I wasn't there, but the videos were amazing. Oculus and all the other video/technical effects and the setup of SOFI makes it an incredible concert venue.


Looks like they only sold tickets up to the 200 level and left everything above that empty. If you go to about 1:45 on the video you can see the 300, 400 and 500 levels didn't have people.

The Raiders also opened their stadium with an EDM concert (Illenium) and sold it out. But they also "papered" the place with cheap $19 tickets to fill it. The fact that SoFi wasn't full isn't a Rams issue. Seems like it was the promoter that made the decision to only sell tickets for the lower half of the stadium.

From a construction aspect we now know the building can hold up to an EDM event

I'm sure the open design of SoFi helped with the (very) few people at the Kaskade concert that weren't partaking of the herb.

Like I've said before one of the flaws of the air supported roof domes was the air flow because they had to keep a higher internal pressure to keep it inflated. I saw Pink Floyd at the old RCA Dome in Indianapolis and it was a 60,000 person hot box that just recirculated the smoke for 3 hours.
