(UPDATE 5/4/15) English rock outfit Muse will play its highly anticipated show at Webster Hall in New York City this Friday. The band announced the performance just two weeks ago as a promotion for Drones, its upcoming seventh studio album. The Webster Hall show sold out in minutes, and the small inventory of tickets that exist on the secondary market have seen prices balloon over face value.
According to TicketIQ, the average price for Muse tickets to their NYC show is $704.55. The cheapest available ticket is currently priced at $560. Drones is scheduled for release on June 5.
Muse Announces NY and LA Shows Ahead of Album Release, Sell Out in Minutes
(UPDATE 4/22) Rock trio Muse is slated to release their upcoming seventh studio album Drones on June 5, and they’ve announce a pair of shows on the country’s coasts. The two dates, set to be held in New York City and Los Angeles in May, will be played in smaller venues and offer fans a more intimate experience for fans lucky enough to get their hands on tickets.
The NYC show is scheduled for May 8 at Webster Hall’s Grand Ballroom. Tickets for that select show were made available via Ticketweb today (4/22) and have already sold out. The band is also set to play the iHeartRadio Theatre on May 9, but passes are only available for Muse fan club members and through iHeartRadio.
The LA show will be played on May 15 at The Mayan. Like the NYC show, tickets also sold out in minutes after going on sale today. As they begin to trickle into the secondary market, fans can expect to pay big premiums for the two smaller-sized shows.
