Fleetwood Mac’s On With The Show Tour was 2014’s most expensive tour on the secondary market. With the flip of a calendar into the New Year, it’ll remain as the top-priced tour in 2015 amidst a sea of music’s biggest pop acts and legendary bands.
The average price for Fleetwood Mac tickets on TiqIQ across the iconic band’s final 40 North American shows from January through April is $307.38, serving as the only tour this year that will trump the $300 ticket average on the secondary market. Pop juggernauts Maroon 5 and Taylor Swift will see the second and third most expensive tour averages in 2015, respectively. At $279.42, Maroon 5 tickets on the band’s V Tour are 6.3% more expensive than Taylor Swift tickets on the 1989 Tour, which average at $262.85.
Other pop acts that will own big tour averages on the secondary market are One Direction, Iggy Azalea and newcomers 5 Seconds of Summer, Ariana Grande and Meghan Trainor. 5SOS, Grande and Trainor will all embark on their first-ever headlining tours, where ticket demand remains high after all three artists catapulted to the top of the charts last year.
While radio stations gave such pop artists massive exposure in 2014, the secondary market is still hot for more established acts, including U2, Bob Seger and The Who. U2 tickets to the iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE World Tour average at $256.93 on TiqIQ while The Who Turns 50! Tour’s final stretch of North American dates in April and May has given the band a $250.59 average on the secondary market.
Just two months after releasing Sonic Highways, the Foo Fighters will round off this year’s top-priced tours when their eponymously named tour hits the U.S. and Canada in July. The average secondary price for Foo Fighters tickets over the band’s 34 dates from July to October is $164.12. Notably, the Seattle-based band will play shows at Citi Field in New York, Fenway Park in Boston and Chicago’s Wrigley Field along the way. Premium seating at Fenway Park for the Foo Fighters show will feature two dedicated servers for your 20-25 guests, while you'll be able to buy a private Wrigley Field suite and receive exclusive luxury catering and beverage packages for the show.
2015 will be jam-packed with major label talent burning rubber across North America. With Fleetwood Mac again posting the top-priced tour on the secondary market, the ageless rockers have found a way to turn back the clock and put on one of the year’s most sought after shows nearly 50 years after first forming.
