Shocking audiences with its deliberately jarring “horrorcore” style, Insane Clown Posse has managed to thrive despite an initially hostile reaction. The fast rate at which Insane Clown Posse tickets are currently sold surprises those who thought the two “wicked clowns” Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope would never succeed. Insane Clown Posse carved a niche in an industry with no precedent for the duo’s unusual combination of hip hop beats with rapping and death metal vocals. Although initially low when Insane Clown Posse first released music in the early 1990’s, ICP ticket sales have skyrocketed, and the group’s New Year’s Eve 2011 show is the latest performance to boast over 1,000 Insane Clown Posse ticket sales.
Insane Clown Posse got its start in Detroit, Michigan in the early 1990s. Joseph Bruce (“Violent J”) and Joseph Utsler (“Shaggy 2 Dope”) met in the late 1980s when they wrestled in self-built backyard rings. Influenced by their difficult home situations and hip-hop rappers such as the Beastie Boys, the two started rapping, releasing a single in 1989, “Party at the Top of the Hill,” which was a collaborative effort among Bruce, Utsler, and Utsler’s brother John. In late 1991, the group decided to distinguish themselves from other rappers by incorporating acid rap - a blend of rap and hard rock. Their new sound and characteristic clown makeup differentiated Insane Clown Posse from other artists, and it wasn’t long before the duo developed a dedicated fan base, called "Juggalos." Today, Insane Clown Posse tickets are popular because of the duo’s impressively elaborate shows that integrate their “horrorcore” rapping with wrestling, theatrics and circus acts.
