Rihanna still not sold out
With two months to go, Rihanna’s concerts in Cape Town and Johannesburg are still not sold out.
There was plenty of excitement among locals in April when it was announced that Rihanna’s Diamond World Tour would include South Africa. Johannesburg (13 October) and Cape Town (16 October) were listed among the superstar’s concert destinations.
However, tickets are still not sold out five months down the line. It’s believed that excessive prices are the main reason for this disappointment.
Golden Circle and general standing tickets for the Cape Town show will cost you R820 and R545 respectively. The costs will damage your wallet even more in Johannesburg as prices are R930 and R655 respectively.
These prices are more expensive than Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga’s recent concerts in Cape Town as their Golden Circle tickets charged locals R700 and R715 respectively. Bieber’s concert was sold out four months before his show, while Lady Gaga drew in a crowd of 55 000 in the Mother City.
