Published: Wednesday 10th Aug 2016 by David

Despite struggling to fill seats on several dates, Rihanna’s ‘ANTI World Tour’ isn’t the commercial bomb many may believe it is.

Why?

Its managed to distribute 93.1% of its tickets.

More below…

The live show was forged to slice fresh success into the singer’s career following the confusing and undeniably problematic rollout for its parent album ‘ANTI.’

Fortunately, despite seeing a number of its dates fail to cross the £1 million generated border, the show has succeeded in selling 93.1% of the tickets that were distributed to the general public thus far!

An impressive feat considering ‘ANTI’s unusually low pure sales, the show has already recouped the reported $25 million Samsung pumped into its campaign before it arrived in London on June 24th.

When it comes to an end?

November 27th 2016.

Where?

Abu Dhabi’s du Arena.

    Congrats I guess. Still if u compare it to Beyonce’s tour it’s very laughable.

    • IG: code_rex2.0 August 10, 2016

      No hon! What is laughable is a girl who has less the talent, half the experience, zero stamina and less than half showmanship is the biggest competition to the supposed queen.

      The world keeps talking s*** about this girl and she keeps proving them wrong. Year after year, era after era, album after album. Hand in ur congratulations and keep it moving. No need for backhand compliment.

      • Love it August 10, 2016

        You just shaded Rihanna and you can’t even see that smh.

      Where is Wayne’s tour?

    • LISA LEVINE August 10, 2016

      LIES. PEOPLE HAVE BEEN POSTING PICS OF THE ARENA ONLY 1/2 FULL. THIS IS ANOTHER SMOKE-N-MIRRORS RIHANNA MOMENT

    • Keri Qween August 10, 2016

      No its not when you consider their ages. Beyonce wasn’t 100% sold out at Rihs age. Either way, shell go on to gross 100+ million. If you look back at say..the Beyonce experience tour and i reported how many empty seats that tour had..or the I Am tour which did as well would you call it a flop because they werent 100% sold out? I doubt it. Rihanna has time to establish herself on the touring front.

      • JT August 10, 2016

        Lol @ Keri stan, save the excuses you ugly h**.

      • Chris August 11, 2016

        Facts…….

    💅💅💅….👀👀👀👀….😂😂😂😂😂

  3. King Markle 11 August 10, 2016

    This site is desperate for traffic. That Beyonce post didn’t do what they wanted, nor did the Anti 500K, or the two chart post. Good for Rihanna, successful album, singles, tour, shoe line and more. She’s doing great this era.

    • wrosy3 August 10, 2016

      Pathetic site that Sam runs at this point his hate toward Rihanna is becoming boring hate never wins Sam is like Sandra ugly rose hide in the corner and spill hatred

    • GoGo Yubari August 10, 2016

      The tour isn’t over yet. 93.1 is impressive ! Any tour that has more revenue than expenses is a winner. As for Sam, he’s predictable at this point. Stans Beyonce ,but keeps Rihanna on his tongue 24/7…wait all the Bey stans do this.

  4. wrosy3 August 10, 2016

    The pathetic hives will stay stuck on tour numbers but rih made more money than Beyonce on Forbes so that in my book is a big accomplishment

  5. Suicide Blonde August 10, 2016

    The tour is doing great, actually phenomenal, if one think how bad of a performer she is. So just congratulate the woman and move on.

    • LB August 10, 2016

      She has actually come through this era, she has been getting rave reviews, especially vocally.

      She now knows how to use her voice.

      • Suicide Blonde August 10, 2016

        I actually think that she is better at singing than performing/dancing.

  6. LB August 10, 2016

    The tour is doing great, especially the venues in Europe, she came through considering the messy roll-out.

    Rihanna’s portfolio has hit all fronts this era,

    -> Successful clothing line
    -> Successful tour
    -> Successful album
    -> Successful singles
    -> Successful fashion deals
    -> Successful magazine shoots
    -> Successful movies

    All that she has touched this era has turned to gold. Congrats Rihanna.

    • Krista August 10, 2016

      Delusional

  7. Dev August 10, 2016

    Isn’t the commercial bomb that Sam made it out to be.

  8. LB August 10, 2016

    I’m still laughing at how desperate this site is for hits though, pretty funny.

