Live Nation Chairman Hails Beyonce’s Blockbuster Stadium Sell-Outs

Published: Monday 22nd Feb 2016 by Sam

How many crowns can Beyonce fit on at once?

Queen of the charts. Queen of the stage. And now Queen of the stadium.

The superstar’s ‘Formation World Tour’ is blowing up box offices across the globe – so much so that multiple dates have been added to the stadium-only jaunt.

Naturally, the early success of the trek has plastered a grin on the face of sponsor Live Nation.

Speaking to Billboard, the company’s chairman of Global Touring Arthur Fogel had much to say about the hottest ticket of the summer.

More below…

For Fogel, ‘Formation’s sales (now that all of America and half of European dates are on sale) are “beyond fantastic.”

A perusal of this helps highlight why:

Formation has already sold out two New York shows (June 7-8 at Citi Field), two London show (July 203 at Wembley Stadium), and just added a second Chicago night (May 27-28 at Soldier Field). Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Boston, San Diego, Miami, Baltimore, Atlanta, Houston, and Santa Clara, Calif., are all clean, and others are headed that way.

Even Nashville’s Nissan Stadium date May 5, which went on sale to the general public this morning amid the local police union’s call for a boycott due to a perceived anti-police message in Beyonce’s performance at Super Bowl 50, is strong out of the box, with sales standing at over 33,000 for a gross of $4 million.

Overall, the 39-date tour, which begins April 27 at Marlins Field in Miami, has already taken in over $100 million in ticket sales, with Beyonce inevitably headed toward a sold-out run and one of the hottest tours of 2016. [Source]

To put this into context, Taylor Swift bested all touring talent last year when her ‘1989’ trek brought in a whopping $250 million gross and 2.3 million attendance to 83 shows. Yet, she crucially did not play stadiums exclusively. Thus rendering Bey’s trek likely to top this.

In setting sail on the extravaganza, the 34-year-old joins an elite list of acts hitting the stadium trail this year  – with comrades Coldplay and Rolling Stones serving as the only others.

More power to her!

    She looks so powerful in that picture. I wish I could go to a show from her tour, but tickets are way too expensive and people are already on waitinglists just to be notified of when more tickets are available. I just know MJ is so proud of her. He’s probably smiling down from heaven crying tears of joy after that Superbowl performance and how people having been showing up for her in the midst of the media attacking her endlessly.

    • Fatusankoh February 22, 2016

      Omg I was thinking the same thing well said thanks

      • ???Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans??? February 22, 2016

        You’re welcome, hun! MJ would’ve given her, Ciara and Rih his blessing, just like he did Usher, if he were still alive.

    • FORMATION IS RHYTHM NATION ’16 (Lana Del Fan) February 22, 2016

      It’s messed up that people buy just to resell. I bought my ticket for $209, but when I looked for better tickets (I’ll be damned if I pay over a G for on stage tickets. I don’t give a damn who it is) tickets for seats near minewere $500+ it should be illegal.

      • ???Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans??? February 22, 2016

        Where are your seats located? I hope you’re near her little catwalk stage. Those tickets must’ve sold out quickly around that area.

      • FORMATION IS RHYTHM NATION ’16 (Lana Del Fan) February 22, 2016

        Section 126 At Citi Field. Not the best, but at least I’m there.

  2. HailBeysus February 22, 2016

    YAAASSS!!! ALL HAIL THE QUEEN!! That $300 million tour is inevitable at this point! Yaaaasss!!!

    • ???Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans??? February 22, 2016

      $300 million? Let’s not try her today, sis. It’ll be $500 million when everything’s said and done. She giving these pop girls something to work towards beating her touring record. Sorry, Madge, but Bey got this one.

      • Don February 23, 2016

    • ???Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans??? February 22, 2016

      I don’t know about you, but when I saw that the dance spot was named “The Real Jerk” I kii’d myself to the floor! I love jerk chicken and I’m sure she has plenty of Jamaican friends. Good for her doing them right!

