It's that time of the year again when the weather's getting warmer and the concert calendar is filling up. Concert tickets are getting crazy expensive these days. When a concert goes on sale it's like the Hunger Games trying to buy tickets (Garth Brooks is a prime example). If you don't get tickets to a show that means you have to buy them through a reseller and we know how bad the fees are on those. SeatGeek looked at how much second-hand tickets cost in America's 50 biggest cities.
The lowest is in Norfolk, Virginia, where the average ticket costs $85. Here are the ten most expensive cities to go see a concert:
1. Las Vegas, $206 per ticket. The SeatGeek study last year found Vegas also has more concerts per capita than any other city.
2. San Jose, $167.
3. Miami, $166.
4. San Antonio, $159.
5. Dallas, $158.
6. New York, $154.
7. New Orleans, $145.
8. Houston, $142.
9. Los Angeles, $140.
10. Chicago, also $140. We haven't seen an average ticket price anywhere. But out of the 50 cities they looked at, the median price was $123 per ticket.
Minneapolis is the 18th most expensive city to see a concert at $129. You can see the full list on Thrillist HERE
