Rih Rih Can’t Sell Tickets? So Far From The Truth

Here’s an update to the story I published about Rihanna can’t sell tickets. Word is from Live Nation is that

There are 56 sold out Rihanna dates in Europe.

64% of tickets for Rihanna’s domestic shows have already been sold. And they’re selling at the rate of 700 a day.

Rihanna’s Boston show is four months out. Projections say that 90% of the seats will be sold by showtime.  Also, the Post story said Rihanna needed to sale 15,000 tickets to break even, but Bob reports only 13,500 seats are available for sale.  And so far, Rihanna had sold 5,800 tickets for Boston, not the reported 3,700 tickets.  Take that Mediatakeout and let Cerror know too.

Hey Rih Rih, since ya can’t earn na money in the US why ya don’t give the Caribbean a try

Just as she did last year, Rihanna is having a tough time selling tickets to her upcoming concert tour. According to Page Six, Rihanna’s management have advised her to cancel tour dates in the United States because ticket sales are too slow.

This surprises me because Rihanna’s Stans, er, Navy is at least 5 million strong. But, apparently, they are not confident enough in her singing ability to buy her tickets?

This is yet another setback for the immature redhead. My inside source tells me that Rihanna is taking the cancellations very hard. 2011 is just not her year.

Sources say after poor US concert pre-sales last month, Rihanna has been advised by her day-to-day manager, Jay Brown, to cancel domestic dates on her “Loud” tour.

“It has been a big disappointment,” our source said. “The ticket sales in big US 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.”
