Kanye West Struggling To Sell Tickets For Upcoming Concerts

Posted on December 18th, 2012 at 8:20 am

Is Kim Kardashian ruining Kanye West's career? That's the question being asked after a report surfaced that Kanye was offered a large sum of money to appear at New Year's Eve party, but only if he brought his girlfriend, Kim.

This coupled with lukewarm sales for his compilation album, Cruel Summer, and bizarre performance at the 12/12/12 Benefit Concert, has some thinking Kim is ruining Kanye's brand. Even the rapper's peers (Chris Brown, Cam'ron) panned him after he appeared onstage wearing a leather skirt that he probably borrowed from Kim's closet.

Then there's the rapper's three night-stint later this month in Revel Beach, NJ. RumorFix has learned that the rapper has failed to sell-out any of his three shows, and it doesn't look like he'll even come close.

As of this morning, there are hundreds of seats still available for concerts on December 28, 29 and 30. By comparison, when Jay-Z announced he would be performing eight shows in Brooklyn earlier this year, all eight shows were completely sold out within a week.

Jay also didn't list his tickets at exorbitant prices in a state ravaged by a hurricane. Tickets for Kanye's show range from $110 - $310. Jay, by comparison, listed his tickets at around $40.

This illustration shows just how many seats are still available for Kanye's first show. The dark blue areas are places where there are an abundance of seats; the lighter areas, fewer seats.

      i think kim and kanye could not be a more suitable couple. nothing more in the world than me wanting those two to get married after Kim gives back Kris H’s ring. Of course if Kanye was even 1/2 a man he would have insisted she give it back and get over it. Kanye can’t sell out stadiums because his music sucks and he is a poor performer. My opinion, stick to dressing Kim, that is where ur true talent is.

        I agree he’s a poor performer! But, I don’t think he does a good job dressing Kim. No disrespect to you! She has been on several worst dress list since he took over.

          i was actually being ficisious. The irony of Kanye dressing Kim is that Kim is supposed to be some kind of fashion expert herself and yet she lets this clown dress her so I think she should just keep listening to him because they are both idiots.

            Gee, it’s Gwen posting a negative post on Kim. The world is truly coming to an end. You are one sad girl. You must be ugly as can be, I can see why you are so jealous of any woman who actually gets the guys. Anyway, Kim is a fashion expert. That’s why every time the tabloids ask, who wore it better, Kim or someone else, Kim always wins. I have yet to see her lose.

      Um he wore that skirt in the Watch the Throne concert last year 2011 before he was dating Kim! Inaccurate information.

      Kanye can’t sell out an arena because the prices are too high. Jay-Z knows his audience while Kanye clearly does not. Also, Jay-Z and Coldplay are playing in Brooklyn, NY on New Year’s Eve. I think most fans would rather go to that show than Kanye’s.

      This site usually has the most neutral articles on Kim, this is one exception. Kim is ruining Kanye? LOL. Nope. He wore the skirt out of his free will, it was his choice, I doubt Kim had anything to do with it. As for sales, not every singer, no matter how popular, sells out every concert. It simply doesn’t happen. He’s been with her for a while now, if this was the case, this would’ve been mentioned a while back. I doubt even 1% of Kanye’s fans care one iota who his girlfriend is. If you can’t blame Kim on one thing, you can always blame her on another. It’s so pathetic.

      First of all Kim is not damaging Kanye’s Career his career was been on the rough side remember the Taylor Swift thing the racist comment the attacking a paparazzi and braking his camera and not to long ago he attacked a paparazzi again while out with Kim but to be honest all that has not stop his fans at all they are still buying his albums downloading is music going to his concerts and on top of that hes still being nominated for awards so Kim is not really damaging his career at all!!!!! and besides there are some concert tickets that do be on the pricey side!!!!!!!
