"The Mrs. Carter World Tour," headlining Beyonce Knowles has fans eagerly trying to purchase tickets. The tickets sold out in various locations within a matter of minutes as people tried to purchase them. People are buzzing about her adding another date to her Houston show.
I, along with millions of other fans, was glued to my computer at 10:00 a.m. This is the time the tickets went on sale. Last Wednesday, certain people had the opportunity to purchase pre-sale tickets, which sold out in hours. I just knew that I was going to have a good chance at buying tickets, but I was wrong. As soon as I tried to purchase the tickets through Ticketmaster's website, they sold out, right before my eyes, at 10:03. This is the lovely message I was provided with.
The size of Beyonce's fan-base is crazy! Everyone was on the computer at the same time trying to purchase tickets. Calling the box office wasn't an option either, those are sold out as well.
Twitter was also going crazy with tweets by upset/angry Beyonce fans. Some even discussed there being a rumor spreading about her adding another day to the Houston tour.
Now, if you want, you can go to third party websites and purchase her tickets, but they will be extremely higher than advertised on the main website. A $85 ticket is running about $180. I hope Beyonce reaches out to her fans and adds another Houston date. After all, she was born and raised in Houston. I will be checking websites everyday, hoping a reasonable ticket will pop up. Until then, I'll just hope that she's adding another date!
Beyonce will be performing Monday July 15, 2013, at 8 p.m. at the Toyota Center in Houston.
