Rihanna May Be Forced To Cancel Loud Tour Dates Due To Poor Ticket Sales!

| Filed under: RihannaMusic MinuteSad Sad


Not again!

Although Rihanna's Loud tour was expected to do better than last year's Last Girl On Earth Tour, reports are now suggesting that once again, the singer is being urged to cancel a number of the US dates because of poor pre-sale numbers!

Cities like Boston have apparently only sold 3,700 tickets, and to break even, she'll need to sell at least 15,000 more!

A source explains:

"It has been a big disappointment. The ticket sales in big U.S. cities like Boston are so bad, they will barely cover basics like the lighting and other arena costs. Tour managers are begging local radio stations to do giveaways."

Ouch! That does NOT sound good!

Here's hoping that these numbers can turn around - and FAST!

We want to see this show!

    she was always second rate….

  2. 2

    In the words of Willy nelson…"Keep it Simple" Don't fucking book arenas then. Play some large theater's instead.

  3. 3

    Haha guess no one wants to hear her sing live! :p lol i mean like vids n shit she actually sounds good but shit u ever her her try sing live hardly any talent there!

  4. 4

    sounds like people are starting to realize she's a no talent hack that's dumb to boot…….

  5. 5

    She can sing but she doesn't have the "package". What sets her apart from the rest..her hair color? Who is going to pay 40..50..100 + dollars to se a cheaper version of Beyonce or Janet Jackson (in her prime). She needs to go back and sing background vocals or…

  6. 6

    No one can stand her, that's why. She is unlikable in every way. Her Q rating must be something like 0.

  7. Heh says – reply to this


    she needs a co-headliner ..she shouldnt have pissed Katy Perry off

  8. 8

    Sideshow Bob (aka rihanna) still can't sell you have to wonder who is buying her music when she can't sell out arenas? Strange.

  9. 9

    awwww poor riri!!!!

  10. 10

    que chafaaaa !!!

  11. 11

    Her music really isn't that great anymore… :(

  12. 12

    It's over with her career

  13. 13

    Hahahahaha YES

  14. 14

    Hmmm… maybe purchasing that 12 bedroom mansion wasn't such a bright idea.

  15. 15

    See… it's already happening. This is why I thought it dumb that she would buy a mansion like that when 10 years down the road she'll no longer be able to keep up on the bills. She's already slowing down and she's not even into her 30's.

  16. 16

    too much ego, not enough talent = poor sales

  17. 17

    It's because tickets to see her are WAY too expensive!! No one who wants to see her can afford $75 for one ticket. Not to mention, she's pretty awful live.

  18. 18

    This goes for everyone…. how about lowering ticket prices so people can afford them and get rid of all the expensive pyrotechnics? Makes some sense, no??

  19. 19

    maybe it's because people don't want to WASTE money on seeing a performer who can't even sing LIVE. She sounds like absolute TRASH.

  20. jkf says – reply to this


    she needs to act real trashy and let her tits hang out like lady gaga to sell records.

  21. 21

    Re: Douche Hunter

    Agreed. She needs smaller venues. Doubt her ego will allow that, though.

  22. 22

    I'm all for doing your own thing style wise, but that hair really does look ridiculous.

  23. 23

    i never liked her. She is annoying. Her songs sound the same and are whinny/repetitive. She doenst even sound good, and she acts like shes a goddess and shes just not

  24. 24

    1) She can't sing
    2) She can't dance
    3) she can't command a stage or an audience in any way.
    It would be much bigger news if she was selling well.
    Why is she still relevant,again?

  25. 25

    Perhaps rethinking the clown hair, and be more real!
    Weaves and nasty dirty ass wiggs are not the way to go.

  26. 26

    dear Rihanna, like you said to Ciara.. good luck booking more arenas!!
    LOL ahahahhahahahahahhaahhahahha TAKE THAT BITCH! karmaa is a hoee!

  27. 27

    I totally agree that Rihanna doesn't have a great live voice but to be honest, who does in this day and age? There aren't many people out there who kills it live with the performance as well as live vocals these days. Rihanna is the best at what she does and that's putting out hits. Say what you will about her but there aren't many who's touching her when it come to hit songs which she has PLENTY of. Hell, even the great Madonna isn't the best singer but she understands persentation and showmanship so when you go see her you're entertained. You gotta have one or the other(amazing vocals or a killer show) and that's where Rhianna's dropping the ball, she has neither! I honestly think it's the type of songs she's recording now that she's finidng hard to translate on stage vocally because i saw her back in '08 and was suprised that she actually sounded good live. There are singers who's cds you'll buy and singers who you'll go see live. But i give respect where respect is due she puts out good music which is what it all boils down to. Just check her resume' of hits. She has what…NINE number one songs and i'm not even going to try to count the number of top 10 songs she has. Lets face it, as long as she's banging out hits, she aint going nowhere.

  28. 28

    She's actually really good live. It's just she keeps changing her image too much and her fans can't keep up. Also her shows are too expensive… she's just not there yet.

