Sugababes - "When the Rain Comes" + 9th Album

A Sold Out Show just means all the tickets allocated for that particular gig have been sold, not that the venue was filled to maximum capacity, ddd.
So if I rent the O2 and exclusively sell three tickets to friends, I can also say I have a sold out show? Cool. Also great they chose to sell less tickets than they could have. I said before they did an amazing job shifting tickets. It was quite close to being full. It just wasn't really sold out.

Also to be fair I don’t think it was ever girls themselves claiming the O2 was being sold out (not that @theincredibleflipper had ever implied that). The majority of articles I read mentioned a “full” or “packed” arena anyway… which is true.
 
I really hope when the album comes everything is released at the same time on a Friday.

Like I feel if The Lost Tapes released the physical the same week as the digital it would have charted.

And When The Rain Comes releasing the streaming, YouTube and physicals all on different weeks. Ok it probably still wouldn’t have made top 40 but it could’ve come close.

So yes if anyone here talks to their management can you please ensure everything is rolled out on the same day. And I am happy to be milked for various formats by them like they’re Kylie or Taylor.

I think that's the plan? I still think the UK 2022 tour + this year of touring was establishing them back visibility-wise. There's no better way to engage an audience than nostalgia and live (non-TV) showcases, for them to drive their own narrative but also reintroduce themselves. Little much after the tour ended in Glasgow (the best show, might I add~) they released the loose ends of the MKS album on digital + streaming for easy access as something to satiate their audience. Then they continue touring through their biggest markets throughout their previous lineups. Then an explosive final date in London, where they began as a group, a physical vinyl release, and a new single, not only on digital, but much sooner in physical formats, plus the promise of a new record and a distribution deal with BMG, which only bodes well for them due to the other "legacy" acts that they benefit.

I really think they're on the right path and their strategy is building. We experienced them through a very strategic transition, so where they're going now doesn't worry me. They know what they're doing.
