UPDATE: An updated report from In Touch claims Stefani's opening night in Massachusetts is only at 30% capacity.
“Only 5,000 tickets have been sold in a venue that holds 18,000 — and that was after the huge promotion in which her tickets were being sold discounted on Groupon,” said a source.
It actually doesn't take a tabloid site like In Touch to see what's going on. A quick glance at Ticket Master shows empty seating charts for a bunch of her upcoming shows.
Production delay excuse in 3... 2...
Is this what the truth feels like?
Last month, Gwen announced she's heading a tour this summer with Eve to promote her latest No. 1 record This Is What The Truth Feels Like. She'll begin the U.S. trek in Boston on July 12 and continue the run through mid-October where she'll finish up at The Forum in Los Angeles, that is... if there aren't any sudden "scheduling conflicts" or "production delays."
A music source is claiming her ticket sales are "horrifying."
The one-time judge on “The Voice” confronts what every touring act dreads before hitting the road, the source said — a sea of blue (the color for unsold seats) on Ticketmaster’s interactive seat map for each tour stop, interrupted by an occasional red dot signifying a resale seat.
Some fans are complaining the ticket prices are too high, which range from $39.95 - $149.95, allowing Groupon to step in and offer them at a discount.
Let's not blame the "poor" sales on ticket prices, but the locations Stefani has chosen. For instance in Las Vegas, Stefani will take the stage at the newly-launched T-Mobile Arena where the Billboard Music Awards will be hosted on Sunday. It seats 20,000...
Let's hope Gwen can pull through, because she's a brilliant (and respected) live performer.
Head over to TicketMaster and consider making plans to see Gwenny Gwen Gwen, will ya?
