I really hope she is to be honest. I'd love to see her, but the only chances so far would have been as opening act for Justin Bieber years ago :lol:

The setlist is a bit disappointing.

Also why is she singing literally only a snippet of Witness? One of the few great songs on the album.

Oh and Firework as encore again? How original. :roll:

Same. Call Me Maybe is simply atrocious. Not here for her making me sit through that.
I hope she'll bring Purity Ring with her. They're amazing!

Curious to see box office grosses of this tour. I think she'll do fine even if not as well as Prismatic World Tour.

Some posts in ATRL say there is elements/flashbacks to the car crash Wango Tango performance - muted crowd in parts and some questionable choreography

UK dates seem so far away :o
Anyway the gross will be nowhere near what Prism did when the tour is finished, no chance in hell would she have had to resort to selling $20 and less tickets on the successful Prism tour.
I agree with the poster above, that’s just lazy she has Fireworks as an encore. At least Dark Horse, or something upbeat from Witness album

Yeah - lower ticket sales (and, therefore, prices) aren't a surprise for me. A friend of mine got a bundle of 4 good seats for $99. She just needs (a witness) to get through this era and keep on keepin' on. It'll be interesting to see her next creative move and how it's received.

I've never seen her on tour, but what I've seen of this show, it's tempting.

Random, but her speaking voice while on stage grinds my nerves. She's not the only one, but it's particularly off-putting to me.

I'm shocked by the fact that her label isn't doing anything at this point. Swish Swish never happened in US, BA never happened there, and they are still not doing anything to push her there.
Where is all that payola from her last eras (let's be real, she had it!). Radios were eating up her songs even when public wasn't feeling them (Unconditionally, Birthday, This is how we do), Taylor really blacklisted her behind the scenes, she has many powerful contacts.

I'm not shocked, and I'm not even sure she's mad about it. It's probably best to let the album die off. Too much money has already been spent with very little returns (in the US, anyway) and there doesn't seem to be any real bankable single left.

Either record a new and very catchy song or two and re-release the album, or just tour and let whatever sales she gets from that be. It's a misfire, and it happens. As long as she's still got it together on tour, she can pull through this.

I'm pretty sure they are all mad about it, they realized that she needs hit in order to sell albums and tickets, her fanbase is not that big, she's more of a general public act, she's still not established, critics turned on her even more... It's like she can't get one thing right this era.

I think songs like Roulette and Deja Vu would've been cute top 20 hits if she was in her PRISM era. Witness could be a hit.
