    The album peaked at No. 79 and charted for 2 weeks in the US. Would there be enough interest for a US leg?

    I don't think so. She needs at least a cult fanbase to tour some US cities, i don't think Rita is there yet.

    I think she will do well. Just because it's summer and we have lot of tourist at that period.

    Media are now reporting that ticket sales are really bad. I still expect a total disaster and more than a half empty arena. They might go with the strategy of giving away tickets last minute to save some face and maybe earn some money on people getting a drink or two. That's what they did when Britney was in Zagreb with FFT.

    Apparently more than 2k tickets are sold.
    Which is expected, no one expected full arena.

    They were giving tickets for other concerts too not only for Britney’s.

    Up to 10k people can fit in Zadar venue. 2k/10k = 20% sold. That's terrible.

    And yeah, they do give away tickets for every concert, it's a regular promotional thing, but they gave away soooo many tickets for Brit. I know a lot of people who went and they didn't pay for their ticket. I also got mine tickets for free

    If you're talking about the MDNA date, then yes. The official reason was the production problem, and newspapers speculated it was that they couldn't agree on some stuff with the lawn. Which is nearly always a problem in Croatia when people want to do stadium concerts. Clubs never care about the lawn in the first place so they probably want to use the organizers to return the lawn in a better state than it previously was, and of course it costs more to buy the lawn than return it in a shitty state it was when they came.

    It was a year round thing with Ultra Europe and Poljud Stadium, the lawn talk for years now. After two U2 dates during their 360° tour the organizer bought a completely new lawn - it was the first time the lawn has been replaced since the stadium was built 50-60 years before those two concerts. So they probably wanted the same thing with Madonna's team. And we know she's cheap.

    There never was a planned S&ST date in Croatia.

    They gave so many tickets though. And we will find out soon how much of them were actually sold anyway as they said they will give out full financial breakdown as it was an event organized by local government offices. Local newspaper estimates 5k-6k people out of 9k available tickets.

    The financials are out for the Zadar concert.

    2.7m kuna expenses ~ $400k
    1.98m kuna income (of which 1.1m are from ticket sales) ~$300k (~$165k)

    -0.72m kuna loss overall. (-~$100k)

    Based on the profit from ticket sales she couldn't have sold more than about 4k tickets. So they had to have given away a lot of tickets for the arena to not look half empty. LOL. Now I wish every concert in Croatia was organized by local government. At least we would know the numbers.

    It's ok, we the citizens of Zadar will cover the money loss through higher communal taxes.
