Bangerz Tour Topped By Where We Are

1d-bangerzMiley Cyrus X-Rated Live Bangerz Tour opens to a sold-out crowd **NO Canada, Germany, Austria**Miley Cyrus ticket sales dwindling, reports Forbes According to Google trends, searches for ‘Miley Cyrus’ peaked the week of August 25, immediately after her appearance on the VMAs.

Prices for the Bangerz tour were set aggressively high. By the time tickets actually went on sale for her 38-city Bangerz tour, ‘Miley Cyrus’ searches has dropped by 80%, to the same level it had been at over a year ago. Based on TiqIQ’s data, the average secondary market price for Miley’s Bangerz tour is now $182, which is down from over $225 just two months ago.

This decline in prices is in contrast to One Direction. One Direction tickets have been hot from the minute they went on sale, and far from empty seats and prices below face value, tickets for the tour this summer are well above face price. Since the original on sale, nine shows have been added, a move that will send One Direction further up the list of all-time list of top grossing tours.

While One Direction has been doing their best to cross over from boy band to legitimate artists, Miley seems focused more on how she can shock than her progression as an artist. Whether she’s twerking with a monkey on her back, smoking pot publicly or posing nude, she continues to generate notoriety from things other than the one thing that will sell tickets: her music.

While some argue that all publicity is good publicity, when moms are refusing to take their kids to the shows and flooding her tour promoters with requests to shut down the tour, things may have gone too far. On top of that, reviews of the tour so far have been mixed, commenting more on the spectacle than the talent.

One review summed it up as follows: ‘In spite of all the shock-and-horror (not) of seeing Miley ride an oversized hot dog while clad in a feathery mustard yellow costume, Cyrus’ Disney roots are still showing. The spectacle of the Bangerz tour is essentially a bad trip version of the Disney experience, a seedy underbelly vision of what Disney really sells children.’

Miley is still Queen. Best Of Both World’s topped Bieber’s hardest effort.

    Yassss 1D you go girls, can’t wait for their tour to start it seems like its taking forever, can it be September already?

    If the problem is with the secondary market it means that the tickets went sold and Miley will still get the money even if the seats aren’t filled. Too bad for the ticket scalpers

    • thecat61

      That’s exactly what happened. This tour is expected to rake in $100 mil.

  • SexxxyMiley

    People just can’t handle Miley sex

  • threelittlebirds

    $182 for a ticket!? if i was still going i could’ve gotten one for $60. unless, it depends on the venue.

    • Cici

      They were only $86 here

      • threelittlebirds

        maybe these are like super close to the stage prices?

        • Cici

          her floor seats were in the $200’s though, so maybe that’s what they were referring to.

    • laura

      Still cheap compared to the prices in Belgium.. The cheapest once are 80 dollars (so you have to stand and probably don’t get to see anything) and the most expensive ones are 222 dollars –‘ And this is after the prices dropped..

      • threelittlebirds

        damn

        • laura

          Welcome to Belgium, where everything has to be hella expensive!
          I swear, if you dare to complain about prizes of certain items when you’re American, and you come to Belgium, you’ll never ever complain again haha

          • Godney

            I fell you.. my country has the one of most expensive concert tickets of latin america.

            With the money i paid to see Britney i could had gone to Argentina and get a closer ticket.
            (still i do not regret seeing my queen, i do regret being poor and not be able to pay M&G :( )

          • laura

            I honestly don’t get how artists even dare to ask so much money :o
            Hahaha well atleast you saw Britney, it’s the memories that count :)

          • Godney

            Yesss… like Bitch im poor!
            But still i think some people can do it…
            like MJ (if he was alive) could ask for 5.000 for his M&G and people would pay it.

          • laura

            My sister went to a Macklemore concert a while ago and he only asked 25 euros and I was like ‘wow what a nice person, that’s a very reasonable price’. Quite sad that not all artists are like that..
            Definitely! I think Beatles could do it as well, I am pretty sure my mom would pay shit loads of money to go see them again haha I’m not even kidding, but she has tons of posters of them hanging in our ‘hobby room’ :p

          • Godney

            Yes, same with the police, i know my mom would pay lots to see them.

      • fn

        they sell the tickets for 300 dollars here

        • laura

          They were that price as well here (maybe even a bit more) before they dropped the prices. I can’t believe people are willing to pay so much money. But they’re this expensive all over Europe, I suppose.

  • Cici

    Meaning….she isn’t going to do too well with her next tour & album if she continues seeking shock value. She could really give a fuck less about being a notable musician.

  • man

    I wonder did Hannah Montana past sales exceeds 1D’s?

  • smb

    Bottom line is most of the tickets have already been sold. Scalpers and secondary outlets bought up the tickets. Performance income is derived from primary ticket sales, not secondary outlets or scalpers. Miley’s concert will still be successful, she will still get paid, even if everyone who has tickets decide not to come. The only income she would lose would be from merchandising, which she isn’t as concerned about. We will see however is she tones it down some, but in any case, even is she does tone it down, her music and concert isn’t meant for children. It’s target audience is the same as Madonna’s, or Lady Gaga, not Taylor, Selena, or Demi. She has already made it clear, if she ends up performing to an empty room, so be it. She is not going to be someone she isn’t. She has enough money for the rest of her life, so long as she doesn’t go off on crazy spending sprees, which so far she hasn’t and has actually be very fugal with her money compared to many other stars.

    Praise the lord…this two cent whore doesn’t deserve the attention that she is getting.

    • PopeMiley

      Are you so insecure that you have to talk shit about people who don’t give two fucks about you? You’re just some ugly bitter directioner that longs to suck five cocks at once. So you’re the whore.

      • thecat61

        OMG, I love it!!!!!

        • Zaina777

          I’m not surprised you fucking whore enabler.

          • thecat61

            :)

          • Zaina777

            Whore lover.

      • Zaina777

        Can I ask you a question? Why the fuck do I have to km be part of some stupid fandom to not like her. Maybe you should think for yourself and not because you are a smiler…I would never be in a stupid random…you can keeping a fucking whore enabler though. I also care because she is still a role model to young girls no matter what she does. You are a little fucking bitch…who doesn’t give a fuck about society.

        • thecat61

          I see your vocabulary and grammar has improved substantially, not. LMAO!!!!

          • Zaina777

            Your grammar is a whole shitload worse you imbecile. The fact that you have to attack my grammar instead of defending your precious whore Miley shows that I win this argument because you clearly can’t defend yourself or your whore.

  • boystan

    of course it is miley’s barely selling out any shows

  • boystan

    she’s doing great tho and the show’s really cool unlike demi’s

  • Godney

    I think her issue is that her tickets are way to expensive like girl!, your fans are (mostly) young girls… who prob needs their parents to pay… You are not like rolling stones who has a fanbase of mostly older people who can afford to pay.
