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.

My wife and I will travel to see our favorite, The Flaming Lips and I usually pull the VIP tickets so we can get to the front. Someone put this Yoshimi performance on youtube I'm the guy getting hugged by Wayne Coyne lol... happens about 32 seconds in.

Nice. I only saw The Flaming Lips once in 2004, but it was memorable b/c it was the debut of the giant bubble that Wayne Coyne used to perform in (and recently got married in).
