Kathy Griffin Tour: Carnegie Hall Sold Out But Radio City Has Hundreds of Seats Available


Kathy Griffin’s concert bookers may have over reacted to her new found popularity.

She is mostly sold out for tomorrow night at Carnegie Hall. But tonight’s date at Radio City Music Hall is wide open. There are hundreds of unsold seats.

The Carnegie Hall date was announced first and sold out quickly. We announced it here, a great success. But like someone who was doing well in a casino, Griffin got greedy.

Radio City is vastly bigger and much harder to sell for a single act. Also, with Carnegie Hall already saturating the ticket buying populace, Radio City would be much more difficult to fill– and a less exclusive seat.

On Ticketmaster, almost all sections are showing 100+ seats available. Maybe they’ll let the people in the cheap seats move down to hear Griffin, who is sharply funny and a refreshing rebuke to the current crazy political climate.
