The Lumineers have extended their Cleopatra World Tour into 2017. The tour, which was announced last January, has been weaving around the globe since April, hitting major amphitheaters and arenas. The Denver-based pop-folk trio launched the extended portion of the tour on September 29 in Austin at the Austin360 Amphitheater, and the tour will hit 33 dates until next March. Major stops include Madison Square Garden in New York City on February 2 and the UNO Lakefront Arena in New Orleans on March 3. Singer-songwriter Andrew Bird and Icelandic band Kaleo will serve as the opening acts for select dates. Margaret Glapsy and Susto will also open up for The Lumineers on select stops.
Tickets went on sale to the public on September 30, and have flooded the resale market. As it stands, tickets for The Lumineers are averaging $160 on all extended dates. The priciest show is slated to be the band's January 17 stop at the CenturyLink Center in Omaha, where tickers are averaging $241, with the cheapest ticket going for $54. Right behind that stop is the band's February 28 show at the Verizon Theatre at Grand Prairie in Grand Prairie, Texas, where tickets are averaging $231, with the cheapest ticket going for $94. Conversely, the band's cheapest stop is scheduled to be their October 7 show at the Greek Theatre in Berkeley, where tickets are averaging $135, with the cheapest ticket priced at $112. Surprisingly, the band's stop at MSG on February 2nd is not their priciest. Tickets for that stop are averaging $187, with the cheapest ticket going for $58.
Tickets for The Lumineers are likely to increase as just yesterday, President Barack Obama invited the band to perform on the South Lawn of the White House for an event called South by South Lawn. Inspired by South by Southwest, the event will bring together a variety of creators, innovators, and organizers and will include musical guests.