      • ju dont eben know February 22, 2016

        lol i had to take a second glance at that part. Killed me haha ..The video was absolute SLAYAGE!! I love how she showed the rawness of my culture.

      • ???Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans??? February 22, 2016

        Yep! Lol! Drake’s peen print shows in the video too. I wasn’t ready, to be honest, but you know how he loves to wear sweatpants. I heard it was short and fat, so that’s good for him, I guess.

    • You tried February 22, 2016

      ????coming to a post where they are talking about big money MILLIONS of dollars and breaking Huge records as an artist and u bring up some whack mediocre video of a desperate “pop” artist that is desperately trying to build any kind of momentum for her floppage by popping her ass and showing her n****** to everyone that watches! Bye ?? u kids don’t get it

      • ???Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans??? February 22, 2016

        She’s still playing at 25+ stadiums this by year, so……you tried and failed. Enjoy the remainder of the day.

    • bash February 23, 2016

      Kinda like babyboy video… Just not as good… #shade

  4. The-Engineer February 22, 2016

    Taylor Swift is a superstar in america but beyond those borders she’s relatively a nobody. Beyonce on the other hand is a global superstar

    • HailBeysus February 22, 2016

      Rihanna just surpassed mutherfvcking Michael Jackson in number of hits! Rihanna’s name is etched in stone in the history books forever. Beyonce could perform a concert on the moon, and still wouldn’t take away anything from Rihanna.

      • Cinnamon Girl February 22, 2016

        Rihanna is a voodoo queen. She owes her success to the occult

      • ju dont eben know February 22, 2016

      • You tried February 23, 2016

        @iSpeakTruthNoFallacy
        That’s what’s wrong with kids like you! Beyoncé has the resources to get drunk show her n****** at events while big time writers and producers go in and make a mediocre song with no substance that is catchy that can appeal to radio and go “Streaming” #1 on the “New Billboard” but bey is Anti-With the shits Anti-Mediocre Anti-NoSubstance and definitely ANTI-BeingBroke popularity, Rihanna can kind of have that even though Beyonces name alone has more power than TWO Rihanna’s but Rihanna is a HYPE artist ! Her sink would definitely ship without the HYPE! Even Beyoncés name is involved with Rihanna’s hype since the beginning she’s her mother! Have a seat

  6. Surprise..(DEC 2013) February 22, 2016

    YES!!!!!!!!!!!! IF SHE WANTS TO, SHE CAN EASILY PASS STICKY AND SOUR GRAPE TOUR BY MADONNA. She is selling out these stadiums without an album..imagine the demand after the album is released eventually….THANK GOD SHE DID NOT DOWNGRADE HERSELF FROM 70K STADIUM VENUES TO 17K ARENAS, HER FANS ACTUALLY BOUGHT THOSE TICKETS.

  15. iSpeakTruthNoFallacy February 22, 2016

    I would LOVE to see Beyonce top Taylor’s touring record as Beyonce is THE performer of our generation. I’m just happy to see our black queens do what they do best. Rihanna making records on the charts and Beyonce making touring records.

    • Surprise..(DEC 2013) February 22, 2016

      You have officially taken Blue’s position as the coolest member of the NAZI!!! Even tho we can be a little salty towards her faves..LOL, u always give credit where it’s due and link it to BLCAK GIRL POWER…..NICE!! Now teach that to LOOSEBOOTY and teach how not to seethe like a gay version of DONALD TRUMP..I.E DONALD TRUMP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy February 22, 2016

        Thank you I appreciate it. I’m just honest and speak my mind. I feel that all of the black female artists don’t receive the proper recognition in their achievements compared to their VH1-E News counterparts as they are far more talented overall (even Ciara). As I do shade Beyonce to be funny and Rihanna is my fave, I must admit Bey’s greatness. Her success from DC all the way to self-titled is nothing short of iconic, and every artist dreams of having a sliver of her success. Remember the hype of Gaga and look at her now. As black people of the hip-hop generation, we have cultivated the greatest musical revolution in the history of America, and I will always support that.

