The economy may be in ruins, but the Idols are doing just fine!
The Idols Live tour has consistently sold 82% of its tickets and grossed $11.2 million, fairing with last year's sales.
Extremely impressive considering that tickets range between $40.50 to $69.50, which runs a dollar higher than 2008's prices.
In the industry, "40% of tickets go unsold," said Billboard senior touring editor Ray Waddell. "They're doing better than average," especially since "these are baby acts on their first national tour, even if they've had the best exposure you can get."
The primary reason for these HUGE tickets sales?
Glambert, of course!
"The Adam Lambert fan base is incredibly avid," said a former Idol blogger. "That dedication is what sells tickets."
American Idol loser contestant Danny Gokey just wants everybody to get along - especially his fans with ones of Adam Lambert. His fans have gotten a little crazy Claymate and have been excessively bashing Glambert and his legion of fans.
In an interview, Danny admits it's "not cool" and wants both fanbases to find some common ground.
The problem seems to be that both sides are convinced there is an epic feud between the performers, but this is just not so. Danny says: "There's a lot of made-up stories about how me and Adam are behind the scenes, like, punching each other and fighting. And me and Adam are like, 'Uh, hi, guys! We're buddies! We're cool!'"
Once again, Twitter saved the day, as a lot of the mayhem has been smoothed over with the several video BubbleTweets they've done together and Danny's assistance when Adam found his Twitter hacked into.
What did celebrities do before those wonderful Twitter pages saved their reputations?
