Despite the fact that Kanye West proclaims himself the most influential artist, only 4,500 fans bought tickets to watch his show at 19,000 seat Sprint Centre Arena in Kansas on Tuesday, December 3rd.
It should be mentioned that Rihanna and Beyonce managed to fill the same arena. According to the Kansas City Star, 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."
Reportedly, Tuesday's poor attendance indicates how Kanye's scandalous love life, frequent impolite pronouncements and his gradual shift away from conventional hip-hop have alienated many of his fans. According to Kansas City Star, Kanye's 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.
