Thank you @WWEUniverse, especially the HOT, sold out crowd at @NYCBLive, all the people in the office and the crew behind the scenes, and of course, the @WWE Superstars who TORE THE HOUSE DOWN last night! You are the change we want to see in the world! #WWEEvolution

Both Michael Cole and Renee Young mentioned during the Evolution PPV that the event was sold out but unlike other events, the commentary team didn’t mention the number of attendance.
Later fans in attendance posted some photos of the event from their Twitter accounts which reveal that the show wasn’t actually sold out as claimed.
The photos as seen below reveal that there were many empty seats in the arena and from the looks of it, it appears that the company was only able to sell out about 70% tickets for the show:
