Report: Mariah Carey Tour Sales Take A Tumble / 2-For-1 Being Offered

Published: Friday 10th Feb 2017 by Sam

It appears folk aren’t that interested in seeing Mariah Carey and Lionel Ritchie sing their hits all night long.

Full story below…

According to Page Six, the legendary duo haven’t had the best response to their recently announced US arena trek – which sets sail next month.

Word on the curb is that sales have been so slow that Ticketmaster is currently offering a two-for-one deal.

The site advertises the promotional price as a great Valentine’s Day gift, advising customers to “grab a ticket for you and your special someone … all for the price of one.”

This comes after the New Years Eve debacle, which saw the songbird thrown into disarray when her backing track did not kick in on live TV.

However, a rep for Carey denied this latest drama, saying:

“Mariah is working enthusiastically with Live Nation and Lionel’s team to put together an outstanding tour. Ticket sales are beyond great — fans are in for a real treat.”

Whatever the case, 2-for-1 sounds great to us; especially to see two superstars.

Mimi may have a broader problem with her brand and imaging, but we’re not sure it’s fair to put all the blame on her for this tour. After all, she is just opening.

Your thoughts?

    I’d take the two for one just to see these two while they’re still here and performing.

      Funny how “wanna be” S** & The City samantha, NEVER covers the achievements of Mariah Carey!? Like how her new video “I Don’t” is #1 on iTunes, VEVO and Spotify…..No! let’s just tear her down because we are dumb little kûnt boys who bump their gums! He needs to seriously be punched (at least) in the throat!!! He only knows the word on the curb because that’s where he gets his information on the corner curb!

    Sam, please educate yourself. First of all, Mariah’s not “just opening.” She’s been giving radio interviews all week long promoting “I Don’t” and she’s confirmed that they’ll be having ANOTHER act revealed shortly who is going to be the opening act of the show.

    Mariah and Lionel are both pulling double duty on this tour, which is clocking in at 3 hours long at each venue. It’s also interesting to see Lionel’s name virtually omitted from the blame, considering its his name at the top of the billing….yet Mimi’s the one getting bad-mouthed. Sexist much? Either way this isn’t exactly new practice, LiveNation is currently running the same marketing promotion on multiple Ariana Grande stops on her Dangerous Woman Tour, yet that’s seemed to go ignored as well.

    Either way, Mimi’s riding high at the moment. “I Don’t” is getting nothing but critical and fan acclaim and the video has already logged over 10 million views in a week and starting to take off at radio!

    • Jamon February 10, 2017

      Preach!! Hope you got all of that Samantha!!

    • Trose February 10, 2017

      Live for a intellectual read! Glad you told me she’s not just an opeNing act I may buy now.

    • Solange February 11, 2017

      For real tho, how can Samantha call this a Mariah tour now when it was knocking her down before for being just the “opener”?? the obsession I tell ya.
      Mariah and Rihanna really did a number on you, sam, cos they got u up in your feelings as always.

  3. Kwinzy February 10, 2017

    This LEGEND has a net worth over 500m while ya checking account stays in the negative. These pay day loan bloggers I swear… “2 for 1” relates to everyday working class ppl. More power to Mimi!

    • SMH February 10, 2017

      And what exactly does her checking account have to do with her inability to sell concert tickets?

      • Haters Gon’ Hate February 10, 2017

        It means she stayed booked, rich and unbothered ?

  4. The A Team February 10, 2017

    I knew Sam’s hating ass couldnt wait to report on this,
    side note, her euro and asian tours are pretty much sell outs

    • whut February 10, 2017

      But this isn’t about her euro or asian tours, this is about the U.S. one she starts next month that isn’t sold out.

    • Devina February 11, 2017

      I find it funny y’all are attacking the blogger but yet y’all visit the site. Making them money. Lol the tour is not selling well I think cause people only wanna see Mariah.

  5. SMH February 10, 2017

    Mariah has NEVER been a huge lucrative touring force. I don’t know why folks are acting like she is. But in all fairness, this is Lionel’s tour so it is kinda unfair to heap the blame on Mariah only.

    • M February 10, 2017

      Exactly. Mariah’s never really toured much with the exception of the last 2 years. I also just find it funny how Lionel’s name seems to be omitted from the headline, but I guess any way to try to bring Mimi down (insert eye roll)

      • Chitown08701 February 11, 2017

        If people really knew the music business which seems many don’t. They would know that majority of all performers have backup vocals. That is why I say computers will never take over because computers makes mistakes too.

  6. Max February 10, 2017

    Was wondering when Sam was gonna post this?

  7. Stephy February 10, 2017

    This is Lionel Riche’s tour… Mariah is a special guest. Her last shows in December sold out. But that was before the lazy NYC performance. Anyways, I’m sure this is FAKE NEWS. The shows will eventually sell by showtime.

    • Betty February 10, 2017

      I love Mariah wish it was fake news but it’s not I tried searching on ticketmaster for tickets for Baltimore,NJ and Chicago and it shows that there are ALOT of seats still available in a lot of sections

      • Stephy February 10, 2017

        Sweetheart, the tour doesn’t begin until March 15th. Heavy promo, with Lionel and Mariah going on talk show gigs won’t begin until another 2 weeks. They have plenty of time. This happens all the time for older acts. And with new ones as well. Only acts that really sell out like hot cakes are monster headliners like Bey etc…etc… Even Rihanna was having trouble filling arena’s last year with a global #1 hit. A lot of seats will be available until the 2 weeks or so… then they will start to slowly but surely sell. Watch. Lionel will be touring well into May.

