Kanye West Will Pay 1,200 Extras for Madison Square Garden ShowMusic News Kanye West
If you want between $50 and $80, a free meal and to be one of the first people to hear Kanye West’s still untitled new album then you’re in luck. Yeezy Season 3 needs 1,200 extras to appear in Kanye’s fashion show and album premiere at Madison Square Garden on Feb. 11.
The announcement came via an email blast sent to select fans and the casting site stipulates that, ”[e]xtras 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.”
The show is currently sold out for fans, but there are three listed dates to which extras 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.).
