Ticketmaster Addresses Bruce Springsteen Ticket Price Controversy
Ticketmaster has addressed the pricing structure controversy around tickets for Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band’s 2023 U.S. Tour that has led to some tickets being priced upwards of $5,000.
As reported by multiple outlets — including Variety and Asbury Park Press — the ticketing giant clarified the going price for most of the tickets being sold stating the average ticket price for Springsteen’s tour was $202 with the pricing range running from $59.50 to $399 before fees. About 88% of the tickets sold fall under this pricing.
As for the outrageously expensive tickets that led to all of the backlash, Ticketmaster says 11.8% of tickets fell under their “dynamic pricing” program where pricing fluctuates based on ticket demand, and only 1.3% of those tickets sold for over $1,000.
Neither Springsteen nor anyone from his camp has yet to comment about this issue.
