Billy Joel and Britney Spears Top List of 25 Most Expensive New Year's Eve Shows

Dec 23 2013, 9:08pm CST | by

While he made recent news with the announcement of his open-ended run at Madison Square Garden in 2014, Billy Joel will be ushering in the new year across the river in Brooklyn at the Barclays Center.  If you’ve had a prosperous 2013 and are looking for the most expensive way to welcome 2014, Billy Joel tickets for his single show in Brooklyn are the answer. The average price to see his show, with Ben Folds opening, is $477.

Compared to Joel’s run at Madison Square Garden, the New Year’s show is a bargain. The average price for the currently scheduled nine shows at MSG starting on January 27th is $579.  That’s down $20 from when the run was announced at the beginning of this month.

For New Year’s Eve, Joel is in a price category by himself, with Britney Spears tickets and Maroon 5 tickets as the next most expensive for their shows in Las Vegas.  At an average price of $233, Phish tickets are just about half the price of Joel’s Brooklyn show, and if not for Phish’s longstanding New Year’s eve residency at MSG, Joel would have likely kicked his MSG run on New Years Eve.

Along with Jill Scott’s show at Radio City Music Hall, Phish and Joel give New York City a dominant seven of the top 25 New Year’s Eve shows. Los Angeles and Las Vegas are next with two each.  If you’re looking for non-music options, the most expensive option is Book of Mormon tickets, which you can see in either New York or San Francisco.

Below is a complete list of the 25 most expensive tickets on New Year’s Eve:
