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…

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.
