Low attended Muse gigs?

Apologies if this has been done before, but with all the furore over tickets being snapped up, and the inevitability of most of the shows selling out, I thought I'd bring this up.

Has anyone been to, or seen, any Muse gigs where ticket sales have been poor?

Wikipedia has interesting data for the Resistance and 2nd Law tour. The worst gigs for ticket sales on both tours combined:

1 Rio Rancho, USA: 65% (4,915/7,500) TR
2= Calgary, Canada: 69% (7,648/11,256) TR
2= Brisbane, Australia: 69% (18,810/27,370) TR
3= Duluth, USA: 71% (6,749/9,500) T2L
3= Cincinnati, USA: 71% (4,983/7,050) T2L

Are these accurate? Were the arenas on reduced capacity? Seems unbelievable to me that they wouldn't sell 35% of their tickets in Rio Rancho, or for there to be 3,500 empty spaces in Calgary...

Thoughts?

The list is really incomplete, first off.

But at least the gig I went to (not on the list) sold rather poorly, iirc.

My list or the Wiki one is incomplete? I just picked the worst five. Many were at 95-100%.

The wiki is really incomplete, or was last time I checked.

I think my city ended up around 75-80%, though, which is a bit shit.

I was at the Gwinnett show in Atlanta and they account for seating behind the stage which clearly wasn't sold and they also have portions of the upper bowl covered too which they also account for. Not sure about the other numbers

When I saw them in 2010 in Milwaukee, we only had 73% (5,838/8,000). I'm hoping they'll come back for Drones even though our attendance wasn't great....it was a thursday night show so...

I was pretty bummed when WI was cut from T2L. I HATE driving in Chicago, and Detroit scares the hell out of me.

True, the gig near Atlanta didn't come close to selling out, and never does.
