in love confused!
New sources have come forth to reveal that yesterday's On The Run weak ticket sale reports were false — even though the Ticketmaster website displays tons of open seats at sky high prices!
Apparently, Jay Z and Beyoncé's co-headlining stadium tour is projected to be one of the highest grossing concerts of the year.
OTR, which is set to begin in Miami on June 25th and wrap in San Francisco on August 5th, has already grossed over $86 million, and will probably rake in over $100 million from just 19 shows.
In a recent statement to dash falsehoods, Live Nation (who's producing the tour) offered up their stats and insight:
"The On The Run Tour opens next Wednesday in Miami’s Sun Life Stadium to over 48,000 fans, then rolls to Cincinnati to a sellout crowd of more than 37,000 fans, and on July 1st more than 50,000 fans will pack Boston’s Gillette Stadium. With sellout nights across North America, these first three shows are indicative of the strong demand. Overall, the tour has sold well over 750,000 tickets, grossing more than $90 million, and has unprecedented VIP and Platinum ticket sales."
Sources predict the shows will end up selling at 90% capacity for most arenas, which would still be deemed successful in the stadium tour game — especially since they're a challenge to fill for any event.
The insiders also agreed that if Jay and Bey hadn't toured separately in 2013, the shows might've sold out immediately!
Interesting food for thought, no??
We want them to be successful. We know they'll be successful. But we guess it would be silly to pass any more judgement until the final numbers come in!
Ticket sales aside, we can't wait for the epic show!!
