Justin Bieber’s popularity is fading in Austrlaia, concert ticket sales in Australia has seen a 41% decrease ahead of his eight-show tour, reports News.Com.AU. Before Bieber’s stripper and drug use was out of control he sold-out shows in the past, his upcoming eight-show Aussie tour stop is seeing tickets barely reselling, some even going for half price, on websites like eBay.
His concert tour in Australia in 2011 sold out within minutes, but this time around people are trying to get rid of their tickets. A spokesperson for Viagogo.com, a major ticket reseller for the Australian market, told the news site that people have ‘lost interest’ in Bieber since the Believe Tour presales back in July. In fact, One Direction tickets are selling 187% more than Bieber’s.
‘With their squeaky clean image, One Direction is popular with fans and their parents alike. Bieber on the other hand is doing a very good impression of an enfant terrible, which seems to be putting off his fans and driving their parents to resell tickets.’
The alleged Brazilian brothel bust led to a 23% drop in the ‘Boyfriend’ singer’s ticket sales on Viagogo, Levenson said, followed by an 18% drop after the video of sleeping Bieber with the Brazilian woman Tati Neves surfaced on YouTube.
