Sacramento, CA (PRWEB) December 06, 2013
One Direction tickets have been the hottest concert tickets in the country since the band’s “Up All Night” tour in 2011-12 and they’re coming back in 2014 in support of their new release Midnight Memories. The ticket professionals at Preferred Seating have put together a list of cities with the cheapest One Direction ticket prices already on sale on the secondary ticket market for the concerts that are sure sell outs when they go on sale to the general public this Saturday.
The market for One Direction tickets is huge and even the band sells tickets 13 rows from the stage at a face value of $950 each. And for each city on the tour the ticket prices vary widely for both the cheapest and some of the best One Direction seats as well. “I’ve been in the ticket business for over 26 years,” says Greg Cullen of Preferred Seating. “And I’ve never seen a band get so popular so fast. And it’s reflected in the demand for One Direction tickets.”
Fans that live near Gillette Stadium in Foxboro will have access to the best deal with ticket prices starting at just $61 and up per seat as of Thursday evening. That compares well with other venues hosting back to back One Direction concerts. Getting closer to the stage is another thing entirely with ticket prices climbing to $1000 or more per seat.
The average get in the door price for a One Direction ticket is about $80 but it climbs quickly. By the time the band hits Ford Field in Detroit the cheapest tickets are running $120 and up. And who would have thought that the most expensive tickets for One Direction are at the BOK Center in Tulsa where the starting price is $138. That’s because it’s the only indoor arena on a tour filled with stadiums with tens of thousands of seats being sold.
Here’s a list of the starting ticket prices for One Direction as of Thursday on the secondary ticket market. They are not likely to change much in the coming days since most of the tickets have already been sold and the 2014 One Direction tour doesn’t hit the road in the U.S. until August.
