Report: Rihanna’s US Tour In Turmoil; Forced To Cancel Dates

rihanna tour12 Report: Rihannas US Tour In Turmoil; Forced To Cancel Dates

While UK fans can’t seem to get enough of her, new reports reveal Rihanna is having difficulty luring US concert-goers to the Stateside leg of her ‘Loud Tour’.

So bad is the situation said to be that the model is apparently preparing to scrap dates. Deja vu, anyone?

Full story below…

Via New York Post / Sandra Rose:

Rihanna is having as tough a time selling concert tickets as she did last year. After her 2010 “Last Girl on Earth” tour hit problems with cancellations in Phoenix, Dallas, Atlanta, Denver and Indianapolis because of low ticket sales, it seems the pop princess still can’t pack an arena, even with new management from Jay-Z’s Roc Nation.

Sources say after poor US concert pre-sales last month, Rihanna has been advised by her day-to-day manager, Jay Brown, to cancel domestic dates on her “Loud” tour.

“It has been a big disappointment,” our source said. “The ticket sales in big US 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.”

Rihanna is scheduled to perform at T.D. Garden arena in Boston on July 24 with Cee Lo Green. Only 3,700 tickets have been sold, and sources on the tour say she needs to sell at least 15,000 to break even. They expect more than a half-million dollars in losses from the Boston concert alone.

Rihanna split from her first manager, Marc Jordan, who launched her career, over a disagreement after her 2010 tour. A rep for Jordan declined to comment.

Her new manager, Brown, who is part of Roc Nation, is preparing to make changes, sources say. The tour starts in June 4 in Baltimore and heads to Canada and then around the US before moving to England in August.

But an insider said, “She should’ve been doing theaters and smaller venues. She’s not ready to headline an arena tour.”

Sources say while the ticket sales are sluggish, Rihanna is demanding all of the bells and whistles to make it a blow-out show. “It’s the normal diva requests,” an insider said, “which is tolerated, when you make money.”
Reps for Rihanna and Roc Nation declined to comment.

But, like really though; does this actually surprise anyone? I mean if there’s any doubt about Ms. Fenty’s vocal ability, there damn sure isn’t about her live performing. She moves with all the energy of a corpse. Something the traditionally harsher US market clearly have no interest in seeing.

Still, with over 7 dates sold out at London’s O2 alone, and solid ticket sales throughout Europe (where the currency is stronger than the dollar), the trek isn’t the disaster her harshest critics will inevitably condem it to be. It just means the US aren’t willing to waste their money on stiff routines and construction-noise vocals. Can’t say I blame them.

Your thoughts?

    It is interesting to see the difference in American reception vs. European/Australian/Canadian reception. Rihanna has no problem filling large venues…as long as it’s not in the US. I’m an American myself, and while I don’t speak for the entire US population, I will say that I personally would not come out of pocket to see her perform live. She has great songs and cool videos, but as a live performer she leaves a lot to be desired, IMO.

    Again, like I said, this doesn’t seem to be the opinion of those living in non-US territories. Very interesting indeed. I’m not saying that Europeans/Australians/Canadians have bad taste in performers, but us Americans are strapped for cash and won’t pay hard earned dough to see just anybody.

    Please note that I submitted a sound opinion about Rihanna’s alleged situation without any mention or comparison to other artists. I really don’t have anything against RiRi.

    so just because CB is having a negative press kind of day, TGJ just happened to try to put a damper on rihanna. I don’t believe this story. Plus who is this so called source. You guys keep quoting. Rihanna is doing fine, and the millions she made last year with her very successful tour is proof enough. When the numbers for this tour comes in you all will be eating crow and looking foolish.

So you didn’t help her become the success that she is or help sell millions of loud or rated r, so your opinion of her is not really needed. Just another hater on another day. What’s new.

    I’m still waiting for Ticketmaster/Live Nation to remedy a HUGE error when I went to buy tickets. I tried to get the top level floor tickets and it kept defaulting to the super expensive VIP package prices. This happened for several days and then it said only tier seats were available. I love me some Rihanna but there’s only maybe two singers I would go all out for like that. Anyway. Hopefully her San Jose show isn’t one to be cancelled. I still need my tickets! :)

Rihanna never has successful tours so her stans need to stop it with that! She isn’t even worth 15 million dollars!