  9. ShakaZulu August 10, 2016

    Uggggh I think Rihanna should go away for a while I’m bored with her and this Era

    • RihTheGreat August 10, 2016

      LOL! You’re bored with her, yet she has no idea who or what you are…#DoBetterDummy!

      • ShakaZulu August 10, 2016

        Yawn!!! Wake me up when she does something iconic 🙄

  10. Wash yo mouth pls August 10, 2016

    Lol

  11. IStan4Rihanna. August 10, 2016

    Quite frankly, this is great.

    .

    This “93% attendance average” is largely compiled from her “U.S” dates as opposed to her “European dates” of which were/are 97/98% sold out, the mouse in terms pond being her ‘Wembley and Dublin’ dates. Her shows in France, Italy, Germany, Belgium and Austria were completely sold out and it’s rumored that she broke her previous attendance records at both San Siro and Stade De France.

    .

    In all honesty, would I like the tour to have been 100% sold out like the “Diamonds World Tour”? Yes, however that tour was marketed and promoted 1000x times than the “ANTI” world tour, all across the world, and she had much more leverage to hold on to. She has completely neglected her Europe/Oceania fans this era which has hurt her in a sense – those are two of her largest markets and she’s the best selling female artist, in both those continents, from this century (Adele will soon surpass her though). Granted she is now where near a touring force like Beyonce is now but she’s still accomplished a lot on the touring front without yet being 30 and I can only imagine her touring stats will grow as the years move on.

    .

    Hopefully, her team will learn from their TRAGIC mistakes this time around and push her more but theirs a first for everything. She’s still breaking records and having extreme longevity in her “flop” era so I’m very content. Kepp going, Queen! <3 😉 😉 😉

    • Keri Qween August 10, 2016

      Yesss 🙌

    • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy August 10, 2016

      I love how you always come through with those straight #facts

    • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy August 10, 2016

      Also you are right about her European fans that she’s forgotten. American likes hood rockstar Rihanna, but Europe likes popstar Rihanna which is a conflict for this last album. I thought she would’ve performed TIWYCF during the European leg knowing that they would’ve eaten it up, but no.

    • GoGo Yubari August 10, 2016

      Queen of Facts!

  12. Bitchpleaseeee August 10, 2016

    I thought that’s very impressive considering. Many of us have other personal issues and aren’t thinking about tours all the damn time you know 😆😫

  13. Kyle August 10, 2016

    The damage control lol. She couldn’t even sell out an 11k arena.

    • JT August 10, 2016

      You’re kidding, are you serious! My goodness.

      • JT August 10, 2016

        I just checked. I can’t believe Rihanna couldn’t sell out an 11k arena.

      Idiot mst of those shws u posted are 90% sold out

      • King Markle 11 August 10, 2016

        Lol, they’re so stupid.

      • BEY>RIH August 10, 2016

        And 11k arena should be 100% sold out.

  15. #JACKIE August 10, 2016

    Smoke and mirrors….FLOP!

    • King Markle 11 August 10, 2016

      And when is Ciara going to finish her Wackie Tour?

      • Keri Qween August 10, 2016

        Kii pay the troll dust King Mark. Its always desperate for the Navis attention

      • #JACKIE August 10, 2016

        It’s finished already boo. No smoke and mirrors needed either.

    • Datredd23 August 10, 2016

      At this point everybody should know you just spit out hateful remarks just for attention how can you shade Rihanna when you Stan for Ciara you have no business speaking against other female artists and never should let flop spew from your mouth or fingers on a keyboard.

      • #JACKIE August 10, 2016

        Girl shut up. Empti tour is a FLOP. Deal.

    • Girl August 11, 2016

      Coming from a Ciara fan? Honey has she book a stage yet? 😂😂😂😂

  17. JT August 10, 2016

    Every artist has a flop era, and this is Rihanna’s. Flop album, flop tour.

  18. B_Roni August 10, 2016

    Why do people keep competing their tours?? You can’t . Even if Rihanna sold 100 percent of her tickets she still wouldn’t come out on top.m because Beyonce not only has additional dates but higher ticket prices and stadiums. I could see if they both did all arena venues but If Beyonce doing stadiums of 50 thousand plus………. Then you can’t compare. Rihanna max capacity is 15 thousand per night for most of her shows. Regardless of how people want to spin it, you will see both artist in years to come. You will definitely be seeing Rihanna for the rest of this year. Get use to it.

