Britain's Got Talent 2011 live tour a flop with just 20% of tickets sold

Britain's Got Talent

Around 20 million viewers may have watched the Britain's Got Talent 2011 live final earlier this month on ITV1, but when it comes to going to see the acts it seems as though people just aren't interested. We've already reported how Britain's Got Talent live tour tickets have been slashed in price, and now it's been revealed some venues are just 20% full.

Tickets originally costing £35 are being given away for as little as £12.50, while other promotions including giving away two tickets for the price of one.

The tour tickets off in Newcastle's Metro arena on Saturday but just 2,000 tickets of the 10,000 capacity arena were sold.

Acts including winner Jai McDowall and runner up Ronan Parke top the bill, with other acts including group New Bounce and pianist Paul Gbegbaje.

In Liverpool earlier less week less than a third of the 11,000 seats were sold, with more people in the arena having bought tickets at reduced prices on the night than having booked in advance.

A spokesman for the Liverpool Echo Arena admitted to the Daily Star: “Sales have been disappointing. I’m not allowed to give you any information about ticket sales. BGT have told us not to say anything.”

One fan said: “I can’t imagine many people wanting to go to see, frankly, a dull bunch of finalists.”
