The Most Expensive Resale Ticket to See Beyonce in New Orleans Will Blow Your Mind
Beyonce's next tour stop is in New Orleans, Louisiana Wednesday night. With 56 shows and two to go she has raked in $461 million dollars with her 'Renaissance World Tour'. While most fans secured their tickets during pre-sale, others wait until the day of the concert to snag tickets on the resale market.
The idea behind waiting until the day of the concert to pull the trigger on tickets is that the ticket sellers's window to sell starts to close once the 24-hour mark hits. Fans hold out hope that the prices will drop as it gets closer to show time and they can hopefully get a better deal than people who bought tickets earlier. This method of buying tickets can totally work in some situations but not when we are talking about one of the music industry's biggest stars who is recognized worldwide.
For anyone looking to score discounted tickets to the Beyonce concert in New Orleans last minute, we hate to break it to you, but the tickets being resold are all overpriced. And we mean way overpriced. You could buy a home with the cost of some of these tickets.
Out of curiosity, we Googled "Beyonce tickets New Orleans" and as soon as we clicked on the Ticketmaster website we were warned that the "resale ticket prices may exceed face value" and they weren't lying.
The fees alone are over $3,000 on this set of nosebleed seats. What if we told you that these aren't even the most expensive tickets listed for sale? WVUE shared this image on their Facebook page and we are still in shock that someone really listed these tickets for six figures
The most comical part is that the $115,900 excludes service fees. Now just because these are listed for sale doesn't mean anyone will actually buy them. We hope not anyway. Just clicking through to the purchase screen had us sweating.
