Blah this way
Has Lady Gaga lost her luster? Hundreds of tickets left for concert at American Airlines Center
When Lady Gaga announced the North American leg of her Born This Way Ball Tour back in September, anticipation was high for her Dallas return. She hadn't done a proper concert here since July 2010, so it was a no-brainer that her date at American Airlines Center would quickly sell out, right?
Turns out that the Little Monsters have either wavered a bit in their fandom or are huge procrastinators, as hundreds of tickets remain for the Tuesday concert just days before the show.
The majority of remaining seats run anywhere from $105 to $197, a steep price to pay for even the most devoted Gaga fan.
There could be myriad reasons for the lack of a sellout. The album after which the tour is named is almost two years old, giving fans plenty of time to get interested in other music. Then there's the fact that the concert is taking place on a Tuesday, not exactly the ideal day for attracting huge crowds, especially for those coming from out of town.
But both of those excuses pale in comparison to the most likely reason: exorbitant ticket prices.
Including TicketMaster fees, the cheapest ticket in the house will set you back about $68. However, the majority of remaining seats run anywhere from $105 to $197, a steep price to pay for even the most devoted Gaga fan.
Of course, thousands of those high-priced seats already have sold, it's likely that Lady Gaga couldn't care less if there are a few empty swaths here or there. She'll bank a good chunk of change, and those that do show up will still be treated to Gaga in all her eccentric glory. Madeon and Lady Starlight serve as opening acts.
