Seinfeld Sales Brisk At Academy of Music

Jerry Seinfeld's two June 20 shows at the Academy of Music sold more than half the house yesterday just on pre-sale - that is, tickets made available only to subscribers and others signed up for special offers. Tickets go on sale to the general public today, so if you want to hear the comedian, now's the time to act. The shows represent good financial news for the Kimmel Center. Even taking into account Seinfeld's fees, the Kimmel will make money if sales go well, a spokesman said. Seems likely, given yesterday's big response.

Update: Ticket Philadelphia says both shows pretty much sold out by 11:30 a.m., and at 4:15 only scattered single tickets remained.
