June 25th, 2014 2:01pm EDT
Jay-Z And Beyonce
Jay-Z and Beyonce haven't even stepped on stage yet for their On The Run tour, but that hasn't stopped it from becoming one of the most successful music events ever.

The 19-show tour, which starts tonight in Miami, was rumored to have disastrous sales. Some tabloids even hypothesized (or inaccurately reported) the elevator fight between Solange and Jay-Z was some sort of bizarre stunt to get ticket sales up again – or was the reason the shows weren't selling out. How a fight in an elevator would accomplish either of these is beyond us.

However, Live Nation has revealed ticket sales are cl...