    • RICHIE_RICH February 22, 2016

      Yes I’m happy for the both of them!!!!! Slay BLACK QUEENS

Oh and keep comparing me to someone sho debuted years after me and bring my accolades down to her level. Don’t compare me to the my girl group sisters who ventured off. Don’t compare me to Mariah, Mike and them. Oh and only female not make tours! Get out of here. ??? girl get your single bracket up.

  18. DIAbetic unbotherdd February 22, 2016

    I think bey should DOUBLE UP & actually PROMOTE This tour with teasers & maybe high profile interviews & more buzz singles. This could gross over $400 mill easily, this is her chance to beat Madonnas record.*waits for livenation to report on Anti… 3 months and still nothing*

  19. ???Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans??? February 22, 2016

    If she does 80 shows, it’s over for everyone else! If she even allows herself to get to 100, people will be pressed for eternity. I see her grossing $500 million with a minimum of 80 shows. I’m here for her breaking records, to be honest. Nothing like a powerful and unbothered black woman to get people mad and break records created by people stealing from black culture.

  20. Royalkev February 22, 2016

    This is why it’s just not necessary to feel threatened by other artists that people are stanning for! What’s for Bey is for Bey! … same with Adele, Taylor and Rih. That’s why I laugh when I see all the Bey’s could nevers… I’m good with what Bey brings to the table. Her career is a consistent and well-rounded one! Bey slay all day! … but if your fav does too, congrats!

      • Cinnamon Girl February 22, 2016

        Your’re joking with me right? Rihanna’s low self esteem fans have threatened folks lives over this tramp. You guys defend everything Rihanna does. She makes fun of other black women,hits her fans with microphones, makes fun of her teen fan, drinks and does drugs and you guys think that is funny. She clearly lied about being sick but you guys are still here defending her. She takes her fans for granted because she knows that you guys are stupid.

  22. DIAbetic unbotherdd February 22, 2016

    So funny to me that poor taylor toured for almost a year with 83 shows to more than 2 million fans & Bey is about To shatter that with only half as many dates. But Taylor still wins to Rihsceduled 1989 sitting pretty above ANTI-Charts this week. #40k-3rd-weak LMAOOOOOOOOO I knew CANTi wuld flop but never to this magnitude… the miracle it would take just to sell 1/3rd of 4CLOSURE.

  27. Theman February 22, 2016

    Taylor Swift is a worldwide phenom. She has sold nearly ten million albums worldwide with her latest album. She also has huge number one hits. Beyonce’s only advantage is her touring. She has not ever been the album seller that Taylor is. Taylor can sale out all of her tour dates. Beyonce doesn’t really score big hits nor does she have huge album sales. They stay reaching when it comes to Beyonce..

    • HailBeysus February 22, 2016

      Lmao Beyonce doesn’t sell like Taylor. Gurrrl stop for her first 3 albums she did. DIL (11M) BDay(6m) IASF(9m). Stop with the lies. Beyonce is fine in Worldwide sales as well. She’s been outsold by both Rihanna and Beyonce in album sales over seas. Also stop playing what huge hit has Taylor had!?!?! Didn’t Bad Blood with all the Hype on top BB for 1 week kii!!

  30. ???Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans??? February 22, 2016

    Alright, y’all! So, Taylor grossed a little over $6,000,000 in some of the stadiums she played at for the 1989 Tour. She even broke some records for the highest gross for a show in some of those stadiums too. Now, if Bey has a minimum of $6,000,000 on average per show (which I’m sure it’ll be higher because her tickets are more expensive than Taylor’s were) from 40 dates, then that’s a final gross of $280,000,000…which would knock Taylor out and move Bey to the third highest grossing female Tour. She’ll slay hard for this tour easily.

    I know Jay is happy for his wife, but I’m sure he might be seething a little bit inside too. He could NEVER do this his entire career. He’s always had to cling to another artist just to sell out those stadiums joint tours. I feel bad for him, but I’m sure Bey let’s him think that the majority of those in attendance for the On the Run Tour showed up for him.

