Veteran entertainer Bette Midler is struggling to sell tickets for her Las Vegas residency, according to reports.
The singer/actress debuted her Sin City show Bette Midler: The Showgirl Must Go On in February last year (08) at the city's renowned Caesar's Palace venue.
But the 63-year-old appears to be taking a hit from the ailing global economy - she isn't drawing the big crowds expected to her gigs.
A source tells PerezHilton.com, "She can't move tickets. Between December 30th and January 4th, Midler performed 5 shows and only sold out one. That's embarrassing!
"All those shows should have been sold out. It was the holidays!"
Tickets for Midler's extravaganza are priced between $95 and $250 (GBP62.50 and GBP164).
