Hi all,

According to this article, the last night of the tour only sold 30% of the available tickets.

Is this true? Can anyone tell me? That just seems really low for a final night...

It also said there were a couple of other concerts in the area, including Adam Lambert's, so that would probably account for many of the empty seats. Other factors were that it was the last night of the tour and most everyone already knew what to expect, plus the stigma of the show's numerous "problems" this season, not to mention plain old apathy.

I won two tickets to the Dallas show but something came up and I couldn't make the 4 hour drive from Louisiana, so I sold them on Craigslist for $40...each! They were great seats that were 8 rows back to the left of the stage. I asked both people to try to get me some pictures or an autograph from Siobhan or something and both of them came through for me. Since that was the side where Sio did her two group songs and most of her set, they sent me some amazing pictures and video footage of Siobhan. They weren't able to get her autograph though.....

Does that count give away tickets?

The show I went to couldn't of been more than 50-60% capacity either.

Crystal's hometown show was the Toledo show, not Indy...



That's so sad crying.gif I thought it was a really good show. I attended the last show last season and it was sold out.

Id like to see the official box office numbers and seating capacity before I assume this guys eyeball estimate of 30%. They did 39% in Dallas, but it was an arena with a seating capacity of 15000, they had 6200 people there- which is not terrible.

I have been to the tour every year since season 1 EXCEPT for this year. The talent is getting worse and worse and these shows have become so boring and it's so easy to expect what you will see. I miss the way the tour was in seasons 1-3.
