Tonight, Kanye West is holding what is assumed to be the final “Donda” album listening event. This will be held inside Solider Field, in his hometown of Chicago. The previous two were held inside Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium, over the past month.
Kanye lived inside the Benz, and it’s unclear if he’s doing the same in Chicago. Ahead of the event tonight though, it’s been revealed just now well the Donda listening events in Atlanta did.
According to a report by Billboard, each Donda listening event in Atlanta grossed between $1.5-2.7 million. In the second event at the Benz, $7 million was accumulated, with merchandise sales.
Tonight, this listening event will be streamed on Apple Music again. Millions of dollars in ticket sales are also expected to be totaled, in addition to the merchandise sales, which have since been going on to be resold for higher prices, on marketplaces such as eBay.
The big question will also he if Donda will actually be released this time. It was initially supposed to be out on July 23, then August 6. Collabs that have been played at these events include songs with Jay Z, The Weeknd, Lil Baby, The Lox, Roddy Ricch, Lil Durk, and more.