  33. GurlWepa1989 February 22, 2016

    Congrats are in order of Queen B!! So proud of her. Why do we need to bring Rih into every Beyonce’s post? We should be proud that our black sisters are dominating the industry on their own respective ways!! We tends to complained when there’s not enough minority in the pop arena but when there are, you guys always pitch them towards each other..how are we ever going to progress? Bey album sales will never come close to Taylor and Adele but she’s killing it on your. Same for Rih, she’s killing it on single front, fashion and endorsement. Embrace them.

  34. HailBeysus February 22, 2016

    I never looked into it but, was Madonna’s Sticky and Sweet tour nothing but Stadiums? Because if not damn! Just how much were her tickets lol!

    • Tyler Makiavelli February 22, 2016

      Random question: But if you had to choose, would you rather be recognized as a singles artist or a performer? Lol.

      • HailBeysus February 22, 2016

        Performer hands down! When we go back to MJ, Madonna, Janis Joplin, Tina Turner, and Janet Jackson they’re always praised for being the greatest performer’s. Yes they have all these amazing accomplishments and revolutionized music, but at the end of the day we always go back to They Were Hands Down The Greatest Entertainers Ever! Loads of pop stars can compete side by side when it comes to singles just look at Katy, Taylor and fRih. But not everyone has the luxury of competing for best live act. As time has proven, those only come once in a great while.

      • Tyler Makiavelli February 22, 2016

        Couldn’t have said it better my self!

  35. DIAbetic unbotherdd February 22, 2016

    ^^^ Lol only Eminem could probably sell out stadiums solo. Stadiums are for white folk which why QUEEN GISESSLE got ppl upset pressed & bothered. Who sells out stadiums with URBAN music. Only Kween GISELLE. & with no opening act in site i hope her album is also feature less. @chile

    • ???Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans??? February 22, 2016

      I don’t want her to have any features either, but I’m not gonna be delusional and act like “’03 Bonnie & Clyde” isn’t iconic and soon to be legendary.

  36. DIAbetic unbotherdd February 22, 2016

    @chile when Bey tours with Jayz shes the main attraction but when Eminem tours with Rih its clearly his show. Kii goes toshow whos really #STADIUMSTATUS

    • ???Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans??? February 22, 2016

      You do know that she didn’t have to your with Eminem right? The Monster Tour was actually advertised and promoted before the On the Run tour. They could’ve easily did more than 6 dates if they wanted to…..and kii at you CHOOSING TO IGNORE the fact that Rih easily sells out stadiums and has been doing so since her FIRST world Tour. Hence the reason why she’s headlining 25+ during her so called “flop” tour and “flop” era. I enjoy you giving me a good laugh, though.

  37. Tyler Makiavelli February 22, 2016

    Lol wasn’t Beyonce’s last album supposed to go 5x platinum? Lol…. That album came & went. Meanwhile, Taylor’s lastest album is basically 6x platinum. Beyonce’s first album COULDNT even do that. Lol.. Outside of her touring Adele/Taylor >>>> Beyonce.. If she’s bold she should drop an album when they do, since she likes surprises lol… Being a great performer does not mean that you run the industry. She doesn’t.

      Lmfao bitxh didn’t you just make an argument about Basic Swift being a world wide phenomenon and Bey doesn’t compare. Now that your teas been clocked and thowin out the window you run back to local stats kii!!! You swifties are hilarious! You doing too much sis take the L and exit

    Congrats, I guess. It amazes me that after all these years people still pay good money to see Beyonce pop her pussay in heels, a leotard and 20lbs of blonde weave that gets lighter with each passing year. She’s good, but not great. And her fanbase is mostly comprised of psychotic femme queens who send you death threats when you voice the slightest criticisms of this overrated broad.

      OMG! I’m in love with that “Velvet Rope” avi. I remember that photo so well from my copy of the album. It always stuck out to me the most out of all the pictures.

