UPDATE: Noting that ticket prices for this event seem surprisingly reasonable, we checked in with the Circuit of Americas to find out how much music fans would actually get from the music festival.
"They will average 60-70 minutes for the headliners. Kanye’s currently down to perform 75 minutes," Julie Loignon, Vice President of Public & Media Relations for COTA said via email.
Given what festival and big-name show tickets are going for these days, $59 for over an hour of Kanye West (assuming he plays on Saturday) is not a bad deal at all.
