David Archuleta appearance may bring record crowd to BYU Spectacular
By Whitney Hales on October 5, 2015.
BYU Spectacular producer Michael Handley said there has never been such a high demand for tickets to the show.
“There’s a particular interest in David Archuleta,” Handley said. “That’s triggered the terrific box office response.”
Tickets went on sale in July, but the demand was so high that the BYU Alumni Association added 1,800 seats to each show — 3,600 extra seats total. This is the first time that a performance of BYU Spectacular has ever sold out, according to Handley.
The additional tickets mean that the audience will fill half the seats of the Marriott Center for the performances on Thursday, Oct. 8 and Friday, Oct. 9.
Handley said BYU students and alumni are not the only ones excited about Archuleta’s performance in the BYU Spectacular.
