That’s according to Lucy Desi Center Director Journey Gunderson, who said tickets for the Aug. 1 event – which is comprised of two shows – are selling at a record rate.
“At this point there are only single seats remaining for the 7 o’clock show,” Gunderson told WRFA during a Monday afternoon interview on The Local Rush Hour. “There’s also a 9:30 show, with just a couple hundred seats available. We sold out the equivalent of one full show in the first 12 hours of the pre-sale one week ago… but of course there are two shows and people were buying tickets for both.”
Seinfeld’s appearance is part of the 2015 Lucille Ball Comedy Festival, with tickets going on sale to lucy-desi center members last Monday, Feb. 2. They then went on sale to the general public yesterday, and Gunderson says the phones were ringing non-stop. As a result, it’s likely both Senfield shows will sell out much faster than last year’s headliner Jay Leno, who only did one performance.
“If we sold out Leno in two or three weeks then it looks like at this rate Seinfeld will sell out two shows in a record amount of time,” Gunderson said.
More details on the 2015 Lucille Ball Comedy Festival are expected to be made in the coming weeks.
