Attendance/Ticket Sales this leg?
« on: October 04, 2019, 12:55:03 PM »
Just curious what the crowds have been like so far on this leg.  Based on ticket sales, the venues all look like they're at least half empty.  I'm seeing them in Mesa and there are currently 600 seats left in a 1600 seat venue.  That venue/city always sells out, so the lack of interest is disconcerting.  I'm guessing it's because they didn't change up the set list at all.  Has this altered the experience of seeing them live at all?

Baltimore....lower level:  85% (watched the final thirty minutes of the first set in the back rows).  Mezzanine:  90%.  Balcony (where I decided to watch in the upper reaches):  20%.  The back fifteen rows had maybe five people.

But....I enjoyed it more than the sold out TA show.  Went to the basically sold out DC show in April.  I am sure many didn't feel like seeing the same concert again.  Sadly, they missed the band in great form, JLB in great voice, and AWE was worth sticking around for.

There was a traffic jam on the way to the venue. I wonder how many were affected by that. My dad and I were. We got to our seats just before the lights went down. I remember looking out a couple times during the show when they'd light the audience and the lower level was pretty well packed. The upper level wasn't very full. At one point, I looked up at where I sat for IW&B two years ago. That section was empty.

Stifel Theater in St. Louis holds 3,100. I would say there was 1800-2000 people there for the show.

Based on that picture, I don't think that was it. The spread of the crowd is too predictable. If traffic was the leading culprit, different sections of the venue should be equally sparse, no?

Probably. I wonder how many were actually affected by traffic other than me. Probably not many, if anyone else. There were other events in the area too but how many DT fans are going to see Zed or the NC Symphony over DT? 😁

I know at least one member of this forum was at the Symphony that night lol
Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

About 75% full tonight right before the show.

Got myself tickets for the Amsterdam show (january 11th) and the London Apollo show (22 feb). I wonder if they'll do something special in London.  ::)