    Chubby Flop

    Her career is O V E R !

    • Godriah February 10, 2017

      Says the delusional person who is making a single ounce of what both Mariah and Lionel make. Sit your ass down and chill tf out

  9. Stephy February 10, 2017

    And another thing… I remember, the media (FAKE NEWS) saying this about Mariah’s Vegas gigs. Saying she wasn’t selling any tickets. But when it was all said and done… She had a 90% sell out rate. So, we shall see when the actual tour begins. Lionel’s audience is mostly old white folks they’ll eventually pull thru by March.

  10. Betty February 10, 2017

    Oh and Ariana has a two for one special

    • Stephy February 10, 2017

      Many acts do. Tickets don’t sell like hot cakes anymore. Only for certain acts with really loyal fan bases

      • Chitown08701 February 11, 2017

        This is so true for the older acts. People I mean young people really don’t come to shows like this because it is much classier.

      • King B February 11, 2017

        Rih has a huge fanbase Nd she’s struggling with her tour.

  11. Swit Katz February 10, 2017

    Mariah is still queen. Haters should just deal

  12. JOHNVIDAL February 10, 2017

    Sam is totally disgusting and really has a problem with Mariah. He never, absolutely never reports any good news about her, and if he does it is always to write an essay full of “buts”. However, he is always quick to write this type of articles at every small opportunity, as if this were something that doesn´t happen constantly in pop world. Not to mention he is making all this about Mariah when Lionel Richie is also there.
    A pressed hater.

  13. Phil Brookes February 10, 2017

    I think that they’ve left out the fact that they’re also offering Arianna Grande tickets and New Kids on The Block tickets for 2-4-1 also…

  14. Theman February 10, 2017

    This isn’t Mariah’s tour. 2. She isn’t an opening act. They already have one. This is obviously a hate article. Mariah hasn’t even really promoted this tour. This is Lionel’s tour. Haters. It’s so funny how she was just in the top five of iTunes & Sam didn’t post about it. Whatever seats are out there, they’ll feel up.. Sam you trashy to act like this is her tour. You contradicted yourself. Anything to hate on. Also, other artists are doing this. Why didn’t you mention that?

    • Chitown08701 February 11, 2017

      Superstars don’t open shows for all the haters and they both are superstars see how many awards they both have and they are living pretty good to me

  15. AmericanHeartbreaker February 10, 2017

    Mariah should have never entered into Lionel’s tour as an opening act… Her management is crazy… fake TV series, fake TV lover, awful music video…. FIRE STELLA BULOCHNIKOV!

  16. Gee February 10, 2017

    This 2 for 1 sale is happening to various artists including Foreigner, Ariana Grande among others so for page six and this blog to single out MC is showing some kind of bias or better yet the constant focus just on MC is just petty. As I always say if you going to report something, report everything do not just single out one person.

  17. mr.m February 10, 2017

    2017 is her new 2001 ……..

  18. Hotgurl February 10, 2017

    This is an odd pairing anyway. Most of Lionel’s fans are older white housewives who definitely aren’t checking for Mariahs kitschy act.

  19. Indie February 10, 2017

    LIES this is a lionel richie tour, Mariahs last WORLD tour was just last years and sold out internationally, stop the hate!

  20. Monicatrust February 10, 2017

    He always writing hate post about Mimi. I don’t get it. She’s human like everyone else. Sometimes you win sometimes you lose but you can’t discredit her legacy. She is still a legend and has all and then some to back it up. So what she flop at NYE. Dust yourself off and try again. I don’t get why you must try to belittle her ever chance you get. Grow up and find something else to do. If you ain’t got nothing nice to say then don’t say nothing at all. So over Mimi bashing. Let the girl live her life the way she want to. We all have that right. It’s not for us to judge. Good day

  22. True lambily February 11, 2017

    I actually agree with Sam on one thing he said “It’s Not Fair to say it’s Mimi’s fault” this tour is really Lionel Richie’s tour she is a guest on it so low ticket sales don’t just speak for her they speak toward Lionel as well but she HAS TO CATCH blame??…But in all seriousness alot of the lambily were hesitant to purchase tixs to this because we did not know if we were getting a full set from her or not however I got my tixs back in December!!! SEE YOU IN CHARLOTTE MIMI And those BOGO tixs are in the nose bleed section!!

  23. Sno February 11, 2017

    Sorry i dont think its mariah carey they dont want see..its lional really..who wants to see this guy..??

  24. Mandy February 12, 2017

    Mariah Carey’s “I Don’t” single debut #9 on the Billboard Hot 100. Given she’s been out in the music business for almost 30 years, this is very impressive. Let’s get the song at least into the top 5. Lastly, to the haters, this just shows that you shouldn’t write Mariah Carey out. She always makes a comeback. #POW #StayPressedHaters

    • Keeping it real February 17, 2017

      what drugs are u on?
      Her song debuted at number 89! It barely mad the hot100

  25. Now at youfr best game way tuesidnz February 12, 2017


  26. Will February 13, 2017

    Mariah’s new single is ?…Can’t stop listening to it!…That is all lol

  27. Keeping it real February 17, 2017

    Mariah IS opening for Lionel Richie, reason why she is being announced as very special guest… she clearly cant headline a North American tour…

    Im surprised Lionel thinks he can still sellout arenas, just a couple years ago he could hardly sellout Casino venues…

    Its a fact, all dates on ticketmaster have less than half tickets sold with half the floor still available, way overpriced for the 2 of them… check ANY date, its the same for ALL dates…

    prices will def have to go down at least 50%
