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!

Sarah McLachlan Hopes For Lilith Fair Next Year!

Filed under: Music MinuteSarah McLachlan

Who knows? 2011 could be a much better year for them!

Even though the revival of Lilith Fair this year has been less than ideal, founder Sarah McLachlan is determined for it to work, and intends on doing it again in 2011!

She reveals:

“I should preface everything I say by saying I’m a live-in-the-moment kind of girl. We’re planning on doing it next year, talking about a five-year plan. Do any of us know where we’re going to be in 15 years? We’re all here right now, and that’s sort of where I’m at. We’re sort of trying to figure out what all the possibilities are this year. We came out loud and proud with a huge roster, with a lot of great artists and a lot of diversity. And came into a tricky time in touring.”

We're thrilled that you haven't let the tour's problems get you down, bb! We imagine re-starting something of this magnitude has its growing pains!

We'll keep our fingers crossed for next year! Keep your head up!

What a bummer! The ticket sales must be getting really rough!

The 2010 Lilith Fair Tour has announced the cancellation of ten upcoming shows!

Co-found Terry McBride explains:

“We are in the midst of one of the most challenging summer concert seasons with many tours being cancelled outright. Everyone involved with the tour would like to apologize to the fans and artists scheduled to play in these markets, and express appreciation for all the support for the festival’s return. Lilith remains the only tour of its kind, and we are confident that fans will be amazed by what each date has to offer.”

The all-woman music tour will no longer be playing in Salt Lake City, Montreal, Raleigh, Charlotte, West Palm Beach, Tampa, Birmingham, Austin, Houston, and Dallas. Refunds are available to those who already purchased tickets.

Rough!

What do U think?? Are U disappointed to see Lilith Fair under performing??

We doubt this will help the poor ticket sales, but…

Gym Class Heroes frontman and Katy Perry's jilted former boytoy Travis McCoy has been invited to replace Nicki Minaj supporting Rihanna on the road with the Swamp Thing otherwise known as Ke$ha for their Last Girl On Earth tour!

The trio will kick off the festivities on July 2nd in Auburn, Washington!

That is, if they can sell enough seats!

What do U think?? Is Travis a worthy addition to the Last Girl On Earth tour??

Sarah McLachlan Admits Lilith Fair Isn't Selling Well!

Filed under: Music Minute

Wow, that's honest!

Sarah McLachlan admitted that the ticket sales for the upcoming Lilith Fair are "pretty soft" right now despite some big names joining her on the tour.

She says:

"There's about 300 seats out of 16,000 or whatever that are $250. Then there's 9,000 that are 25 dollars, so come on. We're working our hardest to have reasonably priced tickets so it can be accessible for everyone and that people will want to come.

"We might get slaughtered, I don't know, but I kind of have blind faith in the fact we're putting on a really great show and we always have, and that will bring people in the end."

At least she's being optimistic!

Are U going to Lilith Fair this summer?

R.I.P.

Ouch! Another one bites the dust!

The latest Broadway show on the chopping block is Looped, headlined by Valerie Harper.

The show - which is based off of events surrounding actress Tallulah Bankhead's intoxicated attempt to record one line of dialogue for her final film, Die, Die, My Darling - only made it to New York in early February, but reportedly has not even made enough in ticket sales to cover the cost of production!

So unfortunate. We suppose the theatre just isn't what it used to be!

Better luck next time, guys!
