Despite having combined selling-out track records, Jay and Bey are having trouble with sales.
A quick look on Ticketmaster reveals less than desirable ticket sales for the hip-hop royalty duo, with one industry insider exclusively telling RadarOnline.com their personal lives and a lack of airplay on the radio could be contributing. According to the leading ticket sales distributer, tens of thousands of tickets are still available for the "On the Run" concert in Miami on July 25, as well as Atlanta on July 15 and a July 12 show in New Jersey.

Another inside source claims the music duo have, in fact, been able to sell ample tickets.
UPDATE 2:13 p.m. PT June 18 - A second source in the music industry close to the tour came forward to tell Radar, "There has been huge demand for the 'On The Run' tour with almost 1 million tickets sold, which is an impressive amount for a tour this large. It's one of the biggest tours of the year." (RadarOnline)
Jay and Bey's "On the Run" music video premiered online back in mid-May.
Jay Z and Beyoncé are making us forget all about last week's drama by dropping an unprecedented trailer for their fictional film "RUN," inspired by their collaboration "Part II (On the Run)." The power couple play Bonnie and Clyde in the action-packed visuals, which feature an all-star cast including Sean Penn, Don Cheadle, Jake Gyllenhaal, Blake Lively, Emmy Rossum, and many more. But don't expect to see a full-length feature. According to the trailer, this film is "coming never." (Rap-Up)
Queen Bey confirmed speculated Jay Z tour rumors in April.
The singer on Monday announced a joint summer tour with husband Jay Z titled the "On the Run Tour," a nod to the pair's earliest collaboration, "'03 Bonnie & Clyde." The two have shared the stage many times before, but the upcoming dates are the first time they have embarked on a co-headlining tour--and with two-year-old daughter Blue Ivy Carter growing up, it's probably not the last summer excursion they'll ever make.
