= 137k people. Probably 32-34 million in ticket sales.
I think Tokyo will be less than that since she will be using a regular stage and not an in-the-round configuration like in her previous visits.
What about South Korea, Malaysa, Hong Kong, China (Shanghai, Beijing)?
Will she do only one or two concerts in Tokyo in Japan? It's strange. The stage they will use for the arena shows will be two small for the dome. Will they build a bigger stage only for this city? Any chances she will add more there after New Zealand?
I'm not surprised by the high demand in Taiwan. She was huge in the late 90s.
I'm a bit concerned about Australia because in 2008 ticket sales were lower than expected. But we have to bear in mind that she had to reschedule the whole Australian leg because of the flu and that may have made an impact on ticket sales (many refunds and not used for the rescheduled date). Anyway, she didn't have a hit there for more than 15 years... We'll have to wait and see.
It's a wise decision to keep touring the world and do small tours rather than a year-long tour that leaves her exhaused.
