When Paul McCartney announced five new North American dates on his Out There tour last week, it was easily predicted that it would be difficult to get tickets. An online pre-sale through McCartney’s website dramatically reduced the number of available tickets before they even went on sale to the general public. So when the remaining blocks of tickets became available on Ticketmaster Monday morning, they sold out in a matter of minutes.
According to a report by Forbes, the average price of tickets for this run of shows on the secondary market is currently over $400.
The Buffalo, NY show, scheduled for October 22nd at First Niagara Pavilion, has the most expensive prices on the run, currently at about $730 on the secondary market. It’s not surprising, considering the last time McCartney played in the Buffalo area was in 1964 with the Beatles.
McCartney will also make his first tour stop in State College, PA, where Forbes reports the secondary market ticket prices are averaging over $420.
The Out There tour set list features material from Paul’s most recent studio album NEW [Available on Amazon ↗], and music from throughout his entire career as a solo artist, member of Wings and, of course, the Beatles.
