Concert Ticket Prices

Wondering if you're getting ripped off when you buy a ticket to one of the hottest tours of the year? Compare what you paid to what Pollstar, the industry trade magazine, says is what Americans paid on average for the top 100 tours last year.

The average ticket price for the top 100 tours in 2006 was $61.45 (up 8 percent from the average ticket price of $56.88 in 2005).

Furthermore, North American concert ticket prices totaled $3.6 billion in 2006, according to Pollstar. That's an increase of 16 percent over 2005 sales.
