Tickets prices for upcoming dates on the 4:44 tour are as low as $14 in some cities

4:44 may be Jay-Z‘s most critically-praised album in at least a decade, but the tour in support of the 2017 sneak-release doesn’t appear to be turning as many heads.

According to Digital Music News,┬áticket sales are shockingly low in many cities just days out from performances. On the day of last week’s performance in Anaheim, $11 tickets were the going rate for nose-bleed stubs (some finding tickets for as low as $6,) with attendees reporting near-empty stadiums upon arrival.

It’s not just past dates that are underselling; a quick scan of StubHub reveals after-market tickets for November dates are generally going for between $14 and $50, with plenty of tickets still available in nearly all sections for his pair of homecoming shows in Brooklyn at Barclay’s Center (see below.) Tickets for those shows are going for a minimum of $55 via StubHub and $101 on Ticketmaster.

The report also suggests that the TIDAL owner’s not-so-quiet war with TIDAL’s streaming competitors (Apple Music, but to a larger degree, Spotify) may be to blame, as buying tickets to the shows are proving to be as difficult as finding a legal copy of the album itself.

In any case, bargain-bin prices on seeing Hov live in Brooklyn is never a bad thing.
