Report: Rihanna Selling ‘ANTI Tour’ Tickets…For $10

Published: Thursday 25th Feb 2016 by Sam
rihanna-anti-tour-dates-thatgrapejuice

As evidenced at last night’s BRITs, Rihanna has recovered from the “bronchitis” which caused her to sit out the Grammy Awards.

However, despite a guest feature on Drake’s #1 single ‘Work,’ ticket sales for the the star’s ‘ANTI’ trek don’t appear to have received an immediate lift.

So much so that the jaunt, which has been plagued by reports of so-so sales, is now selling tickets at a radically discounted rate.

Details below…

A student at Seton Hall University (SHU) shared that tickets to the New Jersey stop of the tour are being made available to her institution for just $10. Yes, ten dollars.

But there’s more. The generous fee reportedly includes bus ride to the show!

This news comes after tickets to almost all US dates were up for grabs in an Ellen show contest.

********************

At this point, the disconnect between Rih’s status as a singles seller and ability to put people in seats is more apparent than ever.

The real question here, though, is whether the $10 is actually for the bus fare?

Your thoughts?

    • rosy February 25, 2016

      All the hate comes from black blogs it’s pathetic she gets it from sandra rose all day these blacks is so mad a girl from the island came and made it over their fav the hate is real this is my last post and navy true navy ignore this site from now on and,lets get rih other songs to number give them more to hate

      • Cinnamon Gir February 25, 2016

        Will you knock it off? The whites on TMZ are way worse, calling her a monkey, etc. You look real stupid blaming black Americans for this flop

      • MannyG February 25, 2016

        Blacks will be the first to tear their own people down. So sad!

      • x_x February 25, 2016

        At the end of the day, we KNOW Rihanna can fill Stadiums and Arena’s as she’s done it before. Diamonds World Tour broke numeroud records and hit $140 mil in the box office. LOUD did quite well w/ $90 mill.
        My question to these bloggers would be, since you’re moonlighting as journalists, why not ask investigative questions? CLEARLY something is going on in Camp Rih that needs immediate attention. I feel she should def. clean house, evaluate her circle, and question management. It’s almost as if Anti in itself is set up to mark an Anti-Rihanna era. Weird how that’s working out.

      • Cupid February 25, 2016

        sadly that’s just how the black community is.

      • Tyler Makiavelli February 25, 2016

        Where was all of this sympathy for black artist when Rhianna was dragging Ciara and Teyana Taylor through the mud!??

    • LMAOOO February 25, 2016

      If it’s $10 why is still not sold out ???? KIIIIII

    • PhlyGerl February 27, 2016

      Starting to think the people (or rather the Rihanna haters) that post here have NEVER went to college. At both institutions I went to (large White state college & HBCU), our student unions had deals with HUGE artists’ concerts regularly. And, yes, the tickets were $10.

      The college student deal DOES NOT mean the actual artist or venue is ACTUALLY selling tickets for $10. Don’t know Seton Hall’s requirements, but guessing from my experience in TWO different colleges, I’ll guess that they’re about the same as mine were.

      RESTRICTIONS on events like this are usually:
      1) Ticket deal available ONLY to CURRENT students of THAT PARTICULAR SCHOOL (they ask for proof)
      2) LIMITED supply (usually less than 100 tickets)
      3) ONE ticket ONLY per student

      In my experience, the tickets are usually the upper seats. And even though you save money on ticket price, you still end up buying about $100 or so in merch anyway.

      Actually, I’m really glad Rihanna’s doing this. Especially since she’s becoming more experimental in her music and leaning away from major Pop Bops. GREAT way for her to expose her artistry and possibly gain new fans. Especially ones that currently have disposable time to stan and will later have disposable income to buy her music, concert tickets, concert merch, and ever-growing line of FENTY branded products.

