Madonna is scheduled to perform on September 12, 2019, in New York at Brooklyn’s BAM opera house. After having five singles fail horribly in a little over a month, she is having difficulty selling out the 2,098 seat venue.
The New York Post reports ticket’s for 60-year-old Madonna’s concert has been on sale for over a month, and hundreds of seats have not been sold.
Madonna’s upcoming tour will not focus on large venues, but rather venues that have only a few thousand seats.
Initially, reports were released that Madonna had sold out her shows. The Ticketmaster website tells a different story, which shows that hundreds of tickets are available for all gigs.
On October 7, the last night of her 17 concert residency at BAM, over half of the mezzanine seats priced at $357 remain unsold as of June 11.
Prime seats located in the orchestra in front of the stage which cost $357 had dozens of tickets available. On half of the balcony seats at $257 were sold.
StubHub bought a block of tickets and was selling them at $220.
Live Nation who is promoting the “Madame X” tour released a statement saying tickets are available because ten more shows were added in New York (for 17 shows in total) because of the massive fanbase of Madonna.
Despite Madonna’s “huge fanbase” and demand for tickets, all shows at the BAM opera house has hundreds of tickets available including September 12, the opening night show.
Madonna’s “Rebel Heart Tour” in 2015-2016, it is reported the Material Girl had over 30,000 fans at one of her shows. It was said she twice sold out Madison Square Garden (20,789 seats.) In 2012, it was reported Madonna sold out all seats in Yankee Stadium (54,251 seats) in twenty minutes.
