The latest word out of Beyonce's camp is good: Bey and Jay Z's much-hyped "On the Run" tour grossed over $100 million. The North American leg of the tour ended in San Francisco Wednesday night. There are 2 more shows in Paris on Sept. 12 and 13. Then Beyonce will take aging rapper Jay Z home to NY for some much needed rest. Word is Beyonce limited the tour to 17 cities because her aging husband doesn't have the stamina for a longer tour.
Last night, singer Beyonce and her rapper husband Jay Z opened their much-hyped 'On the Run' Tour at Sun Life Stadium in Miami.
Concert goers took to social media to complain bitterly about the 3-hour traffic jam outside the stadium. Some fans wondered aloud why they bothered to shell out $300 for tickets to the concert.
Once the Beyhive faithful made it inside the stadium, the traffic complaints gave way to complaints about Beyonce's tardiness, her bridal attire, and how empty the stadium was.
..their national 'On The Run' Tour is not suffering from dismal ticket sales. According to Billboard magazine (which can easily be influenced by the glare of a star's spotlight), the On The Run Tour is selling well.
But numerous national media outlets are detailing Beyonce and Jay Z's struggles to sell tickets to their upcoming co-headline tour. Many believe the brutal beating Jay Z suffered at the hands of his sister-in-law, Solange Knowles, has destroyed his street cred.
My first clue that things may not be going well for Beyonce and Jay Z's much ballyhooed stadium tour came when a well-known promoter text me to ask if I wanted floor tickets for the Miami show.
The tour is in trouble if they're willing to give away tickets just to get bodies in the seats. Maybe a stadium tour was a little too ambitious for Beyonce and Jay Z? After all, they aren't Michael Jackson. Bey and Jay should've listened to the promoter's who told them to perform at small, intimate venues.
When Beyonce and Jay Z announced their joint 'On The Run' Tour earlier this month, ticket sales soared. But that was before a shocking hotel surveillance video gave the public insight into the Knowles-Carter clan's darkest secret -- that Jay Z was a victim of elder abuse at the hands of his sister-in-law Solange Knowles and, possibly, Beyonce.
