Gwen Stefani and Eve’s “This Is What the Truth Feels Like” tour have had rumors swarming after reports of extremely low ticket sales from a few cities and ticket prices began to drop. The signs that sales seemed to be doing poorly became apparent when Live Nation sent an email to its subscribers telling them they could get four tickets to the tour for $40.
This is Stefani’s first tour in almost a decade. During an interview Stefani stated she feels like she has no other choice. “Every time I go out on stage, I have to do my very best,” she says. “You can’t just walk through it. You have to be in it, and it’s exhausting. And I think that’s one of the reasons I haven’t toured in seven years, because the last tour I did almost killed me, after having those two babies and then going on tour and nursing.” She named this tour after her studio album that debuted this year which did very well. Her album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart with This Is What the Truth Feels Like, earning her first chart-topper as a solo artist.
During her opening concert at the Xfinity Center in Boston she stated to her fans, “This is really fun!” and continued with “I didn’t know what to expect.” The venue was filled with fans listening to the diva as she belted her classic hits including “Just a Girl”, “Hella Good” and “Wind It Up”. She was accompanied with her opening act Eve who also performed hits such as “Let Me Blow Your Mind” and “Rich Girl”.
During her concert Stefani told the crowd, “All my homies showed up tonight?” continuing with, “You have to understand how starving — absolutely starving — I am for you guys.”
Seems like their tour may have had their initial hiccups, but the duo are off to a good start as they continue to tour the country until October.
