Britney Spears

Ticket Sales Through the Roof

9/25/2013 11:46 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0925-britney-spears-planet-hollywood-gettyThere are conflicting reports out about ticket sales for Britney Spears' Vegas concerts ... some are saying sales are disastrously poor ... Brit's people are saying "it's the best-selling show in the history of Vegas."  TMZ now has the numbers, and it's pretty clear -- Britney is about to own Vegas.

Britney will be performing 48 shows a year for the next 2 years -- according to the contract obtained by TMZ.   Tickets are available now for the first 16 shows.  We've been on dozens of calls with StubHub, Ticketmaster and Planet Hollywood's box office among others ... and here's what we're told.

For the first 16 shows ... a total of 73,600 tickets were up for sale.  The number of tickets actually sold is impressive -- 70,242.  

Of the available, remaining, 3,358 tickets, 2,887 are in the nosebleed section.

We can't vouch for this being the best selling show ever in Vegas, but it's definitely up there.

Britney sources have told us they're actually talking about adding shows, and if that happens Britney will rake in even more than the $15 mil a year she's already guaranteed.

Ya, right. Can we say ticket brokers, scalpers, Vegas casinos, promoter, etc. These are artificially inflated numbers. Not buying this and if you are educated you should too.

TMZ stop fast reporting. You seem to file a lot of **** that isn't true then retract it. End it. Get your facts straight before you do it. I am ending my reading of TMZ... Sad I enjoyed it.

I find it VERY hard to believe this is selling well, and I'm not just blindly hating. Who is the target audience? Well it's safe to say no one over 40 is buying these, like they would Celine Dion tickets. The girls that grew up with Britney are now in their late 20s and 30s, and girls at that age have more sense and aren't into pseudo-stripper lip syncers anymore. And I doubt a whole lot of kids are buying tickets to these, because they're not Britney fans anyway. Who's the audience??

TMZ now has the numbers?

Shouldn't TMZ have got the numbers before publishing an article stating her sales were disastrous?

Yup    

This proves that there are 70,000+ morons who will gladly hand over their hard earned dollars to see a mentally defective tree trunk body retard lip synch to her auto-tuned songs. Just pathetic...

They 'sold' the tickets, but almost nobody will be watching the Britney Lib-Sync-Muppet-Show, because...these frauds sold the tickets to themselves .
