It used to be that when Madonna released new music and announced a tour, the album would skyrocket to the top of the charts and the tour would sell out in a matter of minutes. That doesn’t seem to be the case anymore though, and it’s something that is bothering the Material Girl.
Radaronline.com is stating that the 60-year old singer is “devastated” that her tour didn’t sell out immediately after tickets went on sale. She’d even chosen to perform in smaller venues this time around too, and even then there are still plenty of tickets available. The tour, which starts in Brooklyn, New York, at the Howard Gilman Opera House on September 12 still has hundreds of tickets on sale for the opening week. The bigger the venue gets too, the more tickets become available.
It’s not just Madonna’s tour however that isn’t garnering as much attention as usual. Her latest album, Madame X, has not only gotten mixed reviews, but none of the five released song have reached the Top 100. That could change when the album launches this Friday, but at this point pre-orders aren’t as high as expected either.
In the end, this doesn’t mean a whole lot. Madonna has had lulls in her career before, and usually she ends up reinventing herself and her sound to draw attention to herself once more. With a career that has spanned four decades, Madonna is a master at finding out what people want and how to get eyes on her. We have no doubt she will do so again soon.