      People REALLY need to respect Rihanna’s genius! Listen to her new “sound”, look at her new style direction, watch her on the movie screens (‘HOME 2015 & ‘Valerian’ 2017), check her copyrights, look up her ASCAP/BMI, applaud her opening THREE SUCCESSFUL business in ONE year (2015: Westbury Road Entertainment, FR8ME, A Dog Ate My Homework), becoming “the FIRST BLACK (some of everything)”, etc, etc, etc…

      Rihanna’s NOT shrinking or falling off. She’s GROWING and BRANCHING OUT! People with a myopic focus filtered through negativity usually don’t notice that though. They just, one day, notice that when they look at her they have to hold their heads up much higher and turn it all around just to be able to “see” her and her impact on the industry, culture, fashion, Blackness and womanhood.

  2. BeyIsKing February 25, 2016

    See Navy 14 #1s on the Billboard Hot 100 doesn’t count for sh*t. $10? Some legend not even 4 and Artpop did this badly. Y’all have NO room to ever call anyone a flop again

  3. BeyIsKing February 25, 2016

    And to think the Navy made fun of Gaga’s $0.99 album

  4. Bey-Minaj February 25, 2016

    Bwaahhhhahhahahahahahahahahhahahhhaaahhhhhaaahahahahahahahhhaha!!!!!!!!!! *lifeless* *leaves on stretcher* *cant go on*

  5. JESUSHCHRIST February 25, 2016

    Are you actually serious with “despite a guest feature on Drake’s #1 single ‘Work,'” ????????

    If anything it just looks like you’re reporting the wrong information and don’t even know whose song it is. Anything to throw shade I guess…….

    I don’t even say this as a stan of Rihanna, I say this as a stan of quality journalism

    • FORMATION IS RHYTHM NATION ’16 (Lana Del Fan) February 25, 2016

      He’s jealous that he’ll never have a 1/5 or Rihanna’s success/money

  6. #Beautiful February 25, 2016

    14 #1’s and she can’t sell out an arena?

    • MannyG February 25, 2016

      Rihanna has sold out Wembley stadium twice.

      • Cinnamon Gir February 25, 2016

        When?

      • Terry B February 25, 2016

        Never, that’s when.

      • LMAOOO February 25, 2016

        Wembley arena and wembley stadium are two different things nut case

  7. pat February 25, 2016

    That’s good for financially strapped college students

  8. Mariah The Legend February 25, 2016

    Nice photoshop.

  9. JazSullivan February 25, 2016

    Yikes! Even my fav is selling $80 tickets in theaters and pavilions. This is truly sad to watch.

    • Arx February 25, 2016

      Thats cuz your fav is talented and soulful.

  10. Janet February 25, 2016

    I think this is a testament to how if you act like a brat, then people lose interest. She had a really great run for someone with only a little musical talent, so she should feel proud. I dont think she is a happy person, and it shows in her eyes and attitude. Maybe she needs an extended break from showbiz for a while.

  11. Mimi,Bey,Gaga,Ciara February 25, 2016

    Lmao this girl is done, THE DECLINE was inevitable

  12. Mimi,Bey,Gaga,Ciara February 25, 2016

    She deserves it for dissing Ciara for failing to book stages now its her turn to feel that pain

    • Faf February 25, 2016

      It was funny how that yr Ciara went with 50 cent to SA and got a Milli to perform for new yrs
      Rihanna getting $10 for every seat filled still won’t pay her that much

  13. Mariah The Legend February 25, 2016

    really nice photoshop. beyhive mad. they still mad at rihanna’s #1 and her 14 #1 songs. LMFAOOOOOOO. how sad.

    • rosy February 25, 2016

      I agree the Navy should boycott this site I will be going elsewhere it’s sad how the spend time posting lies to down rih career it’s sick navy let the hives fight amongst themselves I think Sam put fake navy up to start s*** so he can get hits no navy come to this site

      • MannyG February 25, 2016

        It’s truly sad. I mean every day they hate on this girl.

    • Cinnamon Gir February 25, 2016

      Did Rihanna write or produce any of her number 1 hits?

  14. Hmmm…. February 25, 2016

    Damnnnnn, Ellen though? That’s tough. The worst part about this is that everything the hive said about her is true. She’s a singles artist, Can’t sell albums, Her star would dim if she took a break, blah blah blah. A #1 single with a flop album and a flop tour? Sounds familiar. It took her 3 years to stay exactly where she was, or maybe worse.

