Cheap concert tickets are still available for many concerts this year in the US and Europe in spite of the many artists switching over to paperless tickets. Though Ticketmaster and Live Nation would have you believe that the paperless tickets are for the fans, the resell restriction prevents the ticket price from ever falling below the face value.
Many concert tickets have fallen in price from the hefty price tags that have been placed on the “concert experience” as fans react in many markets and stay home. In Europe stars like Whitney Houston, Rhianna and John Mayer have had their ticket prices selling for less than face value on the secondary ticket market as reported by the guardian.co.uk. Because they are not paperless tickets fans can buy and sell them for whatever the market will bear, even for less than face value where it’s apparent they were overpriced.
In the US some of the most popular concert tours have cheap ticket prices as the shows have drawn near. Cheap Taylor Swift tickets are currently available for her concert at the Rupp Arena this Thursday and ticket prices are as low as $15 each and floor seats in the 7th row are running a low $88 each.
It is becoming apparent to many fans that the market price for concert tickets has gotten out of hand and unfortunately Live Nation and Ticketmaster’s plan to use paperless tickets has less to do with doing the fans a favor and more to control the market price of concert tickets. Cheap concert tickets will only be available if tickets are allowed to be freely resold so that the supply and demand will drive the price of concert tickets, not corporate greed.
You can find and buy cheap concert tickets for all concert tours with no hidden service charges and fees.