    • BEY>RIH August 10, 2016

      The only thing frih should be compared to bey with, is singles and streaming. Literally every other avenue is a L for her.

  19. Yeah I Said It August 10, 2016

    Her stans use age as excuse for underperforming but the broad is basically 30 and going downhill instead of uphill. Anti Tour had so many empty seats it was embarrassing.

    • IG: code_rex2.0 August 10, 2016

      Personally I see no reason why Rih’s fans are pulling the age card. Bey is a touring force and knows how to put on a show. Has a more elaborate, a well constructed stage and set. Rih on the other hand, is doing amazingly well giving that she has never been revered as a performer., but this era is proving to be a game changer. Not only is she earning rave reviews for how much she has improved, the tour is doing surprisingly better than most people hoped it would. It was not promoted properly, it was rushed. I’m sure she will be fine when the final numbers come in. I see her doing 200M or close to it when the final tally gets published

    • Datredd23 August 10, 2016

      Everybody knows that veterans have the biggest touring audience compared to artist still in their prime!

      • BEY>RIH August 10, 2016

        Frih isn’t in her prime either and she still can’t sell out 11k arenas nor sell 1 million copies of her album. Her prime was 2008-12.

      • Datredd23 August 10, 2016

        Well this year was her biggest yet in money and one of her most successful eras to be honest with AWT gross might surpass DWT

      • Yeah I Said It August 10, 2016

        Her album album sales have gone downhill, her singles sales have gone downhill and her Tour stats are not as impressive as DWT which was selling out stadiums and now she can’t even sell out her arena. The delusion of you staying it’s her biggest year lol

    • Anita Baker August 10, 2016

      Why do yall care so much.Her numbers are fine she’ll most likely have a nice amount of money that’s all hers because she doesn’t have to pay 50 dancers and all the extra stuff the other tours have.She kept it nice and simple and sometimes that’s the best way to go.

  20. 👠👡👢💄💅👑💍Chile, take this “Itty Bitty Piggy” to the market and make sure you hold her hand while crossing the street!🐝🍋🍹🎈🏮🌺🌸 August 10, 2016

    I don’t get what some of y’all don’t understand about the grosses for the arena shows. Yes, she didn’t cross the $1,000,000 for certain shows, but it does t matter because the stadium grosses will take care of that. I’m sure she’s grossing a MINIMUM of $3,000,000 per night in those stadiums, so don’t be surprised if she comes close to a final gross of $160,000,000.

  21. Datredd23 August 10, 2016

    Her net worth is going to skyrocket next year! She will be worth 300 million by the time she is 29!! Yasss one of the most successful black females ever!

  22. 👠👡👢💄💅👑💍Chile, take this “Itty Bitty Piggy” to the market and make sure you hold her hand while crossing the street!🐝🍋🍹🎈🏮🌺🌸 August 10, 2016

    Just pissed off in my bed seething for dear life that she didn’t add a Twickenham date, but whatever. I’ll get over it eventually, but I seriously do hope that she gets another chance at a Wembley show.
    _____________________________
    I don’t know whose idea it was for her to waste her life away by doing ten O2 dates (yes, sold-out but still unnecessary) when she could’ve EASILY done a Wembley Stadium date, a Wembley Arena date and two Twickenham dates for the audience of 200,000 she played to in London.

  23. Surprise..(DEC 2013) August 10, 2016

    But why could FRIH not sell out an 11k arena tho IN THE US OF ALL PLACES. ?? I AM SERIOUSLY WONDERING!!!!

  24. Casual-T August 10, 2016

    When Rihanna decided to do this tour, I’m sure she had two goals in mind — 1. generating income, and 2. providing live entertainment for her fans. Please note that I did not list beating Beyonce as a goal.

    • Jamon August 10, 2016

      Exactly! Those girls aren’t thinking about each other. I don’t care if she’s only filling half the stadium, she’s making more then all of us. Y’all throw around the word FLOP way too loosely. Anyone who makes $75 million isn’t a flop!!

    • BEY>RIH August 10, 2016

      It shouldn’t be a goal because it is impossible for her.
      #sorryiaintsorry

      • Jamon August 10, 2016

        She’s making millions and touring around the world. What’s your goals, besides throwing shade at someone who don’t know you exist?

  25. Mel August 10, 2016
