Critical thinking: FLOP THIS WAY BALL

Today Lady Garbage will play in a sports hall in Sofia, Bulgaria.

The show was officially scheduled to happen in the same stadium Madonna played for 54,000 people not too long ago.

But something happened, and Lady Garbage was “forced” to change venues, now performing at a sports hall that will accommodate between 15,000 and 17,000 people (depending on her stage).

But do you think Lady Gaga, or the mainstream media reports that her show had been transferred from a stadium to a sports hall due to low ticket sales?

Of course not. 

The excuses are all over the place, with people defending Lady Gaga and excusing the change of venues due to a soccer match that was scheduled after Gaga’s concert.


But no matter what excuses they give, there is one important thing you should all FOCUS ON when you make comments on websites that are not reporting the truth:

Gaga sold so little, so FEW tickets for the stadium, that the promoters had no problem in changing venues and accommodating the ticket holders in a sports hall that will fit about 15,000 people.

That’s where the focus should be on.

No matter what reason or excuse they give, the important FACT is that they sold only enough tickets that they are able to accommodate everybody who bought them in a 15,000 people sports hall, instead of a 55,000 people stadium.

The logic is:

If they had sold more tickets than the sports arena can accommodate, they would refund tickets and put new ones for sale again, for the new venue. But no. They don’t have to do so because the small amount of tickets they sold for the stadium show is so little, that they could change venues and still accommodate everyone in a small arena. So they will accept the same tickets in the arena.

Most important of all: there are still tickets available on the primary seller (check her website).

Meaning: Gaga sold less than 15,000 tickets for the show that was originally scheduled to a 55,000 people stadium.

Don’t let the mainstream media, or little morons, or Lady Garbage’s team fool you. Make the right comments, focusing on the real problem: she didn’t sell enough tickets.

I talked about this before, you can check it here.

FLOP THIS WAY BALL

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 StadiumBut 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?

The 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!
