This summer will most likely be an entertaining one, in regards to the number of tours coming to town. But if you plan on seeing every concert this summer, you better take an extra shift at your job and start saving now. The secondary ticket selling website TiqIQ gave the average price of concerts this summer, and it is costly.
Topping the list is the King and Queen, Jay Z and Beyonce. Their On The Run tour begins in the end of June and the average ticket price is around $306. Seems like a lot of money, but so worth as you’re paying to see two superstars. This is a slight increase for Beyonce whose Mrs. Carter World Tour had an average ticket price of $294.
Surprisingly the second most expensive concert is Lana Del Rey with an average price of $270. I guess singing at Kim and Kanye’s wedding really helps raise ticket prices.
Lana somehow beat both Katy Perry and Lady Gaga. Tickets for the MMVA nominee‘s Prismatic Tour sell for an average of $260 while Lady Gaga’s Art Rave charges an average of $230. One Direction’s Where We Are tour is selling for an average of $240. And Miley Cyrus’s Bangerz tickets sell for an average of $195, which seems reasonable in comparison.
Seeing all these concerts will definitely break the bank, but can you really risk not seeing Jay and Bey perform together or fangirl over One Direction?
