I don't think the reason Ghost is closing is solely based on ticket sales, I believe that it is due to the fact that Viva Forever is seen as a bigger crowd puller than Ghost. Sad as this is, replacing what is a juke box musical for a original musical score £££ speak louder than anything else these days.
Ghost will live on via a UK tour which will I am sure be a huge hit and in the long run prove to be a better way to thrive.
