One Direction continues to be unstoppable on the concert front. This time, the four lads come home and tour the UK and Ireland. They give multiple concerts at each stop. They still sell every single ticket they offer and probably leave sobbing girls in their wake who could not get tickets at the market – not even for ready money. They drop their fifth album at midnight tonight and go head to head with Justin Bieber. They’ve had stronger pre-sales, but he has had stronger singles. This is both of their’s only chance to top the BB200 before Queen Adele sails in and dominates the market for like forever.
Chase Rice is off touring by himself and doing a very good job of nearly filling a mid-sized theatre. America’s Got Talent is also touring and they are not doing such a good job of getting butts in seats. Finally, we have The Voice’s Melanie Martinez proving that most of her fans want to put money in her wallet instead of taking it out. She sold-out a concert in Kansas City.
