Bette Midler struggling

The singer/actress debuted her Sin City show Bette Midler: The Showgirl Must Go On in February last year at the city's renowned Caesar's Palace venue. However 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, "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.
