and he will never leave her because he cannot find anyone with beyonce's fame and money to fully control because he isnt attractive.

8:28 According to CDAN, someone said he tried poisoning her when they go on dinner dates. Allegedly.

Man I tell you I was on a Chrissie post where some insane and deranged stains were trying to say there is nothing wrong with the Becky with the good hair line trying to say it's really a dig, in what universe bbbbbs and if it's not saying black hair is bad, just look at the vids with the seas of beckies loudly and proudly singing that part. So you 5 roaches don't count if the interpretation by most is reinforcinng white supremacy whch is what wild azz dancer Beyonce does

She and her mom are childish colorstruck clowns and has polluted the community with their lowly dribble

The Real Fedup said...

How the mighty has fallen! She do not comprehend the concept of disappearance! Make folks miss you! Reinvent your look and brand and bring new music before she tour! No one going to waste their hard earn coins to watch the same shit over and over again. Some folks don’t care to see no Jay z let’s me
honest here. She’s delusional. Only Micheal Jackson can pull a tour of her that magnitude can do a large tour with no new music! Even then—- he put something out new.

Beyonce your time is old stale—- nothing new. Heck change up your look for heaven sakes. Janet done it. Madonna done it. Like no one wants to see a woman decades later dress the same and dance the same old shot. Dam...

The more I hear about Beyonce, the more convinced am I that she is a s/he.

First of all Beyonce is probably makingore money than Jay Z now, it's known that she buys all the publishing rights to her music she would have to pay him alimony. He would have to pay a heavy child support bill. Plus he's lining her up even if they divorce he's collecting my on the royalty collaboration albums forever. I see a lot more collaboration in her future.
