Is Ariana Grande's "Dangerous Woman Tour" already in danger? Rumors are circulating that the pint-size diva is having a hard time selling tickets for her upcoming tour, which she announced earlier this month.
The "Into You" singer has been actively promoting her "Dangerous Woman Tour" on social media. Now, according to celebrity blogger Perez Hilton, Grande is having trouble selling out tickets for her tour. Tickets for the third concert series officially went on sale over the weekend. However, sales seem to off to a slow start. The interactive maps on Ticketmaster show that every show, which went on sale this past weekend, suffered low sales. This news comes after Grande, 24, signed on former manager Scooter Braun after disappointing sales with her latest album.
The singer was scheduled to perform 36 shows throughout North America between Feb. 2 and April 15. But, looking at the maps of her venues gives fans a glimpse at how many seats were empty after the ticket rush. Offering VIP tickets up to $599 may be a little too expensive for her younger fans. Here is a statement from the official press release for Grande's Dangerous Woman Tour.
"After many months of waiting, Ariana Grande finally announced her long-anticipated 2017 North American 'Dangerous Woman Tour' dates in support of her new release 'Dangerous Woman'. Ariana's fans were extremely excited after Grande revealed the dates for the first part of her big tour, going wild on social media to express their excitement after waiting so long for details. There's still only limited information available but if fans go to her website DangerousWoman.com they'll be able to sign up for a newsletter that will keep them informed about shows and appearances to be added later. Right now Ticketstub.com has an excellent selection of tickets available for the North American tour right now."The outlet also mentions that TicketStub.com is now offering a special discount code for fans to get tickets at more affordable prices. Maybe the regular ticket pricing is why Grande's have been put off from buying tickets to her upcoming tour. Fans will have to use the discount "15 years" in between the arrows at checkout.
On Friday, Sept. 23, Grande's label, Republic Records, confirmed to Billboard that Braun has returned as the pop star's manager handling all aspects of her career. The two previously parted ways back in February with the songstress, her mother Joan, and Untitled Entertainment's Stephanie Simon taking full reins on the management. According to industry insiders, Grande and Braun reunited earlier this month. Braun has been seen accompanying the singer on her recent interviews on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and The Ellen DeGeneres Show. He was also present with Grande at her performance at this past weekend's iHeartRadio Festival.
And, according to the Billboard report, Grande's Dangerous Woman has re-entered the top 10 of the Billboard 200. It earned a 19 percent gain on the chart in the week ending on Sept. 15. Now, Braun has an official A&R credit on the album, which was executively produced by Grande, Max Martin, and Savan Kotecha.
Last week, Grande announced that Little Mix will be joining her alongside her during the North American leg, according to We Got This Covered. In addition, Grande's friend and collaborator Victoria Monet will also be joining her. She took to social media to make the announcement to her fans.Ariana Grande's "Dangerous Woman Tour" will kick off on Feb. 2 and will run through the middle of April.