    Meanwhile she’s still making more money than Chris ever would and everyone that’s on here wishing her failure. Like the article said the euro is stronger than the dollar so she’ll be alright for some time, because the U.K. supports their acts for a long time. And let me just say this is partial the reason I don’t come to blogs. Because you get pretend journalist who log on and write what ever comes through their head and everyone takes it as gospel. Come on people! Didn’t you learn in school to never believe in a non-credible source that does not provide a source or proof to their story? For all we know Chris Brown’s people could have paid this site to put up this story like they paid this site to advertise his album on their layout.

    Yall really ridin’ on Chris Brown’s (cough cough- fill in the blank)… As I’ve said before Sam and Trent I get yall have a business to run and therefore creating controversy equals attention for your website but this is not the way to move about it. When Perez Hilton stopped being so rude and nasty to the celebrities he disliked (but in actuality was a major fan for) he gained even more popularity and credibility. You don’t need to use these tacky tactics to gain popularity anymore… you’re already there.

    I was a fan of Chris Brown’s for a long time and I would like to become his fan once more, but Chris has not owned up to his problems. He reminds me of how my little brother used to be, blaming others for the mistakes he made. I get that Chris Brown is still a kid, but he needs to mature himself and accept that this is most likely a problem that will never leave him. Had Chris Brown kept his composure and answered the questions he was being asked to the best of his ability, he would of been fine during and after the interview.

    People like me want Chris Brown to succeed, but Chris always builds your hopes up for him and then does or says something ignorant. Chris constantly contradicts himself time and time again. I really am pulling for him, but I don’t think Chis will get to the place he wants or needs to be if he doesn’t… man up.

    The fact of the matter is what he did was wrong and the world will never forget that. Chris is a public figure, he knew what the consequences were for his actions, as well as for being a celebrity. Chris Brown’s only option from here is to accept what he did was wrong, live his life to the best of his ability, and go from there.

    A real american singer need a strong american fanbase in the US if he/she seeks for longevity.UK fans turn their back all the time for the new it girl in the pop scene.

    Rihanna just proves that she doesnt have a strong fanbase at all

    Rihanna is a WACK live peformer, the reason Beyonce ,Chris Brown and the rest sellout is cuz they GIVE YOU A SHOW. something to WATCH! rihanna is not a peformer thats why shes underselling.
    She has the nerve to say she wants to work on her pefromance skills. rihanna u had YEARS to train. and ur still at the same level.
    BlackBall ciara all u like but she is no.2 FEMALE WISE when it comes to performing.
    Beyonce no.1 Ciara no.2 the onli reason ciara is no.2 is cuz her vocals arent as strong.
    but she can sing well and her stage presence,dance moves make up for her beautiful ,soft voice.
    Rihanna u dont get a pass. instead of looking cute in vogue TRAIN URSELF stagewise

    I think the problem is (apart from the lack of real entertainment) Is that Rihanna just came off touring with Rated R and had been on every show and magazine going, its called over exposure.

    Who wants to pay bucks to see Rihana again when you just saw her, or pay to see what you’ve see on T.V

    She needs to take a break and build up some anticipation, we are in hard economic times.

    Everyone keeps talking about how this isn’t true…………………..this is VERY TRUE! If they’re talking about this on Fox 5 news then it’s official. I don’t feel bad for her either…….she really took a turn for the worst. I mean I know she wanted to let her hair down when she got a little older but I mean DAM she turned her whole style around. She got on this Good Girl Gone Bad s*** & now she’s off the hook. I really miss the sweet innocent Pon De Replay Rhianna! Lawd knows her first CD Music of the Sun was her best album IMO all around especially the vocals. She really needs to work on Stage Presence!

    And yet she just added another show in the UK and she’s fine elsewhere.

    Funny on the same day as Chris’ latest b**** fit and album release.

    If needed, she could cancel the US portion and be fine. The only issue would he moving up the European leg. I’m sure she’s having some trouble in the US but the entire thing is ridiculous.

    Btw, between Adele, Amy, and Florence, the UK is absolutely raping it and artist are selling more there than in the US now.

    @Sam -

    She was just FORCED to do a 2-for-1 sale for the larger venues during her latest Australian tour.