  29. 29

    Hmmmm, I wonder why she had bad ticket sales……..it's called LOWER THE TICKET PRICES! DUH! They are way too expensive and with the economy people aren't gonna pay a ton of money to see a celeb when they have bills to pay or families to take care of.

  30. 30

    the cheapest ticket for the boston show after tax is 90$ per ticket - no way i'd pay that.

  31. 31

    Well I called this a few weeks ago when she spent a zillion dollars on a HUGE mansion…Though my timing was off..I said in 2 years she'd be having to sell it..
    Frankly I don't think she's that smart or a major talent you'd fork out big bucks to see…I think alot of people lost respect for her after the Chris Brown allegations…Lost respect for both of them actually.

  32. 32

    Lmao no one wants to see a studio magician live. They're terrible live, hence the name studio magician.

  33. 33

    It's because she sucks, and her music sucks, too.

  34. @v@ says – reply to this


    Her tunes and her image used to be really good. The direction she's been pointed in for a few years has been poor, imo. She was on a roll when she started out, and then after umbrella, poof.

  35. 35

    Wow, surprisingly everyone here is right. and this bitch is booooring.

  36. 36

    Oh honey….give up the Red locks…it is getting very old…all you do is change your hair styles….the Red no longer rocks GF….get a cle!! Ask someone who will be honest with you and stop coloring it yourself!

  37. 37

    her new songs are crap and sound exactly like everything else she's ever released. she sounds horrible live. she doesn't have a very good stage presence. it's no wonder people don't want to see her. she's boring.

  38. 38

    I think people purchase her online music after it has been electronically enhanced, but they prefer to keep their hard earned dollars when it comes to listening to her sing out of tune live while dancing around stage in her HO type outfits.

  39. 39

    I hope it doesn't get canceled. i would love to see her live. Maybe play smaller venues and lower ticket costs.

  40. Laury says – reply to this


    The problem with Rihanna is that she's not someone people would pay good money to see live. She doesn't have the charisma and stage presence of, say, Beyoncé. I mean, she looks cute in her videos and all, but I wouldn't pay to see in her concert.

  41. 41

    HAHAHAHA!!!! it want even a month ago the cocky bitch was teasing ciara she couldnt sell a concert. looks like they now have alot in common. she must feel like an asshole….

  42. 42

    Re: Manda756
    How has she changed her image? Her hair has been Red for years now…and the new cuts are very unflattering!

  43. 43

    There must be some mistake.Rihanna's a rockstar.She said so herself.

  44. 44


  45. sanaa says – reply to this


    She needs to understand she is a virtual pop star that's it, she has nothing to offer live, there is no voice, no dancing, no real magnetism and message.

  46. 46

    She can't sing or dance and has 0 stage presence. This is a surprise to no one.

  47. 47

    Her last two performances at the awards show were HORRIBLE. She cant sing live and has little talent. She can thank Chris Brown for any attention she ever got. Over Her already!

  48. 48

    Well, she sings better LIVE than Britney. I blame that whole Chris Brown tragedy / travesty / debacle.

  49. 49

    LMAO!!! So much for your LOVING fans LOL. Ah How the mainstream makes me laugh

  50. 50

    Shes only serves the purpose of being a chorus singer! I wouldn't pay to her in concert!

  51. 51

    She sucks.

  52. 52

    Iv said it before and I'll say it again Chris Brown beat the talent out of her…she hasn't had a hit since….and I'll add he has had multipal hits since….maybe if she got surgery on the forehead and stopped sounding like a whiny kid when she sings more people would listen to her.

  53. 53

    ok, i'll play along: *gets ready to feign shock* what?!? rihanna, one of the most talented, creative, and innovative singers EVER is having trouble selling seats?? but she's filled massive arenas before!!
    REALITY: this girl can't sing worth shit. she's gorgeous, i'll give you that. the girl is weird and exotic= only reason for a music career at all. why does anyone think jolie is still selling movie tickets? not because she's one of the most talented actresses around, i'll tell you that. and that's why rihanna has a career at all: because she's gorgeous. nothing wrong with that, but please don't pretend she's fucking Gods gift to music when she can't sing crap

  54. 54

    can't say im surprised. She has some catchy songs with i have purchased but she can't sing very well live so she isn't worth the money.

  55. 55

    Re: Eric92 – OH SNAP!!!!!!! HAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!

  56. 56

    Times up Rihanna NO ONE LIKES YOU!!! You turned into a slut ah too bad!! Do you think it was her hair????

  57. @v@ says – reply to this


    When times are tough, acts might need to band together on a double or triple or even quadruple bill, like an old revue, to give bang for the buck to bring people out. The prices can be outrageous for these financial times. Sixty or seventy-five bucks a seat with a filled stadium is a hell of a lot better than nothing out of $250.00. That's why Ozzfest does so well, and the bands have a blast.

  58. 58

    Is Perez surprised? the girl's voice is mediocre and her stage performance is sub par.
    THis totally confirms She is not as good as Beyonce. It will take alot of talent and personality to pull a Beyonce. Girl may not have enough right now, hope her handlers are programming her well! :)

  59. 59


  60. 60

    Re: Eric92 – yeah she said it to Ci and it came right back and bit HER in the ass! Ha ha!

