Atlanta And Raleigh Have Most Expensive County Megaticket This Summer

Apr 2 2014, 2:34am CDT | by

Summertime is a common theme in many country music songs, and that warm weather so often sung about is also the best time of year to enjoy a country concert. For those country fans wanting to get the most out of the wide array of summer concerts, Country Megaticket is a good option and ensures that your summer will be fill of music. The purchase of a Country Megaticket gives country fans access to all participating country concerts at the designated venue. Artists involved include Luke Bryan, Keith Urban, Lady Antebellum and Jason Aldean, with Country Megatickets available for 35 different concert venues across North America. Currently, there is a limited quantity of tickets on the secondary market, but the secondary market is best value when available if you’re willing to commit to all those shows.  Prices, however, vary dramatically by city.  While some of that is driven by country-music interest in the cities themselves, the mix of artists and number of shows also has a big impact.

Seats for Atlanta Country Megaticket are amongst the highest demand for the summer, mostly due the number of performances and big names scheduled. Aaron’s Amphitheatre will host seven shows throughout the summer with the first being Lady Antebellum on April 11, and will also feature shows from Jason Aldean, Tim McGraw and two Luke Bryan dates. For the whole Megaticket, the average price on the secondary market is $1,020 with a $419 get-in price. That averages out to $145.71 per show with an average get-in price of $59.85. While many primary market tickets are still available in Atlanta, the average price for lawn seats is $207 per show.

Nine shows will take place in Raleigh with August performances from Keith Urban and Miranda Lambert, all kicked off with an April 25 Lady Antebellum concert. The average price for Raleigh Country Megaticket at the Walnut Creek Amphitheatre is $1,141 with a get-in price of $355. While the average price is a little higher than in Atlanta, it does include two more concerts and breaks down to a lower average price per show at $126.77. The get-in price is also lower and currently sits at $39.44 per show; creating one of the best Megaticket deals at any venue. $255 per-show lawn seats are already sold out on the primary market leaving the cheapest primary option to be the Silver Seating at a $499 per-show cost.

Concerts at the MIDFLORIDA Credit Union Amphitheatre for Country Megaticket Tampa have the lowest per show price on the secondary market for any venue with at least six dates. One of those concerts, on September 26, still has a to be determined artist, which could influence the price once that announcement is made. For now the average price across the six shows is just $434, a $72.66 per-show average. The get-in price is $236, for a $39.33 per-show average. Primary market tickets are sold out in Tampa, adding to more value to the deal.

The Saratoga Performing Arts Center will only host three country concerts this summer, but Country Megaticket Saratoga is among the highest demanded on the secondary market. All three shows will be in August; Rascal Flatts on the 13th, Luke Bryan on the 17th, and Jason Aldean on the 29th. The average ticket price on the secondary market is $376 with a get-in price of $263. Over the three shows, that brings a $125.33 show average and an $87.66 average get-in price. Compared to the primary market of a lawn seat for $155, both prices end up being great deals.

Plenty of Country Megaticket Cincinnati seats are available on the primary market, but once again the secondary market provides the best value. The Riverband Music Center will host nine concerts on the Megaticket with performances by Tim McGraw, Brad Paisley and Dierks Bentley. The average secondary market price is just $656 with a $534 get-in price. With just a $72.88 average per show, that’s greatly under the $299 lawn price per show on the primary market.

With the limited number of Country Megatickets currently on the secondary market, the savings presented might not last long. Under 1,000 secondary market tickets still remain for some of the more popular venues. Whether purchased on the primary or secondary market, getting a summer’s worth of concerts at one price would be a great deal for any country music fan.
