Nelly Furtado Announces ‘The Spirit Indestructible Tour’

Published: Tuesday 13th Nov 2012 by Sam

While the industry collectively gasped at the first week sales of Nelly Furtado‘s latest album ‘The Spirit Indestructible’, the singer is not letting the fact she sold just 6000 copies halt her hustle.

For, in the spirit of pressing on, the 33 year old has announced that she is embarking on a tour in support of the album in January.

Details after the jump…

As per Furtado’s official website, the Canadian songbird will set sail on ‘The Spirit Indestructible Tour’ in home territory. Peep the dates below…

January 8th        Save On Foods Memorial Centre, Victoria

January 9th        Orpheum Theatre, Vancouver

January 12th      Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium, Calgary

January 14th      Esplanade Arts and Heritage Centre, Medicine Hat

January 15th      Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium, Edmonton

*********

Affordable in some respects (ticket prices start at $45), the trek does raise eyebrows in that front-section tickets cost $100 a seat. Common logic immediately begs the question: “if essentially no one bought your $10 album, why would they spend $100 on seats to your small-venue tour?”

Still, we have buckets of love for Nelly’s talent and are keen to see her establish at least one successful “face” to this project – the most plausible being the route she’s going down now – touring. Thereafter, once re-grouped, she and her team can put the wheels in motion to ensure she delivers an album worthy of the strong push ‘TSI’ got. And not six years from now either.

Your thoughts?

  5. ,.jbjkcgn November 13, 2012

    she’s still trying? poor thing. bless her.
    what she needs to do is take a minute, gather thoughts, get back in the studio and pretend spirit unfloppable didnt happen

    this is dumb… come on its her native Canada i am sure she will be fine.. and honestly i haven’t bought the album but its actually a lot better than most of the fluff out there!

  7. Letruth November 13, 2012

    She seriously took too long of a break that people lost interest in her. hope her next album does better.

    You don’t need a #1 album to sell out tour seats, just ask Rhianna, Madonna, Janet, etc.

    • Erickane November 14, 2012

      Madonna’s MDNA debuted at #1 in March 🙂

  10. Talk That S***! November 13, 2012

  11. vanny November 13, 2012

  15. DOSSOME November 14, 2012

    A flop album don’t mean a flop tour….thats the same logic behind fact nobody buys madonna’s MDNA for $2 dollars and yet buying her $300 dollar tickets

  16. OnSomeRealShit! November 14, 2012

    You don’t only perform songs from a newly released album while on tour silly people. You perform hits as well, and nelly has enough of those to cover a few shows. Give her a break!

  17. credits November 14, 2012

    yea, i only expected to see Canadian cities on this list, she’s coming to mine, if the price is right….maybe i’ll go.
