Live Nation Responds To Reports About On The Run Tour’s Struggling Ticket Sales
Since Solangegate, it has been reported that Jay Z and Beyoncé’s forthcoming On The Run Tour is facing a severe struggle as far as ticket sales go. A statement recently released on behalf of Live Nation, however, implies that those reports are erroneous.
“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,” Live Nation said in a statement released to Billboard.
“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 have also revealed to the site that as of Tuesday, June 17, the tour has racked up nearly $86 million in ticket sales. The source also adds that if ticket sales continue at the same pace, the tour is expected to gross $100 million from just 19 shows. This breaks down to an average attendance of nearly 45,000 per show and $5.2 million per night in sales.
According to Forbes, this tour is likely to be the second most successful tour EVER.
