When my wife worked for a label, they'd "paper the house" sometimes and it'd be like that. But it was usually for a second-tier act with a concert promoter who had booked them into too big a venue on a crummy night. They did this to create more of an impression of both ticket sales and enthusiasm down front so the reviewers would be kinder, which would translate to more ticket sales later on in the tour. Or at least that was the theory. So a Tuesday Wednesday Thursday might be, say, Toad the Wet Sprocket, Indigo Girls and Rodney Crowell. Mixed bag.