    I actually forgot that I drove past Red Lobster yesterday and that parking lot was PACKED!!! Geez…..I wonder why, though!!!! Lol! Her impact!

      I love ya, but it was Sunday girl. lolRL always been popping. #DemChedderBiscuits

      • ???Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans??? February 22, 2016

        Lol! Same for Golden Corral too. Lol! Always packed every Sunday after church. Quick question, though: Do you think Liyah would be selling out stadiums like Rih, Taylor and Bey if she were still alive? I do. I believe she would’ve had more #1s and she would’ve eventually “arrived” in terms of album sales.

      • King Mark111 /.\ February 22, 2016

        In my heart of hearts, I think Aaliyah would had been like JT, an album every 4 to 6 years. She would had been a hollywood star because she had a great start in film. But we don’t live in a WHAT IF world, her career was great as it was. I mean she was the one that started it all for these one name singers.

      • ???Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans??? February 22, 2016

        I agree. But to be honest, she was a better dancer and singer than JT. She even annihilates him in the looks department too (not really fair, though, cause she’s black and privileged in physical appearance). She would’ve outsold him under the table scared and running with every album. He would’ve known what it was like to seethe and be pressed. I even GUARANTEE you that she would’ve called him out for what he did to Janet at the Superbowl. She was too real and authentic to just let that b******* fly and fade away.

    • Sssssssstunt February 22, 2016

      There is no one out there that is giving rumored hype BUT Beyonce to sell, follower.

  44. Carry On February 22, 2016

    I don’t understand what the fighting is all about. Didn’t they both have to wait until Adele’s album die down? Can’t they just have the concert together to ganger more revenue?
    My God!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    ANTI…….&…….FORMATION
    I thought Beyonce was for the people.
    “Big Freeda” show was cancelled in Mississippi now. Rihanna will be sabatoge.
    This is some kind of trickery. She has this one song to promote while she’ll have an album.
    So they want people to download Tidal And buy tickets?

    Don’t this sound bogus? I guess “this” album will be a week, day before her concert. Really??

    Something??
    Something??

    And there will not be a protest…….another PR stunt.

  45. RihYonce February 22, 2016

    Ready for this album announcement ???

    • HailBeysus February 22, 2016

    @Mark

    I’m sure when the movie studio were creating a look for Aaliyah in that movie that drew inspiration from someone who has had that same look as-well. Aaliyah was great but, you stay gassing her up to be more than she ever was… Not mention that movie flopped and was panned hard by critics alike! Your bitterness to Bey is so petty!

    • ? February 23, 2016

      You gonna explain how you managed to get those pre sale tickets or nah?

  48. No favs, just here for the music February 23, 2016

    When she says she slays, she wasn’t lying. You just can’t f*** with Beyonce. I’m so proud of her to be honest. While many other artists fell off, she’s still here. That deserves respect.

    Who cares? Girl, 14 #1s.

    • killian February 23, 2016

      I4# number 1s is good ,5 number one albums (soon to be 6) is better, selling out stadiums both home and abroad is better. Now go to the other post where 14 number ones (which is a good feat in this streaming age) is appreciated.

  50. shakira stan February 23, 2016

    There. We go again …this flop has nothing else to fall back on but touring ..formation was a huge flop and the parent album will flop as well …enjoy your tour beyawnce that’s the only thing you have as the has been you are .

    • Tyler Makiavelli February 23, 2016

      No, Anti is what you’d consider a flop album.
      B6 will most like go multiplatuinum, like self titled. It’s sales will be earned fair n square not BOUGHT by Samsung.
      Carry on! Go purchase 460 more copies of Rhianna’s mixtape.

  51. Don February 23, 2016

    Funny how I able to find seats available on Ticketmaster in several different sections for her “sold out” Baltimore show.

  52. Barb B**** February 23, 2016

    Beyonces album will outsell Rihannas no doubt.

  53. legendrihanna February 23, 2016
