Here you will read that DaBaby’s New Orleans concert canceled after 500 tickets were unsold. It’s no secret that touring is crucial to making it big in the music industry. Beyoncé and Jay-On Z’s The Run II tour, as reported by AfroTech, is one of the highest-grossing concerts of all time, with a total of $253.5 million.
But what if ticket sales don’t skyrocket?DaBaby’s latest performance in New Orleans was cancelled because he did not sell enough tickets. The controversial rapper’s event was allegedly “deactivated” by Ticketmaster after failing to sell more than 500 tickets in an auditorium that can house up to 14,000 people, as the New York Post reported.
Your event has been cancelled by the Event Organizer due to unforeseen circumstances,” the company’s listing stated. However, they emphasised that all ticket buyers would be refunded in full. Tickets to the concert reportedly cost as little as $35.
The career of the Charlotte native DaBaby took an unexpected turn when, during his act at the 2021 Miami Rolling Loud event, he made disrespectful comments regarding HIV/AIDS. AfroTech stated that the rapper, born Jonathan Lyndale Kirk, was blackballed from performing at a few festivals due to his remarks.
One by one, the summer festivals he was supposed to headline fell through his fingers. The rapper lost a lot of money by not performing at festivals like Lollapalooza, Day ‘N Vegas, the Governor’s Ball, Music Midtown, and others. But Variety wrote about his inevitable fate at the time.
According to the source, “he probably kept a deposit, normally 10% of the performance price,” which in DaBaby’s case may have netted roughly $200,000 at a rate of $2 million. Despite this, “another concert-industry expert thought that DaBaby could have gotten 50% due to the late cancellation.”
