Ticket services report that ticket sales have dipped to 40% after the announcement of partial mobilization in Russia, Kommersant writes. The situation is similar to the end of February, but so far there is no tangible wave of returns.
In just a day, sales at MTS ticket windows (MTS Live and Ticketland) decreased by 30%. For the whole of September, the fall could be more than 10%, the company points out. In the spring, after falling to 50%, the recovery of sales took more than three months.
Overall TicketsCloud sales also dropped by 30% on September 21st. The decrease in sales to 40% is voiced by the producer of the Colisium International Music Forum Sergey Babich. The fall affected all types of events. Sharp jumps can be caused by the fact that ongoing events affect the psychological state of people, considers the public ombudsman in the field of organizing cultural events Olga Shpigalskikh. People are becoming more cautious, they do not understand whether it is necessary to go to spectacular events now.
