Why Jay Z, Beyonce Are “On The Run” From Nobody

Published

on

The public’s obsession with Jay Z and Beyonce appears to have dwindled because no one is buying tickets to their upcoming “On The Run” stadium tour. HipHollywood has discovered that almost none of the couple’s shows have sold-out. In fact, there are still thousands of seats available for shows in LA, Atlanta, Miami, Houston, New Orleans and other major US cities. Check out all those blue dots for the August 3rd show in Los Angeles.

The couple’s stock has taken a dive following their now infamous elevator showdown with Solange. That coupled with a star-packed trailer for an imaginary movie may have left a sour taste in the mouths of their fans. It could also be that the pair is charging too much for diehard fans to attend concerts. A floor seat will set you back about $550, which for most Americans, is still a lot of money.
“Beyonce’s album had a big first month with ‘Drunk in Love’, but the last several singles have tanked on the charts,” an industry insider told RadarOnline. “If you’re launching a stadium tour, you have to have airplay, and she’s had no hits lately on the radio.”

What do you think? Will you be checking out Bey-Z’s tour if they come to your neck of the woods?

    Not for $550 I won’t, that money is of better use in my children’s college funds. I love the pair but those tickets are way over priced.

    $550 for a floor ticket. They have lost their minds. NO way no how. Mayyybe for fifty bucks and not a penny more. Maybe not even for fifty bucks. Used to love both but these two are fake and played and need to have a seat.

    Up front the tickets are over 1000.00 and in the far rear 250.00 meaning u need binoculars. They are not the Rolling Stones. The ticket prices are too high and both just came off tour. They look too greedy and the public is listening to others right now.

    Broke blacks stay complaining, you really think $50 for Jay Z AND Beyonce…you people have lost your mind. And you wonder why they don’t cater to urban communities you people are cheap and quick to sell yourselves short. Sad really

      Not sad, they will go yachting and sailing and posting beautiful vacation pictures on Instagram with your hard-earned money. Now that’s SAD. If it’s really about making a difference in urban communities, I can think of a thousand organizations in dire need of money and time that are in major need of generous contributors. These two are not saving the world.

    It was Jay Z’s idea for Beyonce to go out on tour last year because of her successful Superbowl performance & the hype surronding her singing at the 2013 Presidential Inauguration. She was hot on everyone’s mind…so he thought $$! Fast forward a year later and Bey’s album exploded in Dec but has since stalled. But she has to promote the album cause it’s tanking…..and she needs to sing all those lovey dovey songs to her husband on stage. This is why they’re on the run.

    It’s not about being cheap or not supporting, there’s a huge difference between 50 and 550 for tix to see an act when they both recently had respective tours. 550 dollars is 2 months’ worth of food for me, I’m sorry but I’m not going hungry to see a show. If you have that kind of disposable income to throw around, why not become a patron of the arts, support black owned businesses, schools, etc.? And if you’re a big enough fan to go out and drop a few hundred on a ticket, by all means do so, but don’t lambast people for prioritizing their spending as they deem necessary. When you need help paying your rent or buying food, I’m sure Jay and Bey will be on their yacht drinking wine and laughing as they sail into the sunset.

    I’d love to go but these prices are ridiculous. Don’t they have enough $$$?!? Instead I’m going to check out Drake and lil Wayne…prices are a lot more reasonable. Bad move B and J….

No Joke: Bill Cosby Is Back On Stage Doing Stand-Up

Published

on

We are not trying to shame the elderly, but we are super confused why Bill Cosby is back on stage doing stand-up. He is after all 80-years old and going blind, but apparently that’s all apart of his routine.

Cosby did a set on Monday at LaRose Jazz Club in Philly and poked fun at his visual impairment amongst other personal anecdotes. He didn’t touch his pending trial, but many suspect his resurgence into the public eye is all a ploy to revitalize his image.

Just two weeks ago Cosby attended a dinner with friends and let reporters tag along to ask questions and take photos. This time around Cosby announced on his Facebook that he’d be doing a set a couple hours before. He wore a sweatshirt that said “hello friend” and also played the drums alongside the Tony Williams Jazz Quartet.

Folks in the audience are laughing … so maybe it’s working.

#BillCosby has returned to comedy since his trial last summer.

A post shared by 1063 Chicago (@1063chicago) on

The disgraced comedian’s retrial on sexual assault charges is set to begin in April, and a new jury selection begins at the end of March. He averted a decision this past June when a jury couldn’t agree on a verdict … ending in a mistrial.
