(UPDATE 7/23/15) Launching its 2015 North American summer tour earlier this month was pop rock band R5. The Los Angeles-based group will play 19 more shows through the beginning of September and primarily hit amphitheaters across the U.S. Over the next six weeks, the average price for R5 tickets is $239.86 on the secondary market.
The band is seeing a massive ticket average due to the small inventory of tickets available on the resale market for each show. None of its 19 remaining gigs have more than 250 tickets available, which in turn has caused prices to rise. Three of R5’s upcoming shows own a ticket average above $400, including its top-priced stop onAugust 20 at Henderson Pavilion ($535.58 avg./$54 get-in).
The cheapest show of tour comes on July 26 at Arvest Bank Theatre at The Midland, where tickets average $61.76 and get-in price starts at $44. An August 22 show at Mesa Amphitheatre will be the second least expensive show with a $62.02 ticket average and $50 get-in price.
The tour will officially wrap on September 3 at the Mann Center for the Performing Arts in Philadelphia.
