Hip Hop Rumors: On The Run Tour Ticket Sales Moving Slow

Could it be the Solange beatdown or this alleged mistress talk that’s got fans not buying?

According to Showbiz 411:

“Tickets are selling slow as molasses for the Jay Z-Beyonce “On the Run” tour of stadiums that’s set to start in 10 days.

Right now, there are over 11,000 tickets in motion on StubHub for the couple’s July 11th show at MetLife Stadium in the Meadowlands. Several more thousand are available for the second show, on July 12th.

Even on Ticketmaster.com’s own system, a quick check shows a very bald stadium, with lots of tickets for sale and official resale. Right now, getting to see the first couple of modern R&B is pretty simple. And relatively inexpensive.

All told, Beyonce and Jay Z are going to play 17 stadium dates in the US and two in Canada beginning June 25 in Miami. But right now, tickets are available in every city and at every price.

What’s happening? Over saturation. Jay Z played a year long tour with Justin Timberlake, for an album– “Magna Carta Holy Grail”– that was given away for free by Samsung. Beyonce already toured. She just finished the worldwide “Mrs. Carter” tour in March 2014. It took in over $229 million.

Even with her “Visual” album scoring a big first month last December, Beyonce just hasn’t had a breakout single like “Single Ladies” or “Crazy in Love.” The album is off the top 200 for a while now. Jay Z’s is long gone.

Maybe this would have worked at smaller venues.

And the gossip? With no denials, but lots of “unnamed sources,” my guess it’s mostly made up to keep some interest in the couple while they’re on tour. Just wait for some “staged” episodes to lure in passive ticketholders.”

Is the world getting tired of hip-hop’s power couple? Or can we not dish out the cash just yet?

    If you check the shows across the country most of the tickets are from second parties. .

    “had a breakout single like “Single Ladies” or “Crazy in Love.” The album is off the top 200 for a while now.”

    SO “Drunk in Love” was not a real hit…people lets just slow down on the hate I know it’s getting hot outside but damn

  • too much jay and b everywhere. over saturation for sure.

  • Ipullcards

    Ppl just don’t care that much. If it were jay and state property, maybe at this time the fans would be more interested in something roc nation.. But nah idc about these 2 anymore. Hiphop use to be if u were pass 30 and sounding lame not starting trends than u were over the hill.. It’s time hov do some reunion sh1t and step aside

      UH….If we are using the MetLife Stadium as an example, they capacity for that night is over 50,000. So they’ve already sold 40,000 and that is for the SECOND night at the same place. Therefore they’ve sold about 80,000 tickets. Is that really so bad?

      • Ipullcards

        Only ppl like you still buy their tickets. Ppl like me feel off that bandwagon long ago

      • !!

        Okay cool.

      • 5% Hov

        Nigga….

    Things to consider:

    -The MetLife Stadium has 2 dates. They’ve already sold over 80,000 for those two dates alone.

    -They have about half their dates sold out. And these are stadiums so they have massive attendance (an average of about 53,000 seats)

    -No one would be saying the tickets moved slowly if they sold out an arena tour, and yet they are selling enough to fill an arena 3x over for each date.

    So yes, there are 11,000 tickets left at that date. But no that does not indicate some sort of problem when you’re selling 40,000+ tickets each date.

    • dralban

      sold out lolololol?????? I guess GIVEN AWAY TICKETS OR SOLD SUPER CHEAP LOL

      • !!

        Have you actually looked into this or are you just making an assumption? From what I’ve seen about 9/19 dates are sold out.

    What happens is Tickets are alll sold out… but scalpers bought the up and no be trying sell them on at stupid prices…

  • i’mreloaded!

    I think everyone has had enough of them for a while now. Every other song on the damn radio is one of theirs. I love lookin at Beyoncé and all, but give us a break for a minute.

  • The economy is messed up!

    Only people with disposable income & a desire to spend it on Jay & Bey, are the people with “E” $$$ ON THIS SITE…..but you need REAL $$$ to buy tickets.

    • johnblacksad

      Tickets go on sale tomorrow for Stade de France… general pop. that is…
      me of course, I played it safe and bought mine through the American Express pre-sale…

      • No doubt!
        It’s gonna be a packed house…just not packed with street dudes.

  • WeakSauce

    When this tour was announced, I had said these are just a couple hungry Hyenas trying to suck every penny out off their fans with their ridiculous prices! I’m glad they are not selling. Plus I’m sure people are tired of these two. I know I am, I have been.

  • GMF357

    The market is wack….The concert is set up for couples and no man with sense will pay for himself and his chick to only really wanna watch Jay’s part of the concert. Plus, the vibe would b corny…I don’t wanna hear “Cough up a lung where Im from Marcy Son, aint nuttin nice” and then Whatever the hell beyonce talks about

  • TheOnlyCoop

    This is the same story that was put out about Ye’s tour last year.