  15. YOUR MADGEsty February 25, 2016

    This site and its lack of journalistic professionalism is pathetic at this point.

    Anything to downgrade and demean Rihanna’s achievements but if it’s through Stan wars you’re able to gather your cheques…

    • MannyG February 25, 2016

      Agree 100%, this writer is a Beyonce Stan. So that explains it all

    • What now February 25, 2016

      Preach. How is this Rihanna’s doing when it’s clearly equal to something like a radio give away? They try so hard. Iconicanna has them pressed.

  16. Surprise…dec 2013 February 25, 2016

    LMAO…….THAT IS WHAT BLUE IVY USES TO CLEAN HER TOYS WHEN DIRTY. RIHSLAVE BETTER SELL MORE EXPENSIVE TICKETS, SO BLUE’S COLLEGE FUND CAN OVERFLOW.

  17. Mimi,Bey,Gaga,Ciara February 25, 2016

    “Good luck booking that stage you speak of” she once said when mocking Ciara, well it seems ms riri needs that luck now….. Karma is a b**** they say.

  18. Surprise…dec 2013 February 25, 2016

    LOL………….SAM IS FUCKKING SAVAGE. LIKE LEAVE THIS POOR GIRL ALONE.

  19. TheBeysusImpact February 25, 2016

    Good luck with booking that stage you speak of 😏😏😏😏😏😏😏😏😏😏😏😏😏😏😏😏… Meanwhile Beyonce is selling out shows and adding more dates ☕️☕️☕️☕️☕️☕️☕️☕️☕️

  20. JP February 25, 2016

    This kind of pricing is typical at US colleges/universities. The schools use money from the students’ activity fees to subsidize ticket prices. This is not necessarily an indication of Rihanna’s demand. I’m not a Rihanna stan by any means but I thought I’d clear things up a bit.

    When I was a student at Penn State, I was able to see Kanye West and Keisha Cole at discounted prices because Penn State subsidized the ticket prices. This is a pretty common practice.

    • AnnaliseKeatingsBoxBraids February 25, 2016

      True, HOWEVER when they start giving them out for free at UK universities then that’s a problem.

      • JP February 25, 2016

        Possibly. This era has been all over the place. I have enjoyed Rihanna’s music in the past, but I got a bad feeling when she released Four Five Seconds and BBHMM. Very weak singles that didn’t play to her strengths. It all kind of went downhill from there…mishap after mishap. That’s just my personal opinion though.

    • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy February 25, 2016

      I’m happy somewhere here has been to college and know how their student activity programs work…

      • JP February 25, 2016

        Yeah, this post is misleading. Not sure if it’s intentional or not.

    • Cinnamon Gir February 25, 2016

      But I thought Rihanna was above playing at colleges? She’s a stadium performer Remember?

    • Faf February 25, 2016

      They re not saying she’s not in demand they’re saying no one is buying tickets bc of the price to see her live so they lowered them

  21. UPGRADEBOY February 25, 2016

    Like flop flop flop

  22. Jenn February 25, 2016

    Sam you are so f****** stupid and obviously never tokk you ignorant ass to college.

    • #formlation 🐸☕ February 25, 2016

      He did go college(university), he studied sociology and media I think.

  23. beykim loves bieber one direction beyonce miley and gaga February 25, 2016

    My teddy bear costs more than that and it doesn’t even hold a mic.Le struggle

  24. JanStan February 25, 2016

    The fact is she’s a radio artist and there’s nothing wrong with that. BUT WHY WOULD ANYONE WANT TO SEE HER LIVE? She. Cannot. Perform. She looked tired at the Brits during ONE SONG that requires no vocal skill AT ALL. Can u imagine the exhaustion after 2 hours of that? Tried it once and learned NEVER. AGAIN.

  25. Jenn February 25, 2016

    Sam you are so f****** stupid and obviously never took your ignorant ass to college.

