Kanye West Is Looking for 1,200 Extras for His Album Premiere and Fashion Show at MSG
Kanye West has something big in store for the debut of his new album at Madison Square Garden next week -- big enough to require the need of 1,200 extras.
As previously reported, West is going all out for his still untitled album (formerly known as Waves) and will be premiering it for the first time in its entirety at Madison Square Garden. At the same time, he will be debuting his Yeezy Season 3 line during New York Fashion Week.
On Friday (Feb. 5), an email blast was sent out to selected fans who were asked to participate in the show and be paid for it. “Yeezy Season 3 is launching a casting for up to 1200 paid extras to participate in the exclusive Yeezy Season 3 fashion show, and premiere of Kanye West’s upcoming album at Madison Square Garden on February 11th,” the email read. The opportunity offers pay between $50 to $80 to those that make the cut.
According to the casting website, interested parties should be ready to wear make up and have comfortable shoes. "Extras will go through makeup & wardrobe and will be positioned throughout the floor of Madison Square Garden in a fully designed set. They will stand comfortably throughout the set and receive direction on their performance gestures," the description reads.
Those interested have three opportunities to apply; Long Island (Feb. 9 at 10:30 AM), a rehearsal at MSG (Feb. 10 at 10:30 AM), and, the actual show (Feb. 11 at 10:00 AM). Check here for full details.
