Price of Cher Tickets Continues to Rise Through First Dates of Dressed To Kill Tour

Apr 4 2014, 4:17pm CDT | by

Twelve years ago, Cher embarked on a farewell tour. Originally scheduled for 59 dates throughout North America in 2002, the tour eventually evolved into a 326-date world tour. After the release of her 25th studio album, Closer to the Truth, in September, the singer announced she would be taking one more pass at a farewell tour. The ‘Dressed To Kill’ Tour kicked off at the end of March and is planned to hit 49 cities in North America through the middle of July. As one would expect, prices for Cher tickets across her final farewell tour are expensive across the secondary market.

Adding to the high price for the tour could be the opening acts. While openers don’t usually move the needle for major tours, the supporting acts on this tour won’t hurt. For the first 13 dates, through April 12, Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo will be the opening performers. During the next 36 dates, Cyndi Lauper will be the opening act. Lauper was also the opening act for Cher’s ‘Do You Believe?’ and ‘Farewell’ tours.

Saturday night ‘Dressed To Kill’ will roll into Connecticut for the ninth stop on the tour at the Mohegan Sun Arena. Cher Mohegan Sun tickets have an average price of $309 on the secondary market, 11.15% above the tour average of $278. Even with the recent date, the get-in price for the concert is still above $100 at $106. The show next Wednesday night in Boston is one of the cheapest of the major cities Cher will be playing. The average price of $302 for Cher Boston tickets is still above the overall tour average by 8%, but the get-in price of just $69 is one of the cheapest on the tour.

Montreal’s Bell Centre currently holds the the highest get-in price for any date on the tour at $163. Cher Montreal tickets have an average price of $345 on April 25, 24% above the tour average. The tour will make a stop in Ottawa the next night before heading to the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia on April 28. Cher Philadelphia tickets have an average price of $312 with a get-in price of $93.

The highest demand, though, comes for the May 9 show at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center. Without a concert scheduled at Madison Square Garden, this will be Cher’s only stop in New York City. Due to that fact, tickets have an average price of $357 on the secondary market, 28.4% above the tour average. Fans hoping to travel to Brooklyn could get better value with Cher Brooklyn tickets starting at just $87. New York area fans could also ride across the river the following night to IZOD Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey for an average price of $303.

‘Dressed To Kill’ will see plenty of demand across all tour dates through July with limited primary market tickets available for shows that aren’t already sold out. There could also be the chance the tour gets expanded like the first farewell tour for additional domestic and international dates, though repeating another 326-date marathon is unlikely.
