Kanye West proclaims himself the most impactful artist of this generation and also claims he’s more influential than Barack Obama but he can’t even fill a 19,000 seat arena like Rihanna & Beyonce can.
According to the Kansas City Star, only 4,500 fans bought tickets to watch his show at 19,000 seat Sprint Centre Arena in Kansas on Tuesday December 3rd.
KCS reports that during his set, Kanye said ‘I don’t always say the right things at the right time. I’m better at saying the wrong things at the wrong time.’
Kansas City Star wrote:
“Kanye almost certainly could have filled the Sprint Center 5 years ago. Tuesday’s poor attendance indicates how his scandalous love life, frequent impolite pronouncements and his gradual shift away from conventional hip-hop have alienated many of his fans.’
His Yeezus tour is not doing well at all. Not only are people not turning like they used to, he’s also been forced to cancel quite a few shows due to technical difficulties.