  61. 61

    good. she sucks ass

  62. 62

    Why is it a surprise that someone who can't sing nor dance (NBA halftime show was laughable)? Only mindless fools like Perez can be confused by this.

  63. 63

    Good. Maybe people are finally starting to wise up and stop listing to all this regurgitated pop shit.

  64. 64

    Good! She's been over-rated for years. She can't sing and she's as dumb as a bag of rocks.
    Looking like Side-Show Bob and having green teeth doesn't help either.

  65. 65

    Re: PalmSprings – Um no Britney has stage presence and she many not sing live but atleast she dances. Rihanna should'nt sing live EVER im sorry but she sucks

  66. 66

    Sorry RiRi guess everyone got ticket to NKOTBSB instead!!

  67. Tasos says – reply to this


    It is and continues to be the economy, stupid.

  68. Alsi says – reply to this


    she has no stage presence! i've watched her a couple of times on award shows and all she does is stand there and sing. she may do a couple of steps but thats it. who wants to waste their money and time on that cheap preformance. janet, britney, madonna these are not women who are known for their voices. but what they lack in vocal talent they make up for in amazing stage preformances.

  69. 69

    wow…this is bad….everyone is broke. i know im just barely getting by. i think ill check out how much tickets are cuz i

  70. 70

    hey rihanna, remember that dig at ciara about the stage she can seem to sell out? well aint karma a bitch?

  71. 71

    Re: Alsi – Her "dancing" is to pace aimlessly bend over, then squat like she going to take a dump then hump something or sit on something. The dancers seem annoyed because they are doing all the work.

  72. 72

    No one want's to pay money to see this nonsense. She's terrible. She was terrible on last girl on earth and she's terrible now. The only reason she got this shiteouos album to platinum was by resulting to nonstop overexposure and people are sick of her. It's boring, it's old and she needs to go away and learn to sing or dance. How can you not be able to do either? Why do you feel the need to declare endlessly how sexy you are? It's annoying. She sounds like bad Karoake live and anyone high or drunk can sing any of her mindless songs. Stop giving this whore awards for this stupidity. Nothing she does deserves a grammy or any other award other than Rodeo Clown award. I guess she is trying to find that tip she tried to give Ciara. She really needs to thank Jay-Z and Chris Brown for any attention she get's, but her fall is imminent.

  73. 73

    LOL this is fake.. E! News reported the shows are selling out… they will even add more tourdates cuz some of them are already sold out.. Perez u have nothing else to say huh? yall are mad.. this LOUD tour will have 9 shows @ the London's O2 arena one of the biggest indoor arenas in all Europe! :D

  74. 74

    Piccola pricipessa Miss Minogue is the best singer the best show who always set standard for music .. Rihanna caca follow what she does;

  75. 75

    its because sisters charging WAY TOO MUCH for tickets. thats what i dont get about artists thinking who they are being able to turn around and charge 125 plu in detroit no less. i mean dont get me wrong, i always pay great money to secure great floor seats to see the best but, i actually caught gaga in sept for the second highest price and was on the floor and 15 ft from her! so, this year i suffered an accident and i havent been working and money's tight so i might actually try cheap seats which ive never done but just to see how they are, maybe it will still be fun!

  76. 76

    She's to trashy for kids to come see her and no adult is shocked by her garbage she just a bore.

  77. 77

    HAHAHAHAHAAHHHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!! she can't sing or dance live, who'd pay to see her talentless ass. that hair color is enough to keep people away.

  78. 78

    Holy Shiz!! just under 4000 tickets!! That's aweful. I agree with Douche Hunter (haha) why are you trying to sell out effen arenas????? She's really nothing special. She's just pre-packaged, unoriginal pop crap. Who cares

  79. 79

    Re: Alex Martínez – Yeah in Europe dumbass you just said it yourself!!! There are some cancelled in the U.S. !!

  80. 80

    Re: jkf – Dont think that's why Gaga sells records tard

  81. 81

    i dont understand PEREZ HILTON is such a big site for media…you would think these commets back up actual stats…but they dont

    1. RIHANNAS DOING GREAT. she just bought a 13 million dollar house…[that may not eveen be the full price but i know it has 11 bedrooms!]

    2. PEOPLE on here talk sooooooo much unessecary shit about CHRIS BROWN YET….HIS ALBUM IS # 1 & BOTH his songs are TOP TEN..

  82. 82

    Re: jkf – She's got a fricken song called S&M or something. She's hella trashy with tits hanging out everywhere too!! Gaga never had nude pix leaked of her all over the net either. sorry, try again jfk.

  83. 83

    HAH Ciara's gonna love this one. And I'm not surprised by this, I think she fucked up by following the crowd and making those horrible new songs. I used to like her so much when she first came out.

  84. 84

    Re: Yuji009 – Her Q rating??? Before you judge someone's intellect judge your own… Dumass… Its IQ

  85. 85

    Re: Alex Martínez – Thank you for letting these idiots know that… She's amazing live… Her music isn't pop live it all rock… And she has great stage presence… Rih Rih is queen!!!
