There was June, 2001; followed by May, 2003; February, 2005; March, 2007; and October, 2009. They have all been sold-out shows – and most years, he’s had to tack on a second show just to keep up with the ticket demand. And those shows have been sell-outs, too.
Heck, way back in May 1993, Seinfeld sold-out two shows at the Palace in just two and a half hours.
Seinfeld returns to the Palace once again at 7pm on Friday night – tix are $48, $63 and $78 – but just once. No second show. It seems that the ticket demand has somewhat diminished in the years since his smash hit “Seinfeld” sit-com wrapped up its network run.
But here’s a little pop quiz to ponder: Who remembers Seinfeld’s Albany debut?
