Megan Thee Stallion is headlining her very own solo tour for the first time with her UK fans left over the moon that the Hiss rapper has included a slew of stops across the country.

However, it has now emerged that tickets for the Hot Girl Summer tour have faced an underwhelming demand with all stops during Megan’s UK visit still having high availability.

Megan is currently lined up to play Glasgow’s OVO Hydro, London’s The O2 Arena, Birmingham’s Utilita Arena and Europe’s biggest indoor music venue, the Co-Op Live in Manchester.

The Co-Op Live holds a whopping capacity of 23,500 but it appears that Megan has come nowhere near close to filling the venue despite just over a week until her concert on 5 July with scores of tickets available.

Ticket-selling websites have even revealed that entire blocks have failed to sell a single seat at the brand new Manchester venue.

Fans hoping for a premium view could still be in with a chance too with seats still available to buy across the first rows of many blocks.

Megan’s dates in Glasgow, London and Birmingham have equally failed to shift a high amount of tickets.

A source told The Sun: “It is fair to say that demand for Megan’s Hot Girl Summer tour hasn’t been as high as had hoped.

“Fans have already begun to notice that thousands of tickets are still available for the UK run even with just over a week until the first gig.

“It is especially embarrassing for Megan and her team given that her rival Nicki Minaj played the exact same venues last month with each selling out including having a full house for the Manchester venue not once but twice.”
Fuming Nicki Minaj slams Megan Thee Stallion after rapper goes topless to diss rival’s husband in new music video
Rap icon Nicki found herself locked in a vicious feud with former collaborator Megan earlier this year after being left offended by the star seeming to take jabs at her and her husband in her track, Hiss.

It prompted a diss track response in the form of Big Foot and became one of hip-hop’s most talked about falling’s out.

In a further crushing blow to her rap nemesis, Nicki’s ongoing Pink Friday 2 Tour has already been labelled as the highest-grossing and biggest-selling female rap tour of all time.

It has already gone on to become the sixth highest-grossing tour by a rapper of all time thanks to raking in more than $81 million from its first 45 shows.

Details regarding the financial success of Megan’s tour, which has already kicked off Stateside, are yet to be disclosed.

Despite putting on a UK arena tour, Megan has yet to achieve a Top 40 album and will be hoping for better chart success with her upcoming self-titled third album release, Megan.
