This is why I only do one (expensive) concert a year, if that. Ticket prices for major concerts are outrageous. I am shocked at the amount of people who pay for floor seats but spend half the concert going to and from concession for alcohol. Some of the packages for floor seats start at 300 and can go upwards of 700 dollars for less popular artists. I can't imagine what Taylor Swift or Ariana Grande cost for the VIP treatment. I wanted to see Ariana on this concert tour but it was nearly 300 for seats in the nosebleeds. No thank you, next.
One of my friends did buy nosebleed seats to see Drake a couple years ago. The show hadn't sold out and his team didn't want him performing to a half sold out floor seats. People sitting up in the nosebleeds at that particular concert were upgraded to the floor.
