I wish i COuld go to Carrie's concert as well..
Is it my imagination, or did they take the box scores down for New Hampshire? I thought I saw them on wiki the other day.
Did you read this?
Despite all the little surprises, the biggest might have been that the 2004 winner of “American Idol” didn’t sell out the venue (there were empty seats all along the top of the arena). Perhaps some fans were holding out for the Nov. 10 date at the XL Center in Hartford.
^ yes it takes sometimes several weeks to a month or more for box office scores to get reported to Billboard. Once Billboard has the data, they list it.
If you look at the dates, most of those shows were from the summer.
Yes it only goes to the middle of Sept for some shows.
I am a little nervous that the NH show got taken off the wiki page as I hope that doesn't mean the numbers were wrong. I liked those numbers!
Even though the shows are not sellouts, I still believe Carrie should be selling more tickets overall then the PO tour as she opened up more seats in every venue this tour, and is even playing bigger venues in some areas.
So the 11,000 numbers for NH seemed legit.
Remember when the section 300 seats were behind a curtain in some arenas? Those were the early days.
I expect her box scores to start showing up maybe the end of month or beginning of Oct. You got to remember that they actually have to be reported to Billboard and in some cases they may not be. Which is why some artist touring stats are wrong because they are missing some dates
Regarding the empty seats, the top rows of section 200 did not go on sale and the 300 section did not go on sale for this concert.
There were about 300 tickets left from what was available for sale earlier in the day of the concert so she's pretty close to a sellout even if she didn't sell out. But note that some extra rows had been added to what was made available originally.
Personally I would not like to sit in the 300 sections in any arena. Even when Carrie moves to the back of the arena you still are far away. The worse seats are way back on the floor. Not sure why anyone would buy those, lol.
