The Walter Kerr Theatre in New York. It’s a pretty amazing intimate venue to be seeing the Boss, with seating for just 960 people.
But it’ll also cost you a pretty penny.
Actually, forget that. Pennies don’t even exist anymore.
And just like pennies are gone, so are reasonable concert prices.
Springsteen’s Broadway show is sold out on Broadway’s official ticket-selling service where tickets were originally listed for between $200 and $875 each.
Ok, that’s not so bad, I mean, he is Bruce Springsteen….but…
enter the ticket bots – which are now selling tickets for up to 14 times their original price. A pair of Row A orchestra tickets are listed on StubHub for $12,500 each.
One cool thing – if you don’t have hundreds or thousands of dollars to spend on one night of entertainment – for every Springsteen performance, 26 tickets are sold for $75 through a lottery.
I’m gonna guess though, for lots of us, it’s just not in the cards to make a whirlwind trip to NYC. But here’s some pretty cool audio for your listening pleasure – dating back to a time when tickets were more affordable and the Boss and the E Street band were still in their early days – performing at New York’s Bottom Line in 1975 before Born to Run was released.
