ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany city officials said they had a great turnout for the Katt Williams show at the Civic Center on July 29.
Albany Public Information Officer Monique Broughton Knight said they sold a little over 1,600 tickets, and about 1,800 people attended.
Knight said this helps them gauge what kind of events will do well at the civic center, and now they hope to see promoters bring in more comedy acts since Katt Williams did well.
"We feel we'll have an opportunity to book a lot more shows, more promoters come in and throw shows. Just with that turnout being able to use those numbers and kind of gauge what kind of entertainment the community is looking for as far as entertainment," explained Knight.
Vickie Winans will perform at the Civic Center on Sunday, August 6, at 4:30 p.m.
