According to the Forbes official website, several venues of One Direction’s Take Me Home shows charged an average of over $500 per ticket, some even reaching over $1000 for the average price!
The Take Me Home tickets proved to be more in demand than tickets for any other performer at the time, including Beyonce, the Rolling Stones, Justin Timberlake, and Justin Bieber.
However, the prices for the 2014 Where We Are tour are significantly lower. In fact, the average ticket is 34% less expensive.
The Where We Are tour will include only about half the concerts of the previous tour, although 1D will be performing mostly in gigantic stadiums, so there will be about equal amounts of tickets sold.
So why are the prices dropping?
Forbes predicts that the band’s management lowered the prices because that’s what the stereotypical boy band would do at this time.
However, we find it hard to believe that the stadiums will not sell out.
As we’re sure you’ve all seen, “This Is Us” shows the boys performing in Foro Sol Stadium in Mexico City, which holds fifty-five thousand people. Just imagine every 2014 One Direction show being filled with close to that many fans.
If ticket prices indeed continue to drop, it probably won’t affect the band too much, as they will profit from the new perfume, book, and DVD release, especially with the Christmas holiday coming up.
In addition, the lower prices will hopefully allow even more directioners to see them live.
