Blind Items Revealed #4

August 31, 2019

The permanent A++ list singer knows that her venues will not be full. She knows she needs to downsize to be sold out and that is the cause of the delay. She is not ready for half empty arenas.

That old hag needs to hang it up and ride off into the sunset.

AngelSleuth said...

I don't believe this. I tried to get tickets for multiple venues and dates and they were sold out.

sandybrook said...

Tickets may be in the hands of the secondary ticket agencies aka scalpers. Nonetheless she continues on because she sees stars older than she is like the Stones, the Who, KISS and Paul McCartney still selling out arenas and stadiums and she thinks she can too. If Jagger can still dance around, she can too

She belongs in the glue factory.

she needs to lower her damn ticket prices and she won't have any issues

Truth@sandybrook.
When I looked at her NYC concerts 50-50% of the tickets were "resale" tickets. And they were reselling for 100x their face value. At this point only her die hard fans primarily her gay following he ones attending her concerts.

MontanaMarriott said...

Sorry, 50-60%*

AvignonVagabond said...

Newsflash, Enty she is not playing arenas/

Jon said...

Ticket prices are insane.

J said...

In SF she's playing in the theater district. Maybe 2000-seat venue?

I can't believe she's able to sell out a phone booth, but lots of people have bad taste.

I saw her in Philadephia on the last tour with my sisters and my gay cousin and his gaggle of gays. While I am glad I got to see Madonna - she did put on a fantastic show - homegirl literally took the stage THREE HOURS late. I have never been surrounded by more irate gay men in all of my life, and they were enraged. It even was the top headline on the Drudge Report. Tickets were outrageous but we were really close to the stage. But I must say the fans were pissed. I mean you either have a bunch of gays who worship her or a bunch of women who are like - FUCK, get this started because we have to be up with the kids the next morning, get ready for school, go to work, etc. It's just so rude when celebrities are insanely late for concert starts.

I always wonder when everything, no matter what, is sold out in five minutes until I get to look at the StubHub type places and there they all are.

rosemary booker said...

Like it or not this is one of the most successful people in music ever! And with a record-breaking career in terms of longevity

Brayson87 said...

She's a nostalgia artist now but without any connections to younger generations. Sh!t by today's standards she's vanilla.

Although it's always funny when the tickets are too expensive and people are scratching their heads about why people aren't buying.

Faust said...

Did Madonna always have the ugly gap in her teeth? I don't remember that being there so many years ago.

Hamid said...

To quote Kenny in South Park:

"an old anorexic whore who wore out her welcome years ago, and that now she suddenly speaks with a British accent and she thinks she can play guitar and she should go fuck herself."

Brayson87 said...

They really do think she's a whore in South America apparently.

RobertaJoan said...

And THAT'S how you put your career into half-full arenas. I've seen Lyle Lovett, Jackson Browne, Sanborn/James/Miller, Hall and Oates, and countless more entertainers this season. They all hit the stage within 5 minutes of start time. Jackson walked out spot-on. no screwing around.

Madonna doesn't realize we're getting old and can't sit around forever. I've never seen her because of this well-publicized habit. Either be ready to be on time or stay home. I suppose Madonna imagines her time is so valuable while the peons have nothing better to do. Uh, nope.

RobertaJoan said...

Her career isn't in question. Until now. Being late is the height of entitled boorishness. Looks like half her fans aren't putting up with it anymore. Good for them.

RobertaJoan said...

South Americans consider all women are whores except their own mothers. They have not made the intellectual leap that someone thought their mother was a whore in her day. Juvenile fools when it comes to women.

apple_seed said...

She's playing the Chicago Theatre (much smaller venue than the usual stop) for a few nights; and the amount of open seats as recently as last week is shockingly embarrassing. By comparison, Ali Wong sold out three shows (and added a 4th) in quick turnaround.

Jon said...

Maybe she had the shits or vomiting. She's literally one of the greatest entertainers ever. I've seen her 3 times and she was AMAZING at each show and she was on time for all of them.

She was late by 3 hours ONCE. That doesn't define her nearly 40 years of fabulosity.

Cocobean said...

I don't want to hate on her because of her age, but she's just THE WORST! So pretentious.

Don't Mind Me... said...

Not exactly the poster gal for aging gracefully

J said...

Gracefully, no. Aging? Absolutely and harshly.

Jennifer said...

@Faust The gaps always been there, but it's probably gotten bigger with age. It does seem much more noticeable now.

Mango said...

“Madonna’s upcoming Madame X Tour will be device free; fans attending a concert will be required to put their phones in pouches ahead of the event.”

I had to put my iPhone in a pouch at a studio taping of a sitcom a few years ago and that was a PIA. I can’t imagine the logistics of having to do that at a larger venue.

Mango said...

Aging? Absolutely and harshly.

@J - Her hands look like talons, I think mostly because her body fat percentage is so low. She’d look better if she gained a few pounds.

BRAD PITT said...

who should play sean penn in madonna biopic Blonde Ambition

- Ryan Gosling
- Ben Foster
- Trevor Morgan

Da Mac said...

Not a single word about how her voice is completely shot? Did any of you (painfully) watch Eurovision this year?

Who would pay to listen to her crap music anyway? Like J said, there's no accounting for bad taste...

Freckles said...

She never could sing. I think it's time for Vegas Madge

Ginger Pigeon said...

@DaMac: Yes, indeed. Eurovision - after decades of acts with outlandish costumes, pretentious staging, clunky political statements, and eye wateringly bad singing. Whoever could have prophesied that the worst example in Eurovision history would turn out to be Madonna, and she wasn't even competing.

Anyone who didn't see this, Madonna was outshone by an Australian blonde poppet belting out pitch perfect opera while waving around strapped to 5 metre bendy stick. She made Madonna look like the Picture of Dorian Gray.

Also a bonus: Madonna's young collaborator being interviewed backstage: Yeah, I knew Madonna's music 'cos my mum grew up listening to her. Oof.

She's an absolute state in every aspect of her life