  26. beykim loves bieber one direction beyonce miley and gaga February 25, 2016

    Somebody tell me they got tickets and merch mixed together cause this would be the bottom.Even caps cost atleast 20.Oh gosh

  27. AnnaliseKeatingsBoxBraids February 25, 2016

    Not surprised. My friend got a free ticket to the Diamonds tour through her University, because sales were so low that Live Nation started giving them out like a lemonade stand. She ended up trying to sell it on online, because she likes Rihanna but thinks she’s an awful performer – and she still couldn’t get rid off it. I convinced her to buy a MCWTS ticket, and she says it was the best concert she’s ever been to. KIII and she’s not even a fan of Bey, but afterwards she became one. OOPS!

  28. Forehead Fierce February 25, 2016

    Lies. This site is turning into Media Take Out…

  29. beykim loves bieber one direction beyonce miley and gaga February 25, 2016

    Comming to a cinema near you the Anti Era.This summer from the creators of America monoxygen and B**** I cant earn no money comes the greatest comedy horror story of all time. (Plays clips from work) Directed by Rihannas masters and produced by Samsung is the greatest movie of our decade.Starring Drake,Tidal,Youtube, Kanye West and Rihanna is a story about the greatest tragedy known to mankind. COMING TO A CINEMA NEAR YOU…… PS: popcorn costs more than $10

  30. iSpeakTruthNoFallacy February 25, 2016

    Now Sam your journalism has turned to a whole new low of fvkery. The $10 dollar price is a partnership between Live Nation and the various different college institutions in the area. Every artist does this! That is how I saw Jay and Ye in college. Now do some real reporting about the tour like how the average ticket has increases $15 dollars within the last week due to Rih clinching that 14th #1

    • Cinnamon Gir February 25, 2016

      You have an excuse for Rihanna all the time don’t you? Face it, Rihanna is garbage and noone wants to see her “perform”

      • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy February 25, 2016

        And you’re just a carpet munching hater so…

      • Where are my edges tho??🌚 February 25, 2016

        Why are you giving cinnamon buns time and attention?

      • Encog2 February 25, 2016

        14 #1s….Please!!!! Half of that total is due to Billboard allowing artists who sings background or hooks on other artist songs. She did not achieve that many #1s on her on like the true legends (Mariah, Janet & Whitney).

  31. Mimi,Bey,Gaga,Ciara February 25, 2016

    But its good, its about time a new black girl had some shine too, rihanna can move to the left

  32. Erica February 25, 2016

    My thing is there are multiple dates on her tour that has 2-3 thousand tickets still available (check Ticketmaster), so why just NJ or is this planned in other cities too.

  33. beykim loves bieber one direction beyonce miley and gaga February 25, 2016

    In the words of Bey… This is for them preety somethings,living in the fast lane see you when you crash babe

  34. blue February 25, 2016

    This is a new low even for you Sam. If you gonna report on something then atleast have the grace to report on all the facts

  35. King B February 25, 2016

    Born This Way 2.0

  36. King B February 25, 2016

    Beyoncé is the one that should sell her tickets at a cheap price since she’s already 2 decades in the industry and having “flop” singles. But she’s getting bigger and bigger. Can’t wait for that new album, she’s going to be bigger than ever! Sales prediction: 3.3 million US, 6 Million worldwide (if she promotes and have radio friendly singles).
    I wish BEYONCÉ singles would be like this:
    1st single: Drunk In Love
    2nd: Partition
    3rd: Mine
    4th: XO/ Pretty Hurts
    5th: Jealous

    • JP February 25, 2016

      Her last album is my favorite Beyonce album. So many strong tracks.

  37. #JACKIE February 25, 2016

    The floppage this era is too much for me! I can’t! She deserves it and so much more!

