What luck for Kansas City and we've had a canceled Katt Williams show in addition to a postponed Carrie Underwood show two days in a row. I saw that there was a small section in the lower level available for Carrie Underwood and probably last minute tickets resellers putting into the box office.

i think Katt Williams and Carrie Underwood should do a combined makeup show on 5/1

I saw her last night in Des Moines.She was hoarse from the start and it only got worse as the show went on.She performed like a trooper through the whole show and apologized several times for her voice quality.She announced towards the end of the show that she would be giving the proceeds for the show back to the Des Moines community.My props to her for that.I'm sure there will be disapointment for not having the show go on but she clearly made the right choice on this.

That always have to be a tough choice for an artist, play less then 100% or postpone.

I missed the Katt Williams cancelled. The Sprint Center facebook page said "At 7:45 p.m., the promoter for the Katt Williams show has notified Sprint Center that tonight’s performance has been canceled." So was he in town at the time? Pretty late when people are lining up.

I don't recall a lot of canceled shows this year or last, nothing like that one year, forget the year, but I had a list going, it had to be 15 or 20.

I'm surprised that musicians bother touring during cold and flu season, and I'm amazed that more shows aren't canceled during this time of year.

I saw in the KC Star print newspaper that Diana Krall is at the Midland on May 1st also. That would compete with Carrie Underwood.
It seems that a lot of pages are now closed for comments so, have to post somewhere. Yesterday my cousin got two tickets for $17.50 plus $2.00 venue fee for the Bon Jovi show. They are in the upper level behind the stage. She was going to get the $27.50 tickets but, it was in a corner section of the upper level behind the stage so, she got the cheapest tickets instead. I've seen Bon Jovi 2 times and it was in Oct 1989 at Sandstone on the New Jersey tour and in May 2011 in Des Moines, IA for the Circle tour. Bon Jovi has a impressive video system and it would split into separate smaller screens connected together. They had robot arms attached to plastic video screens in the back of the stage. Jon Bon Jovi even walked on them at one point. Most of the time I couldn't see them since, I was in the upper level behind the stage.
I was at the library recently and was reading Billboard and they had some tour figures of shows the Sprint Center. It had Bruce Springsteen with a sellout of 13,875 and I thought the SC had a larger capacity. Billboard showed a sellout for Eric Church with around 13,500 and Madonna with a sellout of around 14,500. I may not be exact on these numbers and I was sure SC would have a capacity of 15,000 for end stage set up shows that don't sell behind the stage also.
At the matinee TSO show on Dec 9th(Sun) they gave a check to charity for 10,900. TSO gives a dollar from every ticket sale to charity. I looked at my cousin and we thought there were much more at the show. I was talking to a traffic officer and he said there was 13,000 at the matinee show. I guess they made the check hours earlier and lots of people got tickets at the last minute. I saw in the KC Star print newspaper a photo of TSOs show and that was during the opener called Winter Palace. Their show was much different then, previous tours and I liked it better also. They say that a TSO show is a cross between Pink Floyd and Kiss with all the lights, lasers, pyro and other effects.

I'm sure they will be disappointed for not having the show go on but she clearly made the right choice on this.

Thanks mecindylewis, I was wondering what Carrie Underwood's show would be like. It's pretty spectacular with those large video screens above the stage at various angles. I think Carrie is more of a rock/pop act then, a country act now. Her show cost from $45 to $65 so, it's fairly cheap for a big tour.
It's best that she postponed the show with her voice being shot. She does have a great voice.
