Madonna Sold More Tickets Than Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga's management used under-hand tactics, such as issuing buy-one-get-one-free deals to fans, in order to boost crowd numbers. The singer played in front of a crowd of 50,000 in Peru but only 17,000 tickets were sold.
Lady Gaga recently toured South American to disastrous ticket sales considering the size of the venues she was playing. She outright lied about her show in Peru, which she claimed had an audience of 50,000. Actual ticket sales, however, were reported to be around 17,000. However, many tickets for this show and others were given away for free with a buy-one-get-one-free deal.
