People are even getting upgrades, from my understanding as the upper arena is being blocked off.

They sectioned off the side stage upper bowl (the rear upper is still in play) about three weeks ago. They stopped selling seats up there and whatever was sold has been relocated lower down.

Something odd about tonite's tickets, they discounted the second row tickets to a lower price ($247) than the rows behind it up to the tenth row ($267). Good deal for late-buyers. Looks like the front row hasn't budged but they didn't need to I guess, they sold almost all of those, good for Kiss. To all attending have a great time!

Brother Red.

I do believe all of the reductions are purely on a logarithm.

It’s all about how many, how much, time left ‘till showtime, etc, etc. All the while trying to produce the highest possible gate based on demand, or lack thereof for that matter.

Once subsets are reached actions get triggered. It sometimes probably produces anomalies like you’ve just pointed out.

Do you believe there would’ve been a larger gate at a venue that can’t hold more than just south of 5,000 people?

It'd be possible.

KISS -- February 24, 2017

Thackerville, OK
WinStar World Casino & Resort
Promoter: WinStar World Casino & Resort
Other act(s): None.
Reported audience: 3,450 **SOLD OUT
Reported gross: $417,230

Say you get that average ticket price at 5,000 seats, that's a gate just north of $600,000.

Possible?

Sure.

I was asking if he believed that a show in a venue that allows 50% less capacity would draw more money.

(There’s a follow up if he answers too.)

Yeah I’m afraid this will be my last as well. I’m considering The Ohio date they have scheduled in the fall but I don’t know. This is my 3rd time on this tour and the set list didn’t really change enough to warrant a fourth.
Have a blast man.

Me too, saw them in Kansas City in 1979 with Judas Priest opening. Saw them multiple times throughout the 80's and 90's, and 2000's.

Peoria this weekend will be my last. 😢

They stopped at Lunken though, which doesn't do commercial. Cincy's major commercial airport is in Kentucky.

Great show ,David Lee Roth was fantastic and Kiss was incredible especially Singer and Thayer

Lots of people saying they received upgrades, I'm guessing this Is due to most of the upper arena being blocked off .

They slash ticket prices, or just give them away, to get people in the building, are two ways.

And, in the sports and entertainment business you always have to count on a certain percentage of late walk-ups.

Like someone else said, the place was packed, and yes, the sides were blacked out. However, the band musically was tremendous, Thayer and Singer in particular. Thayer is becoming quite the showman. DLR was really good, as well. He was my first concert ever, when he had Vai, Sheehan and Bissonette. There were spots where he took me back. He sure can entertain.

I'd imagine the people upgraded from the upper levels probably helped remove some of those blue dots too. Rupp's a big place, would've been a minor miracle to fill it up anyway...

Almost all of the AVAILABLE seats were packed. All the seats behind the stage were blacked out to just like you would expect lol. I had my doubts about this leg, they put my doubts down last night. Tour is rousing success. Anyone who says otherwise is lying to themselves.

David Lee Roth and his band were fantastic and fun. Crowd was into them. Great opener for this show.
I saw KISS in Louisville and Cincinnati prior and this show was my favorite. KISS were great of course but DLR and band opening and the friendly confines of Rupp Arena were a plus too.

When Gene came out over the audience he went right over my seat. After the show about 10 people were looking on the ground. I thought they had lost something but they said Gene tossed a pick. I looked down under the seat and there it was. My first pick ever. Guy offered me 50 bucks but I had to refuse.

I heard multiple people say they were " upgraded "

I'm pretty sure they moved the people In the blacked out sections to the empty seats in the lower bowl , no where near the crowd of Cincinnati or Louisville ( which is expected) looked more full then it was .... but those were Large sections that they curtained off .

I'm gonna guess around 7 thousand....

Almost all of the AVAILABLE seats were packed. All the seats behind the stage were blacked out to just like you would expect lol. I had my doubts about this leg, they put my doubts down last night. Tour is rousing success. Anyone who says otherwise is lying to themselves.
So if they section off 20% or more of the arena, and sell what is remaining with discounts, it is a "rousing success"? I am not disputing this, but it seems that it would be the opposite of that?

I agree. Was there last night, too, and was at Louisville and Cincy last year. Yum Center was packed, and it’s huge. And Riverbend, with the lawn full like it was, probably had 18,000-20,000 folks jammed into it.

To define “rousing success” you’re definitely gonna need a point of reference. I really don’t know what they expected to draw so we can’t say for sure if they fell short of that mark or surpassed it.

I’m gonna believe being that this was the third show within and hour and a half they weren’t expecting numbers like the first two. Just the way a FOURTH show would probably draw even less.

KISS and Live Nation are longtime bedfellows. I’m pretty sure each side knows what to expect from the other. Like I said from the start. I fully believed they meant it when they said three year tour. They’re gonna farm every market for every dime and leave no stone unturned. It’s the KISS way.

No surprises.

Iron Maiden played Riverbend shortly before KISS and Bruce said onstage there were 15,000 people there and it was just as packed at both shows

We were there in the 2nd row. Yes the upper sodes were closed off but i didnt see an empty seat anywhere. I would agree it was upwards of 7 thousand. Great show... as a side note Rupp arena is really dated. Its about a quarter mile round trip walk from 2nd row floor to get to a bathroom.

I was at both as well. And yeah you’re right for sure. More people at both. I’ve been to a lot of shows and I’ve never seen a crowd like the yum center for any band.

I was there. Yes it was packed besides the top level being blocked off. Musically, they were in great form. Great show. Really loved it. Loved when Gene told the guy to stop texting after he spit blood. Haha Great stuff. Of course Paul had to come out and say "you can text if you want to, were here for YOUUU" Great stuff. Hell of a show.

Funny incident from the Lexington show. I believe it was right after GOT and Gene was in front of stage and he motioned for someone in the audience and said something like “don’t text when the God of Thunder is on stage. It got some laughs and small applause. Before the next song Paul tells the audience to text all they want, take pictures and video. Said basically you all paid for the right to do that.

Oh boy. I wonder what happened between Gene and Paul AFTER the show. LOL I was wondering what Gene was going on about. LOL I was like, "What's Gene on about?" Later on, when Paul started yammering about texting, I was like, "What?" LOL Anyway, someone said on Facebook, that at either last night's concert or maybe at another KISS concert on this tour, she saw a woman reading a book on her phone. I am like, "look, it's your money," but I don't get why people go to concerts, if all they are going to do is be on their phones. KISSTRONAUT, yes, they pay for the right to be on their phones, and I can understand being on your phone if you get an IMPORTANT MESSAGE, like from your babysitter or something like that, but to be constantly texting during the show? I don't get the logic. I don't object to taking video and photos, as long as you are not interfering with the people behind you, by the way.
