The band doesn't have to sell tickets per se, but Roxy is, oh, let's say "counting on" them having a certain draw. Although this is Yevtushenko's first time in the main room, they've played there once before. So I'm assuming that the band has earned the club's confidence.
(Of course, my assumptions about all aspects of showbiz have been shaken, re-shaken, and then stirred for good measure throughout the last half century. Hoping Amber doesn't have to take that same road.)
