Sellouts make case for Bey’s status as world’s top female touring artist.
With all of America and half of Europe on the market, sales for Beyonce’s upcoming stadium tour are “beyond fantastic,” according to Arthur Fogel, chairman of Live Nation Global Touring, promoters of Bey’s Formation world tour.
Formation has already sold out two New York shows (June 7-8 at Citi Field), two London show (July 203 at Wembley Stadium), and just added a second Chicago night (May 27-28 at Soldier Field). Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Boston, San Diego, Miami, Baltimore, Atlanta, Houston, and Santa Clara, Calif., are all clean, and others are headed that way. Even Nashville’s Nissan Stadium date May 5, which went on sale to the general public this morning amid the local police union's call for a boycott due to a perceived anti-police message in Beyonce’s performance at Super Bowl 50 halftime, is strong out of the box, with sales standing at over 33,000 for a gross of $4 million. Overall, the 39-date tour, which begins April 27 at Marlins Field in Miami, has already taken in over $100 million in ticket sales, with Beyonce inevitably headed toward a sold-out run and one of the hottest tours of 2016.
