Yanks winning the Jay-Z/Eminem ticket prices battle

By

When the Yankees hit the road next week, Yankee Stadium won’t remain empty. Instead, on Monday, September 13 and Tuesday, September 14, Jay-Z and Eminem will bring their concert to the stadium. Hip hop fans are eagerly anticipating these shows, and many Yankee fans will get to see Jay-Z perform “Empire State of Mind” in the Bronx again. Who doesn’t love the de facto 2009 playoffs anthem?

So far, the reviews out of Detroit have been strong. B.o.B. is opening up for the co-headliners, and last night, Dr. Dre, Drake, 50 Cent, and Young Jeezy made guest appearances. Of course, RAB Tickets and TiqIQ have some seats for those still looking to grab a spot at the show.

As the graph above shows, the ticket prices in New York, a city not facing a foreclosure crisis and economic death, are far outpacing those in Detroit, and the secondary market is insane right now as well. For the Sept. 13 show, tickets in the 400 section behind home plate are averaging $267 while tickets in the 300s sections for the Sept. 14 show are going for an average of $245. Tuesday, it seems, is the best bet.

Meanwhile, baseball remains on everyone’s minds this weekend, and the Blue Jays, while a popular draw, aren’t burning down the house. Tickets for this series are going for below the season average of $95, but the Saturday and Sunday games, when sunny weather and cooler temperatures sweep through the area in the wake of Hurricane Earl, aren’t exactly cheap. As always, RAB Tickets has all the best seats for this weekend’s games.

    Tickets are more expensive in New York over Detroit… Really.

    Is this just an ad for TiqIQ?

    At least label it sponsored post or something.

      I CAN’T believe that tickets are selling for less money is a city/region that has been epically decimated by loss of jobs!

      Is this just an ad for TiqIQ?

      We clearly announced our partnership with TiqIQ when we unveiled it. We’ve been running these posts every week and before every home series. It’s a way for us to promote something that makes us money. It’s not a sponsored post; it’s a promotional tool. That’s the way it is. Still got a beef with it?

    Ticket prices are more expensive in New York (home of Wall Street) than Detroit (home of a whole lot of empty factories)? Shocking…
