Kanye West leaving his home in Miami (11/30)

The good news? An amazing 4,500 people attended Kanye West's concert at the Sprint Center in Kansas City on Tuesday night. The bad news? The arena holds 19,250. That's 77% undersold. Ouch. At least traffic wasn't too bad trying to leave the arena. From the Kansas City Star:
The most shocking aspect of Kanye West's spectacular concert Tuesday night at the Sprint Center wasn't another suspect remark from the brash rapper. The meager attendance of less than 4,500 seemed inconceivably small for one of the most vital artists in popular music. West almost certainly could have filled the Sprint Center five years ago.
If you think this is more people in Kansas City not looking Music instead of Kanye becoming a Kardashian and losing all credibility, consider this:

  • October 13, 2007: Elton John performed the inaugural concert at the arena. Tickets sold it in 90 minutes.
  • November 5-14, 2007. Garth Brooks performed nine shows. All were sold out in less than two hours.
  • March 17, 2012: 18,000+ attended a concert by Jason Aldean.
It's literally my job to know about celebrities and I've never heard of Jason Aldean. He might be made up. A fictional character outdrew Kanye West by 13,500 people. Wow.
