But no. As it turns out, tickets to see Lady Gaga have hit (presumably) an all-time low, with tickets to the artRAVE being sold in the secondary market at a staggering 90% off face value. According to Forbes, there were tickets available for tonight's show in Barcelona for as little as $4.70.
Yes, you read that right: $4.70. To see a full-length concert from one of pop music's biggest
In a different article, Forbes states that the tickets for Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett's shows are so high in demand that second-hand tickets are available for the average price of $1000 (for the NYE show)... but that's a bit misleading.
If you actually go to Stubhub, you'll see that there are quite a few tickets in the somewhat reasonable ~$200-300 range. Sure, there's a whole page of tickets that are up for a few grand each, but no one is going to pay that. Not when the exact same tickets are available for $200. Scalpers know to falsely inflate the numbers until the very last minute - and if prices are already dropping down from a couple thousand dollars to a couple hundred dollars, it makes you wonder just how in demand the tickets really are.
No matter how you look at it though, you can clearly see that there is a much bigger demand for the Tony+Gaga duo than there is for Gaga on her own.
Kind of makes you wonder who exactly is the one in demand, doesn't it?
