Kanye West Reportedly Struggling to Sell Hollywood Bowl Concert Tickets

The 'Famous' rapper's first opera show 'Nebuchadnezzar', which is titled after a king of Babylon in the Book of Daniel, is set to take place on November 24 at Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles.

AceShowbiz - It appears Kanye West is having a hard time selling tickets for his upcoming show at the Hollywood Bowl. If reports from Radar Online are to be believed, the concert ticket sales are currently in a slump as thousands are still available just days before the concert, which is dubbed "Nebuchadnezzar", is set to take place on November 24.

It's said that the tickets in every sections are still available, which is considered strange given that the venue doesn't offer up all of the seats for the upcoming show. The site further notes that thousands of the $20 tickets are still available for purchase, as well as those that cost around $300 to $525. Even the most expensive tickets, the $700 ones for seats in the front, can still be purchased.

Reps for Kanye have yet to respond to this rumors.

Kanye announced his first opera show "Nebuchadnezzar" over the weekend when he took to Twitter to post an image of the invitation to the opera, which is titled after a king of Babylon in the Book of Daniel. In the invitation, it's stated that the opera will be directed by performance artist Vanessa Beecroft and will feature "music with Sunday Service, Peter Collins & Infinities Song."

Details about the opera's plot are sparse, though Kanye has previously said that he saw similarities between his story and Nebuchadnezzar's, who is portrayed as a wealthy, capricious man troubled by vivid dreams. "Nebuchadnezzar was the king of Babylon, and he looked at his entire kingdom and said, 'I did this.' And God said, 'Oh, for real, you did this?' Sounds kind of similar, right?" he said during his interview on Apple Music's Beats 1. "I'm standing on the top of the mountain talking about Yeezus, saying, 'I did this. I'm a God.' "
