Bad ticket sales are not so bad

Swedish news service TT Spektra has interviewed EMA Telstar's CEO Thomas Johansson about the alledged poor ticket sales for Per Gessle's "En händig man" tour. "It's the best selling tour in Sweden at the moment," Thomas Johansson says.

Thomas also comments that around 80,000 out of 140,000 tickets have been sold to date, and that he's satisfied since the sales is going fine still. People say that the "Mazarin" tour sold 160,000 tickets in total, but Thomas says it was closer to 140,000. He also lets us know that normally a tour sells 50 % of the tickets before a big tour starts and that EMA counts on selling somewhere between 130,000 and 140,000 tickets. That makes an average of 7,000 people per concert, which is the same as "Mazarin."