  38. Rory February 25, 2016

    It was apart of a contest….. I’m missing the bad part

  39. Cinnamon Gir February 25, 2016

    She’s not enough worth $10. Sabe that $10 and get you some chibese food

  40. Cinnamon Gir February 25, 2016

    *save*
    *chinese*

  41. Cinnamon Gir February 25, 2016

    @MannyG,
    I didn’t see you complaining when Rihanna was making fun of other black artists

  42. Cinnamon Gir February 25, 2016

    @IspeakTruthNoFallacy
    You can’t debate facts with me so you have to start throwing out rudiculous insults

  43. ~The Arcade~ February 25, 2016

    When will her label and everybody involved start realizing that she is not as ‘big’ as they think she is? Everytime, she begins touring there’s always issues with selling tickets… correct me if I’m wrong; beginning with ‘Last Girl on Earth Tour’ in 2010

    • blue February 25, 2016

      that tour was sold out. And broke a few records too

      • Naomi February 25, 2016

  44. Panther February 25, 2016

    This guy Sam is a real loser, it’s obvious he doesn’t like Rihanna but what’s with the guest feature on drakes song?? That was really sh¡tty

  45. Adelephant (previously HYDROQINONE) February 25, 2016

    But baby, don’t get it twisted
    You was just another n**** on the hit list
    Tryna fix your inner issues with a bad b****
    Didn’t they tell you that I was a savage
    F*** your white horse and a carriage
    Bet you never could imagine
    Never told you you could have it
    You needed me

  46. helloitsme February 25, 2016

    The struggle with RihRih is reallllllllll….. Never a legend that’s for sure! I was asking myself who would go to her concert anyways…. Sorry I’m not even going if it is less than $10 🙌🏾 And yh I do got my BeeBee🐝🐝 ticket for sure…. I think 20 times more expensive well…. It is worth the slay! RihRih is just not a smart business woman as she needs to produce single and sell her body as a model. I mean compared to Beyoncé she is just TOOOOO LAIDBACK sorry I mean F****** LAZY! And Beyoncé is a firecracker…. Who think will win¿ Yp that’s right! And Beyoncé serves us in all her mistery and mastery wayyyyyyyyyy more than RihRih! She reminds me off a new age Britney Spears…. And see where Beyoncé is now compared to Britney. Well… I spent my time well worth on my disagreement of supporting RihRih it is time to be productive again. Oh wait just one thing…. That grapejuice should keep on focusing more on Quality (BeeBee) that keeps the business rollin baby you can not serve that much with the Goat Voice!

    I’m out

  47. Supreme February 25, 2016

    I think it’s unfair to compare Rihanna’s tours to the other Beyonce simply because Rihanna averages around 90 shows, while Beyonce average about 100ish. Beyonce did 132 shows her last tour.

  48. well well February 25, 2016

    *reads comments* *’giggles’* college rebate. okay. seriously bad gossipping @sam. gotta check her tix anyway? she really getting numbers done? uninteresting tho. shows gone be done.

  49. Melissa February 25, 2016

    I can not stand Sam (for many reasons), but can yall read?

    S/he put receipts there and says clearly that it’s a college only thing. Where is the confusion. Comprehension ppl

  50. Rihanna’s humble tea February 25, 2016

    Oop! Looks like she better work work work on that next album. This era is tanking!!! SMH

  51. GurlWepa1989 February 25, 2016

    Congrats Rih on her historical 14th #1. Work is currently #1 on iTunes and Anti is #2. 3 more dates of Anti World Tour has been added in Europe. Most of her shows are at 85% compacity here in Europe and she has yet to promote asides from the BRITs award last night. This site x on say whatever but Rih has already cemented herself in history book and will continuing to do so.

  52. HailBeysus February 25, 2016

    DEATH NOT FRIHANNA SELLING TICKETS LESSER THAN AVRIL LAVINGE!!! $25—->$10 SCREAMING!!! See Navy this is why the Heaux always sells out because her shít is always dirt cheap!!! At this rate she’ll never see that $200 million blockbuster tour gross KIII!!!!!

  53. 🍟🍧🍩Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans👟👗🎒 February 25, 2016

    Y’all, please throw a bone to the monster and not the dog! I bought BOTH of my tickets for a little over $175 and I’ve been checking TicketMaster, LiveNation, and Stubhub like crazy to check on her prices and it seems like she’s playing games when it comes to how much the tickets cost. Do y’all really believe that she’ll keep the tickets for $10 while “Work” is slaying radio and causing everyone to whine uncontrollably? Y’all better wake up and get a clue. The prices will increase momentarily.
