Well, center rows were filled back to about ~25-35 rows back. Left and right sections had lots of rows completely empty (eg left - rows 5-15 or so almost completely empty.).
~27 seats across each section * ~35 rows filled in center = 840 people.
Left 27 * maybe 20-25 rows filled = 540-675 people. right, didn't look too close, perhaps the same.
= 1920-2190 people.
Then, people scattered here and there, latecomers that came after the show started, etc.
Max 3000-3500 or so.
Sad part was theater staff didn't allow or announce to have the fans move forward as far as they'd like just prior to show start to help create a 'packed' crowd up front for the girls. There were rows to the left, 5-7 rows! around rows 5-15, that were completely empty at the show start! No reason at all to make AKB girls suffer by having fans sitting farther back....
