.... lots of angry fans who could not buy a ticket because the stadium is sold out.
No, not Elvis touring Europe but Beyoncé.
Can you imagine how many angry fans there would have been without a ticket if Parker would have been stupid enough to have Elvis tour Europe?

Assuming the venue in question holds 80,000 people, it does not mean 80,000 tickets were sold. Many tickets are sold ahead of the public sale, held back and sold at another time, sold through other channels or given away for a variety of reasons.

Like almost all shows for major artists, there will almost certainly be a "drop" later.

Beyonce is a very talented artist, the sellout is not surprising.
