Hip Hop's power couple Beyonce and Jay Z is not invincible after all as the sales of their upcoming "On the Run" tour is reportedly plummeting thanks to Solange elevator scandal. Due to kick off on June 25, Wednesday, the highly anticipated husband and wife team up is suffering from the lack of airplay on the radio and highly publicized divorce and cheating allegations.
Jay Z and Beyonce Knowles arrive at the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala Benefit celebrating the opening of "Charles James: Beyond Fashion" in Upper Manhattan, New York, May 5, 2014.
The famous Jay Z and Solange elevator brawl started it all and everything went down as the cheating allegations flooded the net, accusing the "Drunk on Love" performers of infidelity. The business mogul is allegedly keeping a lot of secret affairs including Rachel Roy who sparked Solange to attack the rapper during the red carpet Met Gala 2014 event.
"It's overload. The public has been left with a sour taste in their mouth because of the elevator fight and all the information that leaked about Jay and B's relationship afterward," a source told Life & Style in an interview posted on In Touch Weekly. "The night of the Met it was very obvious that Jay was doing things that were inappropriate, and Solange was looking to find out from Rachel."
"One the Run" was expected to be a huge success following the couple's sold out concert, "Mrs. Carter and Legends of the Summer." According to Perez Hilton, "the duo's tabloid scandals involving the state of their marriage and the epic Solange elevator brawl might be to blame for the low sales... But we have a feeling it's just the high ticket prices!"
Based on Ticketmaster, there are still tens of thousands of ticket are still available for the concert and the venue for the tour happens to be on the major U.S. that usually sell out quickly. These convert venues include: East Rutherford, NJ on July 12, Atlanta on July 15 and Miami on July 25.
