Remember those are the "announced" attendances. Our "announced" last year was usually ~14,000 (tickets distributed), but turnstile was much less. I watched the announced "sellout" in Toronto tonight and there were a bunch of empty seats in the lower level.
Not excusing our attendance for a second, but announced numbers don't mean squat.
