Is this what the truth feels like?
Gwen Stefani kicked off her first show of the This Is What the Truth Feels Like tour at the Xfinity Center in Boston, Massachusetts on Tuesday (July 12), which she also live-streamed on Yahoo.
For months, rumors of low ticket sales followed the blonde bombshell. Reports swirled her team slashed the ticket prices to $40 for four, but apparently that wasn’t enough. Perez Hilton reports Live Nation reps were handing out free tickets before the show started and sectioned off the back of the amphitheater and relocated those fans to the front to make it appear fuller. One fan submitted this:
On the one hand, it’s a huge bummer to hear Gwen isn’t selling out like she used to, but on the other… she’s an incredible live performer and no statistics or figures can get in the way of that.
