A stadium tour for Gotye and his one massive hit single. What? Isn’t that a little… presumptuous?
I mean, don’t get me wrong. His song “Somebody That I Used to Know” is a great jam, he’s really cute and I’m sure a superb musical talent. But can’t you just see the crowd at the stadium, on the edge of their seats, ignoring all the other songs, waiting to hear him belt out “But you didn’t have to CUT ME OFFF!!!” because it’s the only song they know from his repertoire? Who knows. Maybe everyone who watched that video (all 247 million views!) bought the CD and knows most of his jams. I guess we’ll have to wait for ticket sales to come in and then we’ll know just what kind of star this guy is gonna be this year.
By the by, Rihanna couldn’t fill stadiums on her last tour. She has over 24 number 1 Top 40 hits, and Gotye has 1.
