Justin Bieber's Ticket Sales and Prices on Constant Decline
According to News.Com.Au, Justin Bieber's recent media controversies have had a direct impact on the singer's ticket sales. As the website notes (via NME), tickets for Bieber's upcoming tour of Australia are selling on eBay for less than half their face value, with many auctions failing to attract any bids at all. Alex Levenson, the head of Asia Pacific at ticket resale site Viagogo, has noted that there have been 187 per cent more Justin Bieber tickets for resale in Australia than One Direction at the same point in the tour last month. Levenson has offered the following reasons for the decline in Bieber interest: "With their squeaky clean image, One Direction is popular with fans and their parents alike. Bieber on the other hand is doing a very good impression of an enfant terrible, which seems to be putting off his fans and driving their parents to resell tickets. One Direction won the battle for hearts and minds and Bieber has been left trailing behind in the fan stakes. His new bad boy persona seems to be putting people off." Could this be the end of pop kid?
