Rumors has been bumping around the net about Jay Z and Beyoncé’s highly anticipated On The Run Tour experiencing poor ticket sales as its set to kick off next Wednesday in Miami.
According to Billboard, a source close to Live Nation-produced tour says that, as of June 17, the tour has racked up about $86 million in ticket sales and is on a pace to gross close to $100 million from just 19 shows. Attendance is on a pace to top 850,000 tickets sold, and a Live Nation rep confirmed to Billboard last night that the tour is indeed nearing that threshold. That averages to a nightly take of $5.2 million with an average attendance of nearly 45,000 per show.
Numerous shows are sold out, and Live Nation cites “unprecedented” VIP and platinum ticket sales.
These are huge numbers and would make “On The Run” one of the most successful tours of the year. Click here for dates and remaining ticket information while supplies last.
