Report Claims Rihanna's "LOUD" Tour Is NOT A Bust, Rih Readies For Academy of Country Music Awards!

​ ​ ​ ​

In response to reports that Rihanna's LOUD tour has poor ticket sales, one industry insider has posted some facts (given to him by Live Nation) that dispute reports of low ticket sales.  Find out what the powers that be are saying about Rihanna and her tour inside.  Plus--chick is readying for a country-collabo at this year's Academy of Country Music Awards next month...

 

Acclaimed music analyst and blogger Bob Lefsetz recently posted infomation he obtained from Live Nation chairman Irving Azoff about Rihanna's worldwide tickets sales.  After Bob published his findings, Roc Nation co-signed on the report saying Rihanna's tour is not the disaster The New York Post reported it to be earlier this week.

So here are the facts according to Bob/Irving/Roc Nation:

1. There are 56 sold out Rihanna dates in Europe.  

2. 64% of tickets for Rihanna’s domestic shows have already been sold. And they’re selling at the rate of 700 a day.

3. Rihanna’s Boston show is four months out. Projections say that 90% of the seats will be sold by showtime.  Also, the Post story said Rihanna needed to sale 15,000 tickets to break even, but Bob reports only 13,500 seats are available for sale.  And so far, Rihanna had sold 5,800 tickets for Boston, not the reported 3,700 tickets.   

 

And news just broke this afternoon that Rihanna's going country!  At least for one night.  Rih is set to perform a collabo of her new song, ‘California King Bed,’ with Sugarland's Jennifer Nettles.  It'll be the pop singer's first appearance at the ACMs, and it'll be an interesting one at that I'm sure.

The ACMs are set to air live from Las Vegas on April 3rd at 8 PM ET on CBS.

So does this prove that Rih Rih's still WINNING?

someone is lyingggggggggg...

someone is lyingggggggggg... check ticketmaster, you can still purchase floor seats to most of her shows in the U.S. and they've been on sale for almost 2 months. Now correct me if i'm wrong, but that doesn't sound like its 65% sold out.

For those who criticize

For those who criticize Rihanna saying she can't sing, you are entitled to your opinion. But don't criticize those of us who think she can. Everyone has their own unique style. And she definitely has hers. She is the entire package, and not matter what, you can't take that away from her. So hate on. She's has crossover appeal which will make her even richer. Gone Rih!

You put a lot of thought into

You put a lot of thought into your comment but unfortunatley it didn't make much sense. No matter what you buy in life someone else is going to make a profit. I am a fan of many different artist and if they make a product that I like and can use, I will purchase it. Also, just because one can afford to purchase items and you can't don't hate; one day you might be successful too. I'm sure at some point in your life you purchased an artist CD or downloaded a song....#enoughsaidgetalife#

I HATE when people say

I HATE when people say "BLACKE PEOPLE ARE HATIN" No! People are BEING honest she isn't a SINGER Okay Let's Get That str8!!! Chrisette Michele Marsha Ambrosius Melanie Fiona Monica Keyshia Cole & many others. Are WAYY BETTER SINGERS!!!...But RECORD COMPANIES focus on artists like RIHANNA because they dress HALF NAKED and they are looked as BRANDS instead of REAL MUSICIANS!!! RIHANNA is commercial that's what people need to understand she is NOT a singer she is NOT a performer she is NOT a songwriter she lacks a lot of skills but she is a BRAND that's all!!!

No, FANS focus on the women that are dressed half naked. There's a reason even Beyonce has to walk around butter ball naked...it's so she doesn't get shuffled to the back like Monica, Marsha and Melanie.

@ TruthBeTold I agree w/ 100% the people who spend MONEY on making this GIRL richer AND richer ARE DELUSIONAL!!!...I mean think about it would RIHANNA give you a $5 if u asked on TWITTER?? Probably NOT. I think some people put too much ENERGY into these RICH POP STARS cuz they just want to get RICHER and live in their MANSIONS while, FANS scream & cry for them but fans would have to be the DUMBEST people they support COMMERCIAL CRAP ARTISTS but when it's REAL TALENT they PAY no ATTENTION Hmm....smh.

Truth of the matter is for

Truth of the matter is for those of you who can't read, the reports have been saying she might have to cancel her US part of the tour (which is only like 10 cities), but overseas she is SELLING OUT!!!! so what that means is that she is still making money off her tour, just not here. In America we support the wrong damn things. If u don't like her music fine, but why ridicule her and a;ways point the "bad" things? No one ever says good job on the movie role, good job on the cover of the mag, or covergirl spot. The same people who don't like her are probably the same ones wearing their hair like her. @ the end of the day she is still a 23 yr old female millionaire who made it on her own without a group or band to back her, a sex tape, reality show whore, or someones baby momma or mistress.

I wouldnt go see this no non dancing...non singing...no talent having, anything for attention wanting, goat for 5 dollars! She is a lame, and America is over her, hence her lackluster ticket sales. N yo, it may not be becuz she sucks, which she does, but because she stupidly over charges for tickets like she's worth that much....this bitch is worth 20 dollars on her best day. Rihanna's so called "reign" is over. What would she be with out Jay-Z.....she will fade into the background once again when Beyonce is done exploring the world and being a boss classy queen that she is... Rihanna is done!!! She has not authenticiy, no relatable personality....she used her ass getting beat to promote Rated R....had the gaul to challenge Minister Farakhann for calling music what it is! SWINE MUSIC! Rihanna has the biggest fucking forehead and the smallest brain...I've NEVER heard her make an intelligent statement....only lil smart ass remarks and quips, like a little ass girls... Rihanna has fucked Matt Kemp, who also beat up his previous girl friend...now she's getting plowed by an Irish dude, Colin Ferrel or whatever the fuck his name is...what a whore, and a desperate whore at that...u think he'd show up to the oscar with her black ass....hell no! He's gonna fuck her, nut on her big ass ronald mcdonald wig if hasnt fallen off by then, and be out....if she doesnt provoke him to beat her ass first.... Rihanna went platinum off whites too please believe, and she knows it, and has publicly talked shit about the black race calling us haters as if its the entire race....fuck Rihanna, and fuck her fans

The real question is what

The real question is what would beyawnce be without jay z? if you recall, b4 Jay z came into her life she was out of shape but always wore stomach reveling shirts, hari was always ugly, no one liked her songs, and she was doing dumb movie roles like in Austin Powers. So if you wanna be real then be real with everything. W/out Jay Z she would b just like the other members of her group.

SMH at some you. This chick could sell out all her US dates and ya'll would still have some negative shit to say. It's proven fact that due to the economic downturn people wait till the last minute to buy tickets. Talk all that shit when we're a few days away from the first show and she still hasn't sold out. THEN ya'll can talk shit. It's ok though. Black folks aren't the ones buying her music so who gives a fuck what y'all think.

exactly, its funny that when there is evidence to support the false report people fail to acknowledge it, because they so want rihanna to do bad and fail. Why is that? why is rihanna's success such a problem for some of you people. IF you don't support her fine, but to be going in on her like some of you do lead me to believe that there is some other thing going on here. Somebody is trying to sabotage her career and bring her down. I truly believe its the Chris brown fans. They don't want to see her do well because they blame her for his problems.
