American Idol Hits Another All-Time Low! Tour Tickets Aren't Selling?!

| Filed under: TV NewsMusic MinuteAmerican IdolSad Sad

american idol ticket sales at a low

Is this the end?

Considering pretty much NOTHING is getting better with American Idol, this NEW news isn't going to help the already struggling show.

We already told you about how American Idol Live canceled some of the dates for their summer tour, but that's the least of the issues. Of the tour dates remaining, the tickets aren't even getting sold!

No money, no show!

Ticket sales allegedly hit a high in 2011 but only dropped by about 10% the next year. However, this year, ticket sales are reportedly already down 347%!

It doesn't take a business mastermind to figure out that those numbers mean business is bad!

The summer tour is still set to start on July 19th, but fans better start buying up tickets if they want to keep the sinking ship above water.

Otherwise, enjoy what just might be the last Idol tour!

Do YOU think a new judging panel will change the show around??

    Bad judges, mediocre talent equals no interest.

    LIL! I don't care. And that's the problem. No one cares. When they first started, they were new and it was fun. But after all these years, and they got rid of Paula & Simon is gone, so there was not so much drama and no one really caught on like they did. Bringing in all these celebrities did nothing for them.

    Plus, now you have other shows doing similar, so American Idol isn't that interesting. And, honestly. When someone as talented as Adam Lambert, or Carrie Underwood, or Chris Daltry, or Jennifer Hudson can't win, and all these other random people who just don't compare, yet they win? Who gives a damn anymore? No one.

    If they are smart, they will take the AI franchise to a smaller network somewhere out there on cable. Somewhere where a smaller audience will still seem huge, and try to restart it. They might squeeze out a couple more years that way, but it's really over. The people in charge need to be thinking about how to replace it with something else entirely different. Bye, Bye, AI

    It's impossible for ticket sales to be down 347%. If ticket sales are down 100%, that means they sold zero tickets. Check your decimals. :-)

    Look at the "talent", looks like the lowest common denominator

    American Idol lost all credibility when Phil Phillips won the last American Idol - I've heard far more talented karaoke singers who would blow him right out of the water, and the Asian gal and black gay guy sang circles round him during the finals.

    So, they're paying 247% to go on tour now? Listen, Idol is competing for money that the economy doesn't appear to have in abundance or want to let go of right now. The demographic that would attend these is likely hurting. As far as I'm concerned, after all the money this franchise has made, they could put them on for free to give back as a thank you to all those who supported them through the years…but not likely to happen.

    Nikki Minaj killed that show.

    347%?? Might want to do some math homework. But what do you mean the ticket sales are low? Nicki Minaj isn't going on tour with them. I thought the rednecks were screaming that the shows downfall was all Nicki's fault. Lol guess not! The reason for low sales is probably the talent of the dudes. They should have selected more girls from the semi-finals and maybe two of the guys. The girls were a lot more talented this year.

    This year they wanted a girl to win so much that it was so obvious that the show was staged. Nobody likes that and the judges sucked big time too. Revamp the entire show or do one last season with Randy, Paula and Simon and be done.

    347% is impossible you fuckin' IDIOT

    The only thing that is going to save AI is cancelling it and not continuing to embarrass themselves with a substandard p.o.s
