Billy Joel may have recently announced an open-ended concert run at Madison Square Garden in 2014, but he’s going to be across the river to usher in the new year at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Billy Joel tickets for this one show, featuring Ben Folds as the opener, at the Barclays Center will be the most expensive show one could see to ring in 2014. The average price to ring in the new year with Billy Joel is $477. (click here to read more on Billy Joel tickets for his upcoming residency at Madison Square Garden).
The New Year’s Eve show is a bargain when compared to the run Joel will have at MSG. The average price for the nine shows currently scheduled at the Garden starting in late January is $579.
Joel is the biggest show of the holiday and is in a price category. For those looking for New Year’s Eve concerts, Britney Spears tickets for her show in Las Vegas is the second most expensive option. This show is part of Spears’ run at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino that feature shows more frequently than Joel’s upcoming Garden run.
The reason Joel is playing in Brooklyn and not the Garden is Phish’s longstanding New Year’s eve residency at Madison Square Garden. Phish tickets are just about half the price of Joel’s Brooklyn show.
Jill Scott will also be playing a show at Radio City Music Hall, which build upon New York City’s almost endless options for New Year’s Eve shows. Las Vegas, which also includes a Maroon 5 concert, is close behind for options.
For those looking for a show, but not a concert, getting some The Book of Mormon tickets, would be the most expensive for the musical playing in both New York and San Francisco.
