Paul McCartney Hits Detroit and Buffalo This Week
October 20, 2015
Sir Paul McCartney is out there again. Just one week after revving up the latest leg of his critically-acclaimed "Out There" Tour, the former Beatle is slated to play his final two scheduled shows in Detroit and Buffalo this week. McCartney makes stops at Joe Louis Arena Wednesday and First Niagara Center Thursday.
Over those two shows the average secondary market price for Paul McCartney tickets on TicketIQ is $370.05. His Detroit gig currently owns an average price of $302.26 with a get-in price of $101. His stop in Buffalo is generating significantly higher demand, with tickets averaging $467.36 and get-in price starting at $221.
While McCartney has played in Detroit countless times throughout his illustrious career, he is set to play his first-ever show in Buffalo this week, which is likely the reason behind the ticket price surge. The "Out There" Tour caps a 2 1/2-year, 91-show run that began back in May of 2013.
