Judging by stubhub prices for that show you will be lucky to get $100 for it.
Ha! The Seattle show seems to be tanking hard. Today there are $110 for front row seats in the center section. I have been monitoring since I am going to go to this show and haven't purchased tickets yet. Probably gonna wait for the massive dump in price the day of the show.
You can still go on ticketmaster and get amazing seats. It seems this is the only show that has TM's "Choose Your Seats" interactive map active for the show. In that same center section ($110 front row seats on stubhub) you can look and see there are lots of available seats. Same for the mirrored section on the other side of the arena.
Even the VIP GA tickets have gone down in price from mandatory $350 vip package to $199 to $141 (same price as regular GA).
Well I'm glad I only bought one ticket after all. I may just end up going to this thing, but my parents are in town this weekend and I don't know how they'll feel about me ditching them. If you're interested in my ticket, gam3g3ni3, send me a PM and let me know how much you're willing to spend.
Damn boss scheduled me on the same day as the Oakland show even after approving my time off.
So, is there not going to be BART or what? That would blow.
Well I can't fucking wait for next week to arrive
A Phoenix date might be happening. Luckyman Concerts posted the video of his SNL performance and said, "Looks like Kanye West starts his US tour tomorrow. Heard any rumors about an AZ date? Fingers crossed!" Then Zia Records just posted "Rumors swirling that Yeezus might be coming to town...you guys heard anything?" Both US Airways Center and Jobing.com Arena are open following his show in Houston on Dec. 7. Hopefully this happens.
If anyone has extra room in their car for the show at oracle in Oakland let me know. I have no idea how I am going to get there without bart.
you are soooooooo good lookin
Over a month until the Washington DC show I plan to go to and nosebleeds on stubhub are already $10 below face. Not going to buy until the week of and I can't wait to see how low they go.
Patiently waiting for vids and pics!

that looks insane. fucking kanye. I gotta stay off the internet till Thursday I guess...
Without spoiling too much, I highly recommend the back of the GA floor. 70% of the show occurred there while hundreds crowded the main stage. It was like watching Kanye at a bar. He was 30 feet away, and no one was behind me.
I thought that the show was okay. It wasn't amazing, like I felt GITD tour was, and I left before it was over because I just wasn't into it. He wears different masks for the entire show, and for some reason that bugged me. It was fine for the first few songs, but I kept waiting for him to take the mask off or some "revealing" moment but it never happened. Instead he switched masks after going backstage. He took it off toward the end though (during a surprise guest appearance that I wont spoil if you dont know already) but I had gone home by then.
The sound was off for various points in his set, and was especially bad for Kendrick, which was too bad.
The stage was very cool though, most of the show does take place in the very center, so if you have yet to buy tickets keep that in mind. The merchandise was the best part. I bought a couple shirts and a tote bag. Lots of skulls and confederate flags. Couldnt resist.
The masks bugged me also. For such an emotionally charged performer, you need to see his facial expressions to really be drawn in. You'd never see Celine Dion wear a mask, even though she probably should.
The unveiling of the mask was straight cheese, but the show really picked up after that. He was on stage until shortly after 130am, so you missed a lot.
Why wouldn't you stay for the whole show?
