George Strait tickets may sell like hotcakes but for his upcoming concerts ticket brokers are selling his best seats at a bargain. You can find great seats for the George Strait and Reba McEntire concerts at close or below the Ticketmaster face value, with the service charges.
The economy has taken its toll on many veteran concert acts this year, sparing some of the new acts such as Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber but others have seen ticket sales plummet and resell tickets going below the face value. Now you can get a better seat from a ticket broker for the same price or not much above the face value for some concerts such as the George Strait and Reba concerts.
As an example you can find tickets for George Strait from Ticketmaster at the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio in section 107 row U running $105 per seat, but through Preferredseat.com you can find seats in section 107 row N at $106 each, or Floor 7 Row N at $104 per seat. The best seats are still not that much above the face value compared with many other concerts.
You can find similar discount ticket deals for other George Strait concerts as well. The Rupp Arena in Lexington, Kentucky and Colonial Life Arena in Columbia, South Carolina have similar discount ticket deals, but the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee has some pretty high ticket prices.
The bottom line is you will not always find the cheapest tickets for concerts from Ticketmaster. You can find some great ticket deals from ticket brokers, even if you are paying a bit more than the face value; you’re getting a much better seat than what’s available from Ticketmaster.
