Following the early success of Beyonce’s Drunk in Love single and music video, the couple announced a surprise joint tour called On The Run – along with the artwork (above) with their faces covered, perhaps in a nod to Bonnie & Clyde ’03.
They’re selling through Ticketmaster, however, as mentioned on Wendy Williams last night, the tickets are NOT selling. Few venues are selling out, and some have enormous amounts of unsold, expensive spaces left.
“Beyonce’s album had a big first month with ‘Drunk in Love’, but the last several singles have tanked on the charts,” claims a source of why so many stadiums failed to sell out. Adding, “If you’re launching a stadium tour, you have to have airplay, and she’s had no hits lately on the radio.”
“It’s overload. The public has been left with a sour taste in their mouth because of the elevator fight and all the information that leaked about Jay and B’s relationship afterward,” the source added.
Another source continued of the backlash from the elevator attack video, “To the public, Beyonce and Jay Z appear to have it all. But behind close doors, they’re not as happy as people think they are.”
