Vertigo vs. Innocence prices
« on: January 04, 2015, 08:43:16 AM »
Just outta curiosity, how do the prices compare?  Were they cheaper during Vertigo, or the same?  I had lower level seating that time and forgot how much I paid.  Does anybody recall the specific seating chart prices in the US for Vertigo?

I've been looking for a Vertigo seating chart as well, mainly to see which end of the arena the stage was at. I can't find anything, kinda weird considering how big of a tour Vertigo was.

This matches with what I remembered from back then:

"Conservative estimates put the Vertigo tour's gross potential at $225 ... Ticket prices will average $90, with $49.50 at the low end and $165 at the high end."

Found several old TM emails in my inbox.  Paid $ 176.80 with fees for lower level seat in Miami.  GA in Washinton was $64 with fees.

Generally speaking, I think the highest price seats nearly doubled and the higher price range crept into more of the seating.  There were fewer cheap seats this time around and I'm guessing fewer GA's, considering the stage designs. There were more Red Zone/VIP seats this time around....probably trying to make up for cheap GA's and upper deck seating.

Any direct comparisons would have to factor in the inflation rate over the last decade, which is probably 2-3% per year. 

I think it's a bit high, even considering the market, inflation, etc.   It shouldn't cost nearly $1000 (for the best seats) for someone to take a date to a rock concert.  I know you can get cheaper seats or GA but those are in the highest demand and difficult to get.  I know a few people who feel a bit uneasy about what they shelled out for tickets (of course, it's a choice).  I'm sure the guilt will be fully gone by concert time.

Maybe next tour, TM should implement a payment plan option.
