Four years ago, Madonna was selling out shows at Madison Square Garden. Now, she’s struggling to sell out the BAM opera house in Brooklyn.
The “Material Girl” singer’s “Madame X” tour that kicks off in New York City on Sept. 12 is off to a surprisingly sluggish start, with hundreds of seats still available for most gigs after more than a month on the block, The Post has learned.
That’s despite the fact that the 60-year-old pop star’s upcoming tour will focus on small, theater-type venues that typically only have a few thousand seats each.
After initial reports that the first shows sold out, an interactive seat map that went live on Ticketmaster’s website this week shows that hundreds of seats are still available for each gig.
For an Oct. 7 concert at the 2,100-seat BAM Howard Gilman Opera House — the last night of a 17-night stand that’s slated for Brooklyn — more than half of its $357 mezzanine seats were unsold as of Tuesday afternoon, according to Ticketmaster’s map.
