While her ‘Last Girl On Earth’ tour may be in high gear in Europe, things don’t seem to be so favourable in the US for the Bajan star. A reliable source has just informed That Grape Juice that ticket sales for many of her tour dates have yet to surpass 30% capacity despite having fellow ‘it’ girl Ke$ha as her opening act. The US leg of the ‘Last Girl On Earth’ tour kicks off on July 2nd at the White River Amphitheatre in Auburn.
What exactly does this mean for Rihanna? After having 3 top 10 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 (1 of which held the top spot for 5 weeks), a platinum-shipping album and a massive promotional campaign, it’s evident that many consumers in the US don’t consider one hour of crotch rubbing a wise investment. Hopefully this will give Rihanna the cue to get the vocal training that she so desperately needs instead of wasting her time pretending to play musical instruments and changing her hairstyle every 5 minutes.