    And “re: Euro/European currency being worth more than U.S.” Did you see what the markets did just after the Japanese disaster? They all ran to the U.S. dollar/Treasury.
    The Irish electorate decided against the latest austerity measures. Long-story short – The PIGS are still dragging down the Euro. But let’s see what “inflation weary”Jean-Claude Trichet has in store for the Euro. Let us see what plains Mervyn KIng has for the Pound!

    Sam, remember, (deficits withstanding) if you take away the “training wheels” too soon, you risk a nasty fall. One that may take decades to recover from!

    The Commodity Currencies are STILL the way to go! This why I had wanted Breezy to go to S. African and AGAIN Brazil; and too, to Australia!

    (Funny thing, those riots in The U.K. didn’t amount to much, now did they?)

    I think you are right about her not having that strong of a fan base over here, but only insofar as she can’t tour. People buy her songs because they are great quality, catchy and she makes generally decent videos. But, maybe your right….you can’t exactly call those “fans”.

    @ Dion-Ish
    Cool, she’s doing great in the U.K. but the post is about America. And I just don’t think the majority of American’s are buying her as a good performer–as evidenced by the cancellations. Overall, I think she’s a very specific kind of star. People are interested in her fashion/style, personal life & songs. Not so much her performances, at least in the U.S.

    I don’t really forsee this as true.
    And if it is, it’s only because she just got done with a tour and they haven’t promoted this one, so no one knows about it.
    She has hardly done any promo in the U.S. in months (regarding the album/singles etc.) so I’ m not surprised. She has been mostly overseas.

    I’m sure it will be fine, and there haven’t been any cancellations yet.

    Btw. there are absolutely no identifiable sources for this information, including this post or the New York Post article.

    Like it said, if it is true, it will easily be turned around this time by a little promo. The attitude towards this era is much different than The Rated R era.

    Haters are always gonna hate. That’s just the way it is. She’ll keep doing her thing and being successful and the negativity is always gonna come. She don’t care, we’re talking about her. That means she’s doing something right…

    This isn’t a B.S story. Why are rihanna stans so pressed? I mean she had to cancel the last tours here. I swear I only believe Loud is Platinum due to Shipments and not sales. This here is further proof to my theory. I like rihanna because she is fresh her songs are catchy. however in order to do arena tours you have to bring it when you’re performing wether it’s on the jay leno show or just a promotional appearence. The truth of the matter is she never brings it live. After 6 years you can’t make anymore excuses for her. It is what it is.

    She cannot sell out big arenas in the US. She should have just done theaters and smaller venues. Also she should be touring with somebody of similar or equal popularity.

    Well no surprise there, we already know how legendary she is for her performance skills *sarcasm*.

    @ DRB:

    Yeah, if she were a UK/Europe based artist, this would be no big deal, but she’s not. Six years and five successful albums later, she can’t sell out her own tour in what is supposed to be her home base. That is TERRIBLE for a mainstream pop star.

    Also remember that here is WAY bigger than the UK, so of course by contrast she can more easily sell out venues over there. Although I wonder what the hell do they see in her live performances, the same country that is churning out artists who are kicking our asses in terms of talent.

    Well you can’t really say home based as she is from Barbados not the US.
    So for a Bajan she is doing great.

    But she needs to be a ticket seller everywhere if she wants to be compared to Brit, Beyonce and Christina.

    Isn’t this a shame the goats stay making up excuses just face the fact that Rih ain’t as big of an artist as you think she is! An artist is someone that can bring it in and out of the studio! People don’t want to pay to see a girl dressed in next to nothing tryna “entertain” on stage! She can’t sing live, she can’t dance and she has NO stage presence this just leaves me wondering why people in the UK are ok with settling for such lack of talent? I find it quiet amusing! But hey its there money to waste

    I must say that I am a Rihanna fan and when I saw she was coming to my state (North Carolina) I definitely got tickets. However, tickets were outrageously expensive considering she is still a novice act. The cheapest tickets were 75 dollars I believe. She needs to get real!

    I know this looks bad, but rihanna is an international artist. I will admit see should have done smaller venues in the US, and arenas everywhere else. Or get a better supporting act besides cee lo. The album is doing well with receiving platinum status and now she just needs to keep promoting new singles and the paper will keep rolling in. Or even better she shouldn’t even tried to do a US tour bc she did one last year.

