Before embarking on the ‘ARTPOP Ball’ World Tour, Lady Gaga took the stage for the final set of shows at New York City’s storied Roseland Ballroom. The last of which took place Monday night, officially closing down the venue. Lady Gaga received positive reviews for all seven shows she played over the past week and a half and her upcoming tour has seen a benefit. The tour doesn’t start until May 4, but the average price for Lady Gaga ‘ARTPOP Ball’ tickets on the secondary market have gone up 5.3% for ‘ARTPOP Ball’ since the start of the Roseland run.
The second date of the tour, April 6 at Philips Arena has seen one of the biggest increases over the past week at 9%. Lady Gaga Atlanta tickets have an average price of $247.96, 4.4% above the average tour price of $237.44. As the average price has risen above average for this date, the get-in price of $50 has remained on par with the rest of the tour.
Lady Gaga’s return to New York on May 13, this time at Madison Square Garden, is one of the more expensive concerts on the tour. Lady Gaga Madison Square Garden tickets have an average price of $338.81, 42.6% above the tour average, but still cheaper than the average price for the first night at Roseland. The price at The Garden trails only the July 19 concert at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas that has an average secondary market price of $339.21. The get-in price for MSG is significantly higher, though, $82 compared to Las Vegas’ $50.
One of the least expensive dates in a major city comes June 30 at the TD Garden. Lady Gaga Boston tickets are 15.6% below the tour average with an average price of $200.28. The get-in price still remains slightly higher than the tour average at $57. Chicago sees the opposite problem when the tour rolls into the United Center on July 11. The average price of Lady Gaga TD Garden tickets is $327.14, but the get-in price is just a tour average $49.
The most interesting price shift across the tour occurs with two shows in Los Angeles. Lady Gaga will be playing back-to-back nights at the Staples Center on July 21 and 22. The average price for Lady Gaga Staples Center tickets for the first night is well above the tour average at $331.10 with a $52 get-in price. The first night is one of the most expensive of all dates, but the next night has just a $189.09 average price, 20% below the tour average, and an above average $57 get-in price. The July 22 show was added to the schedule after the initial demand for the first Staples Center show, allowing fans who missed out on the first show to grab a better deal on the second show. Staples Center is the only venue that will host back-to-back nights on the tour. It’s likely the prices for both concerts will even out as the dates get closer.
Lady Gaga won’t be playing any more club-like venues for the upcoming dates, but her performances at Roseland have added interest to her upcoming arena performances.
When will Angela Cheng?
