Madonna may have been called the “Queen of Pop” but it seems like her golden years are behind her. Early this year, the “Rebel Heart” singer announced that she will be going on a world tour after a 30-year hiatus. Because of the long await, it is only natural for one to assume that the tickets will be sold out instantly. That, however, was not the case.
According to Daily Mail, Madonna’s upcoming Australian tour is turning out to be a huge flop. She may have performed last in the Land Down Under 23 years ago, but it seems like her fans do not miss her at all. Tickets went on sale last July 6 for the March 2016 tour, given the limited number of shows, one may expect that tickets will be sold out like hotcakes.
Turns out, fans may not be willing to spend a fortune on “Rebel Heart” concert tickets. The publication reported that only the bronze tickets, the least expensive ones, were being bought. Madonna’s waning popularity was reportedly a stark contrast to when Bruce Springsteen and Rolling Stone toured Australia. Both performers were able to sell tickets in a matter of minutes after the tour announcement has been made.
Daily Mail speculated that the reason why fans were hesitant to buy concert ticket for the “Rebel Heart” tour was not because of its hefty price tag. In her past concerts, Madonna only played tracks from her recent albums. Fans were reportedly left wanting more, they wanted to hear tracks from the ‘80s and ‘90s, during Madonna’s golden years.
