Christina Aguilera’s concert tour for the summer of 2010 has been put off until next year because of prior commitments according to the artist. And it may be the case that Christina needed more time to prepare for the concert tour with the new album Bionic coming out and her movie “Burlesque”, but the timing is sure odd.
But then again it could have been the ticket prices for her concert that topped out at over $160 a ticket with all the service charges. Or maybe the VIP ticket packages weren’t going over as well as they expected or her fans are already tapped out from the $175 they already spent on Lady Gaga concert for next year.
Any artist thinking next year is going to be a better year to roll out the touring money machine better think twice. With Irving Azoff and Live Nation’s plan to turn artists into concert tour whores, the market will be quite full for some time as they work to keep the cash flowing to the corporate morons running the music business now.
