Lady Gaga’s “revolutionary” tour is on its way down.
Along with the other show changes she is planning right now, she should also change its name to FLOP This Way Ball.
Her next stop in Sofia, Bulgaria was originally planned to happen in the Vasil Levski National Stadium. But due to low ticket sales, Gaga’s concert was transferred to a hall.
As reported by Sofia news agency, Novinite, the FLOP This Way Ball has just changed venues and will soon happen at Sofia’s Arena Armeets sport hall (Gaga’s website at the time I write this, still shows the old venue):
For those who still doubt that the media protects Lady Gaga, please read the report by Novinite: they do not mention that the change of venues is the result of poor tickets sales.
I googled it and could not find a single major American website mentioning the change of venues because of her low ticket sales. The way they protect her is ridiculous.
When Madonna canceled one show in Zagreb because of logistics, the media spun it as if it were due to low tickets sales and published it everywhere. When Gaga changes her show because of extremely poor ticket sales, no one talks about it. What’s wrong with the press?
So what is the excuse Gaga and her fans will use?
Born FLOP This Way Ball was schedule to happen at a stadium that can hold about 55,000 people in big concerts. It was suddenly changed to a [way] smaller arena that holds 15,000 people in big concerts. It’s about 40,000 people less. And the media chose not to report it.
In other words: out of the 55,000 tickets that could have been sold for her stadium show, she sold less than 27%.
The tickets sold for the stadium show will be accepted in the arena show. But the arena only holds around 15,000 people in a show of that scale. If they changed the venues to a much smaller one accepting the tickets already sold, it means that the smaller venue can accommodate the ticket-holders.
And guess what? You can still buy tickets for the Sofia concert in the primary seller, which means, Lady Gaga sold less than 15,000 tickets in Sofia at this time.
For the record, Madonna performed in front of 54,000 people in the Vasil Levski National Stadium onAugust 29, 2009 with the Sticky and Sweet Tour. That’s the same stadium Lady Gaga
canceled changed venues due to low tickets sales.
Please send your e-mails to the Huffington Post, Examiner, Billboard, Rolling Stone, NME and MTV asking them why they haven’t reported that Lady Gaga changed venues in Sofia due to low tickets sales. And make sure you point that out everywhere this week: on Tumblr, Blogspot, FaceBook and Twitter.
Do not let the mainstream media cover up for Lady Gaga. Tell the truth!
