Kanye’s Surpsie NY Concert Sells Out Fast, Tix Going for $1,000 & Up Online

Kanye West’s surprise concert tonight (November 23) at Manhattan’s Bowery Ballroom sold-out like wild fire, after sales began on today at noon.

Fans with deep pockets still seeking tickets can check eBay – with opening bids on the auction website set as high as $100,000. Comparatively, is offering tickets for much less with prices ranging from $1,800 – $5,000.

Bowery Ballroom offers an intimate venue; only 550 tickets were available for purchase. The lucky purchasers bought the tickers at a retail price of $100. Although the show was slated to be a surprise, news first leaked when singer Teyana Taylor, who appeared on West’s new album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, tweeted details on her Twitter page.

It’s rumored that West will perform My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, released Monday (November 18) in its entirety at tonight’s concert, starting at midnight, yet the label has yet to confirm.

Secret shows are typical for West; in August he performed a private show with John Legend at NYC nightclub the Box, with about 200 people invited. —Nicole LoPresti
