Kanye West Needs 1,200 Extras for His Madison Square Garden Fashion Show
He'll pay you between $50 and $80 for the sold-out show, too
Kanye West proclaimed on Twitter yesterday that he’d sold out Madison Square Garden for his February 11 Yeezy Season 3 runway show, an event that’ll double as the premiere of his new, seemingly still untitled Yeezus follow-up.
Barring different stage setups and such, the Garden holds a maximum of 18,200 people — though ‘Ye seemed to indicate he’d blocked off at least some of the seating for aesthetic reasons relating to the show.
This morning, however, an email blast went out to select fans advertising the show’s need for paid extras — 1,200 of them, to be exact. “Yeezy Season 3 is launching a casting for up to 1200 paid extras to participate in the exclusive Yeezy Season 3 fashion show, and premiere of Kanye West’s upcoming album at Madison Square Garden on February 11th,” the email read, advertising payments between $50 and $80 for attending.
Here, according to the casting website, is what Kanye West extras should expect:
Extras will go through makeup & wardrobe and will be positioned throughout the floor of Madison Square Garden in a fully designed set. They will stand comfortably throughout the set and receive direction on their performance gestures.
There are currently three dates listed to which those interested can apply: a rehearsal for the show being held on Long Island (February 9 at 10:30 a.m.), a rehearsal at MSG itself (February 10 at 10:30 a.m.), and, of course, the actual show (February 11 at 10:00 a.m.).
