For me, the 300s were literally the only thing left. I was so pissed. Carrie, why do you have to be so likable?
Boy talk about going to the best shows ever. ha ha
I did see Carrie coheadline at Madison Square Garden with Keith Urban though- so that was not too shabby.
I am praying she headlines MSG on the spring leg finally. She has never done so yet.
Ok I just noticed that the review from Massachusetts said there were 8500 people in attendance. Is that less then the last tour? I really hope not as I thought she was going UP in attendance not down.
Tx. That is a bit disappointing as I kind of hoped her numbers would go up this tour. I hope the New Hampshire dates did at least as that 11k number got me so happy!
TX. I wish she would do less secondary markets. I am so glad she is doing the Staples Center though. I think that is why I wanted her to do Boston. I think she would sell more there in the actual city then in the outskirts.
i think it went up cause to me it looked like there were more people this year for blown away than for play on
^ Brittany! That is good news. I read that the venue seats 14k people though, so even with Carrie's big stage, it is odd that they only sold 8500 per the article. That implies that she was only using partial seating, which doesn't seem accurate. Nothing was blacked off, right? Just the usual sections behind the stage and to the immediate side of the stage.
The reviewer could've gotten the 8500 total wrong. I say we wait for the actual numbers before we panic!!!!
You can't fill up the whole seating capacity due to staging and other elements.
^^ Well I hope Brittany is right but I've been tracking Ticketmaster for this show since June 30th and going by that the 300 level was never on sale. For this venue Ticketmaster actually showed the arena floor plan where you can see which seats are available and which are not. So I could actually see that at the 200 level not all the rows were available for sale. But like I mentioned before, they opened up an extra row a few days before the concert.
That doesn't mean that 8400 was the accurate number but it wasn't 14K.
Tx. I am sorry to worry so much but I am thinking ahead to EOTY for next year, and I want to see Carrie pull out 10,000 people tours this time around, not 7 or 8k anymore. Last tour Carrie sold out alot, but her numbers were like 8,000 alot, which is respectable but not on par with Lady A, Brad, Rascal Flatts, Jason, Kenny, or even Eric Church and Zac BB. All of them are selling over 10,000 alot of times. I am not including Taylor in that as she is pop so whatever.
Miranda sold about 7-8k on her recent tour, so I really hope Carrie can pull ahead of her as otherwise she won't have much of a chance at EOTY, assuming the jerks even consider her anyway. Then again Miranda got EOTY for selling 2k venues in 2010, so I guess anything goes. Miranda sold 13k in Nashville, which was incredible for her. I hope Carrie can match that as that would be odd and sort of sad if she can't match that. Last time, Carrie only sold 8,000 seats in Nashville, but this time she opened up the entire arena so she should at least sell 10,000.
My personal goal for Carrie is just for her to average around 10k this tour, and when I saw those wiki numbers of 11k for New Hampshire, I was SO HAPPY! But then this venue was less and perhaps PA was too. Unclear. I just want Carrie to go up a little every tour.
I don't beleive anything on WIKI until the official announcements are made. Then I can worry or be happy.
I know it's hard but we have to step back a bit and look at Carrie's long term career. If she builds her fanbase slower than others then so be it. Sure Miranda is selling really well but so was Sugarland and now they're averaging only 6K per show.
Like I said before, the BA tour may be selling slowly in some locations but in others it's selling REALLY well so that should balance the overall stats. Also keep in mind Carrie has a higher ticket price than Miranda, Eric, Jason etc. Even though the production expense of her show would be more than the others, it still shows that people will shell out the higher price to see Carrie.
