All of this, according to a number of sources including Live Nation, a leading place to buy tickets, is simply inaccurate.
Here's what's really up:
30 shows in North America are on pace for sellout business even though they won't play until June and July. Furthermore, not only are hip-hop/R&B shows historically known to be late-selling, the entire live business has trended more to a late-buying sales pattern during the economic downturn.
Well this is certainly fab news for those who are dying to see RiRi this summer!
We're glad to hear all of this, because Rihanna has DEF been working hard on this tour and it looks INcredible!
Rihanna, keep it up!
Will U be seeing her on tour??
