Kanye West’s Yeezus Tour Stop Draws In Only 4,500 People

(AllHipHop News) Despite the constant media coverage (or perhaps because of it) Kanye West’s “Yeezus Tour” is struggling to sell tickets at some venues. Multiple news reports claim that the G.O.O.D. Music leader’s tour stop this week only managed to bring in 4,500 concert goers. The Kansas City Sprint Center has a 19,000 seat capacity which means 76% of the arena was left unfilled for the show.

It has been a rough run for Kanye’s first solo tour since 2008’s “Glow In The Dark Tour.” The “I Am A God” rapper had to postpone several Yeezus dates after a traffic accident damaged some of the stage equipment, and he permanently cancelled scheduled stops in Vancouver, Denver, Minneapolis, Montreal, St. Louis, and Columbus.