    And wasn’t Rihanna on Twitter telling Ciara good luck with booking a stage but your her sales are low, but hey, it’s only pre-sales. The post said the arena in Boston seats 15,000 and so far 3,700 tickets have been sold and the show is on July, that’s 4 months away, she’ll probably sell more tickets by then, and does anyone know who’s sponsoring the tour because TGJ didn’t post that. Most big world arena tours like this usually have a major sponsor like Live Nation, AIG, MTV, Vh1 or BET. Wait isn’t she with Roc Nation now and didn’t Jay-Z sign a $150 million deal with Live Nation a few years ago, so why isn’t there any promotion for this tour like last time, I so hope Rihanna isn’t one of those artist who think’s just because her album sold well that ppl will go see in concert. And the reason she’s selling out venues in Europe and Australia is because her music is much bigger in those countries than in the U.S., yeah Loud has sold 1.1 million copies, but everybody here knows she can’t perform

    Maybe its because she just finished a tour? She’s only been to my city, from Canada, once and that was with Kanye and she’s coming for the first time alone and is doing okay with ticket sales. Not great like some artists but she’s doing fine. Most of my friends have gotten tickets to see her and are really excited because they enjoyed her when she came with Kanye but her tickets didn’t sell out like before. Her tickets were also cheaper compared to other concerts like Avril and Katy but I wouldn’t mind seeing her if I didn’t already buy so many tickets to other shows around the same time. Maybe that’s a reason too? A lot of artists seem to be coming to my city around the same time and if you’re like me and had to choose, Rihanna may not be the first choice. Hopefully things pick up for her but maybe other places aren’t promoting her tour? When her cd and tour dates came out there was so much promotion in my city (Can’t say for others) that she was coming that it was impossible not to have an urge to buy or see just for sake of going.

    You are one Beyonce STAN i like… Kudos to you….

    Now on this matter, i guess what ppl have been saying about touring is true. It all makes sense now though, i never really believed that Rihanna was just a singles artist, but i guess this proves it. This is why acts like Ciara, Trey Songz, Chris Brown etc. put so much emphasis on touring. They’ve all mentioned acts that are known for not being able to tour, i guess Rihanna was one of those acts they were talking about. Even with all of their own individual career ups & downs, the fact that this has happened to Rihanna speaks volumes about her, her fans & her team.

    I feel bad for her though.

    Lmaooo Rihanna is my girl but that is kinda funny. I would love to see her live someday BUT I don’t have enough $ to shell out for her live performance wise. She’s an mediorcre/inconsistent live performer and NO stans of hers can say otherwise. If she wants to be a big touring act like in UK,Europe,Canada, and Australia she better step it up and prove to the US that she is more then a Studio Voice and A singles artist.

    So, yeah, bascially the rest of America feel the same way I feel about Rihanna, they’d rather listen to her music on their iPods rather than pay a penny to see her “perform.” Good songs & fashion but TERRIBLE performance skills.

    I’m sure Rihanna stans will hold on to her, Europe ticket sales, though. That’s all they’ll have. I think this is further confirmation that she’ll NEVER be on the level of the REAL heavyweights of the game. Maybe next lifetime.

    Hey! I’m not completely back, unfortunately. The reason I haven’t been commenting as much as I’d like to on TGJ is because my computer’s fan died and it’s been shipped off to be fixed. I probably won’t get it back for another week. Of course, my phone also decided not to allow internet access, either, so I’m getting that fixed, too. So for now, I’m stuck borrowing my roommate’s computer for a bit a day. Explains my late response here; sorry about that.

    Oh, and they are! :) My relatives mostly live in Kyoto, Kobe, Hiroshima, and surrounding areas (southwest Japan), so they weren’t too badly affected by the earthquake, and not at all affected by the tsunami or nuclear disaster. Even my relatives in Tokyo and Yokohama are fine, but I still worry about all of the affected people in northern Japan, of course. Thank you for asking!

    Rihanna stans need to calm down. If GaGa, Madonna or Beyonce announced a UK tour right now they would sell out 9 shows. GaGa will bust that goat’s O2 record anyday now.

    Anyway, we all know RiRi is an intl superstar and is more paid than most of them but if she ever wants success in the US she needs to hire a new coreographer or go to a Matthew Knowles boot camp for a few months b/c her live performances are AWFUL.
