(UPDATE 3/10/16) Whether a Belieber or not, there's no denying the success Justin Bieber has found with the release of his latest No. 1 album, Purpose. The beleaguered pop star has battled through a turbulent last two years, from egging houses and public drag racing to fights and illicit drug use, but has returned to the limelight with a level head and a newfound sense of maturity. A slew of memorable hooks throughout Purpose that has every age group nodding their head when listening certainly hasn't hurt the public's opinion, either.
Bieber's contagious songs will be on full display along his "Purpose" World Tour this spring and summer. The 22-year-old embarked on the monumental run last night in Seattle and will make 63 more stops in the U.S. and Canada through July. It appears that fans will be paying up to attend, too, as Justin Bieber tickets on the secondary market along the four-month North American stretch are reaching record highs for the Ontario-born singer.
According to TicketIQ, the average price for Justin Bieber tickets over the remaining 63 shows is now $463.78 - easily making it his most expensive tour on average ever. The "Believe" World Tour, which ran between 2012 and 2013, owned a secondary market average of $180, marking a 157% average price jump between tours. His maiden world tour, the "My World" Tour from 2010-11, averaged a $285 ticket across 80 dates in the U.S. and Canada.
Bieber makes his most expensive upcoming stop at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on March 25. That show currently owns a secondary market average of $914.27 and the cheapest ticket available is listed for a cool $237.50. Prior to the show in Sin City, his top-priced show came on November 11, 2010 at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia. That show averaged a $857.66 and the get-in price started at $149.50.
Conversely, a July 7 show at Baltimore's Royal Farms Arena is his cheapest gig at an average price of $254.39 and a $103 get-in price on the resale market. That is the highest price point among his cheapest shows by tour scale, with both the Believe and My World Tours holding shows well below the $200 average.
The Purpose World Tour continues in the U.S. and Canada through July 19, capping with a two-night stay at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

Bieber will be celebrating his album release on Friday, November 13 with two separate release parties at Staples Center.
