The New York Post’s Page Six is reporting that Rihanna’s management is urging the singer to cancel a string of US dates on her upcoming tour due to low ticket sales.
A source tells the publications “It has been a big disappointment. The ticket sales in big U.S. 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.”
Apparently Boston has only sold around 3,700 tickets so far, and promoters are urging local radio stations to do giveaways.
To put things into perspective, Rihanna reportedly needs to sell about 15,000 tickets per night to break even on event costs.
She was forced to cancel a few dates on her last tour for the same reason.
