Forbes: Tickets For Joint Jay-Z And Beyonce Shows 44% More Expensive Than Individual Tours

Earlier this month we previewed Jay-Z and Beyonce tickets for their upcoming On The Run tour. Yesterday, we took that data and looked at other tours including these two hip-hop artists, including their solo tours and joint tours such as Jay-Z's with Eminem and Justin Timberlake. Here's some of that article:

With an average ticket price of $342.67 on the secondary market, tickets for Jay-Z & Beyoncé: On the Run are 90.16% higher than prices for Jay-Z’s solo Magna Carta tour last fall, when Jay-Z tickets were $180.20 on average. They are also 16.55% higher than tickets for Beyoncé’s Mrs. Carter Show world tour from last year, when Beyoncé tickets were priced at $294.01 on average.

Jay-Z has toured with industry giants including Eminem and Justin Timberlake, but neither has been as big of a draw as his wife. When Jay-Z toured with Eminem, tickets averaged $279.50, which is 16.55% below the current rate for Jay-Z and Beyoncé tickets. When Jay-Z toured with Justin Timberlake, tickets averaged $187.98, or 82.29% below the current rate to see music’s ultimate power couple in concert.

But it’s not just past co-headlining tours they are beating. Jay-Z and Beyoncé On the Run tickets are also priced at 51.39% higher than Eminem and Rihanna tickets for their upcoming Eminem and Rihanna: Monster Tour — which kicks off later this year and is currently priced at an average of $226.35 on the secondary market. That three-city tour features six dates at major U.S. stadiums in August including the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California, MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, and Detroit’s Comerica Park.

As you can see, they're better off together. To read the rest of the article, click here.
