Since completing his wildly successful sitcom, Seinfeld has toured the US extensively and says that his long delay in playing in the UK is not a slight.
“I’ve been very busy here in the States and I just wasn’t even aware that there was an audience [in the UK] that really wanted me to come back until we spoke to a promoter who was very confident,” he said to the Guardian.
Seinfeld will head over to Europe mid year and play one night in London on June 3, at the O2 arena and then to Oslo.
For some reason, Seinfeld has apologized to fans in the U.K. for the high cost of tickets for his show, insisting he would be complaining to promoters about the $155 (£103) price tag.
According to Britain’s Guardian newspaper, Seinfeld said, “I’m terribly, terribly sorry. I really had to let the English promoter guide us in that, because I don’t know that market that well. So I’m going to complain to him.”
One has to wonder why he is concerned about the UK prices when a quick check of online ticket vendor Stub Hub is selling tickets for his US appearances from $83 (Clearwater, FL on January 8, 2011) to $489 (the MGM Grand in Mashantucket, CT on May 13, 2011). Who will complain for us?
