(UPDATE 1/8/16) The end is near for Madonna's "Rebel Heart" Tour, which braces for one more North American run through January. The 57-year-old singer is slated to play eight shows between January 10 and 24, and the average price for Madonna tickets on TicketIQ over that time is $277.13.
Below is a complete price breakdown of the final leg of shows, detailing the average price and cheapest ticket available to each date:
Nearly One Month In, Madonna ‘Rebel Heart’ Tour Remains One of Fall’s Hottest Tours(UPDATE 9/28/15) Hampered by initial claims that it was underselling at many dates, Madonna’s “Rebel Heart” Tour has proved to be quite the opposite over its first three weeks of life. The iconic singer is set to gross an estimated $200 million over her five-leg jaunt through March of next year, with several arenas receiving back-to-back shows due to overwhelming ticket demand. On top of that, Madonna tickets are still generating massive prices on the secondary market as well.
According to TicketIQ the average price for Madonna tickets is $293.81, marking a .4% climb from last Monday’s average of $292.55. With 15 shows remaining on her first North American leg, seven of those gigs are averaging above $300 on the secondary market. In fact, her October 24 show at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas is among the most expensive shows of the year, averaging $886.24 and get-in price starting at $213.
Conversely, Madonna’s cheapest show comes on October 12 at Rexall Place in Edmonton. That show owns a median price of $139.19 and the cheapest ticket available is listed for $35. Only three other shows will average below $200 –October 1 at Joe Louis Arena ($145 avg.), October 8 at Xcel Energy Center ($172.10 avg.) and October 14 at Rogers Arena ($185.30 avg.).
A European leg in November and December separates the “Material Girl” singer from her second and final North American stretch in January. Over her seven U.S. shows that month, tickets are currently averaging $305.20 on the secondary market.
With ‘Rebel Heart’ World Tour Underway, Madonna Tickets Nearing $300 on Secondary Market
(UPDATE 9/21/15) Consider the Material Girl one of the hottest touring acts of the fall. The ageless Madonna is currently gallivanting across North America on her “Rebel Heart” Tour, which continues its first U.S. and Canadian leg through the end of October.
Expect to pay big if planning to attend an upcoming gig, however, as Madonna’s continental trek is the second most expensive tour on the secondary market this fall. According to TicketIQ the average secondary market price for Madonna tickets is $292.55. That is trumped only by Taylor Swift’s “1989” World Tour, which is averaging $401.90 across its remaining 19 shows through the end of next month.
Much of Madonna’s secondary market success is being generated by top-priced shows at the MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas on October 24, The Forum in Los Angeles on October 27 and Toronto’s Air Canada Centre on October 6. Each of those gigs are averaging over $400 on TicketIQ, with the Sin City show owning a whopping $877.90 average and $178 get-in price.
Even Madonna’s most affordable shows are finding big secondary market ticket demand. Her October 12 show at Rexall Place in Edmonton currently averages $142.35. That is still more expensive than what pop newcomers like Ariana Grande ($129.22 avg.) and Nick Jonas ($127.94) are averaging across the entire respective tours. It pays to be the Queen, and Madonna is seeing just that in terms of secondary market ticket demand.
Reports initially stated that Madonna’s tour was underselling, but with the addition of several second shows in cities across the U.S. and Canada it appears that demand is overwhelmingly high to see the Queen of Pop from her throne on the stage this fall. Madonna returns to North America for a second leg in January following a European jaunt between November and December. Asia and Oceania legs will wind the tour down in February and March.
Amy Schumer Opening For Madonna During New York Shows
(UPDATE 6/19/15) Madonna will be inviting a surprising opener for her New York City dates on the Rebel Heart Tour. The singer will not be joined by another music artist, but a comedian, Amy Schumer. Schumer has taken off over the past couple of years, from increasing popularity in her standup, her Comedy Central show, Inside Amy Schumer, and an upcoming movie she both wrote and starred, Trainwreck. Schumer will open for Madonna’s three New York dates, two at Madison Square Garden on September 16 and 17 and one at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on September 19. The combined average price for those three shows is $353.66, 12.7% more expensive than the overall tour average of $313.83.
Madonna Adds More North American Rebel Heart Tour Dates
(UPDATE 4/2/15) Reports will tell you that her tour is in low demand, but Madonna is proving otherwise. The iconic diva continues to add more North American dates to her Rebel Heart World Tour, and her latest announcement has her playing additional shows in Montreal, New York, Toronto and Edmonton on her late-summer and fall run.
Newly added dates include stops at Montreal’s Bell Centre on September 10th, New York City’s Madison Square Garden on September 17th, Toronto’s Air Canada Centre on October 6th and Edmonton’s Rexall Place on October 12th.
Following the wrap of her U.S. and Canadian leg in late October, the "Like A Virgin" singer heads to Europe for dates in November and December.
