Yesterday we spoke about the overall top events coming to "the world's most famous arena". Now, we look at just the top 5 NYC Concerts tickets at Madison Square Garden in 2014.
The World’s Most Famous Arena tends to hold that nickname by getting some of the biggest acts in music to stop by on their tours. 2014 is no different and the top shows of the year have some high prices for Madison Square Garden concert tickets. The Garden hosts a wide variety of musical genres with the biggest acts of each genre performing. This year, the five most expensive shows on the secondary market range all over the musical map.
1) 9/12/14: Luke Bryan, Lee Brice & Cole Swindell | Avg. Price: $947 | Get-in Price: $87
Luke Bryan is one of the biggest names in country music and he easily has the most expensive single event at MSG scheduled this year. Tickets are averaging just under $1,000, but have a huge price range with a starting price below $100.
2) 3/6/14: Sting & Paul Simon | Avg. Price: $508 | Get-in Price: $144
There might not possibly be two bigger icons in music to play together in an arena like the Garden. The two will play one set together alternating back and forth between whose songs are played. The dream combination could see prices go up as the March show date approaches.
3) 6/21/14: Billy Joel | Avg. Price: $472 | Get-in Price: $97
Billy Joel is taking a residency at MSG, playing one show per month through September. The June show is the most expensive on average with an average price just below $500. Fans who miss out on this date will luckily have other opportunities to see Joel in concert.
4) 3/21/14: Billy Joel | Avg. Price: $468 | Get-in Price: $151
The March show is less expensive than June on average, but has a higher get-in price. The end of March concert will be the the third of Joel’s nine scheduled appearances at MSG.
5) 2/19/14: Justin Timberlake | Avg. Price: $459 | Get-in Price: $175
Justin Timberlake has been touring all over the world since the release of both volumes of The 20/20 Experience. As Timberlake winds down the World Tour, he will make one last stop in New York City in February. The average price may only be the fifth highest on this list, but the get-in price is the highest for any of the concerts in 2014.
Madison Square Garden has hosted some big events and 2014 will be no different. Throughout the year as more events are announced, there’s sure to be additions to this list. When looking to a part of some of the best events in the world, there’s no place better than the Garden.
