Even those who aren’t interested in anything Beyonce, still must respect her marketing skills. Queen Bey spontaneously released the Formation video via YouTube on Saturday, Feb 6th. The following day she performed the song at the 50th NFL Superbowl. The beyhive went crazy and immediately took to social media.
Since then, Beyonce has been in the media for bringing Black Panther chic, Black Lives Matter message during the halftime performance. Well, you know the saying, “All publicity is good publicity.” This must be true because Beyonce announced the Formation World Tour, then the madness really occurred.
People are finding ways to come up with money to purchase tickets.
According to Capital FM:
Tickets for the first New York date on the ‘4 Intimate Nights With Beyonce‘ tour sold out in just 22 seconds.
The gig will be staged at the famous Roseland Ballroom and will see Bey perform every single track from her ‘4’ album.
The remaining three consecutive New York dates were released throughout the day and all quickly sold out but none beating the initial 22 seconds.
Who run the world? Beyonce.
After reading about ways people are purchasing tickets from using tax refunds to applying for loans, I had to research the cost of tickets in the nearest area. All I can say is…really!!!
Let’s put this into perspective. Only one song has been performed from the Formation album, but Beyonce’s fans have managed to sell out of presale tickets. The Fabulous & Money Savvy team won’t be at the concert, we would like to invest our money where there’s growth, but to all of you who are selling your worldly possessions to see Queen Bey…have fun.
