Tickets For Joint Jay-Z And Beyonce Shows 44% More Expensive Than Individual Tours

May 6 2014, 2:08pm CDT | by

They’ve been married for six years, but Jay-Z and Beyoncé have never co-headlined a tour together, until now. Hot on the heels of the official announcement of their upcoming co-headlining On the Run tour, a 16-city North American jaunt kicking off June 25 in Miami and concluding August 5 in San Francisco, the demand for Jay-Z & Beyoncé tickets is through the roof for what is guaranteed to be one of the biggest tours in recent years.

According to TiqIQ, it’s also one of the most expensive. In fact, when it comes to other high-profile co-headlining tours or individual solo tours by either Jay-Z or Beyoncé themselves, On the Run tickets are head and shoulders above the rest.

With an average ticket price of $342.67 on the secondary market, tickets for Jay-Z & Beyoncé: On the Run are 90.16% higher than prices for Jay-Z’s solo Magna Carta tour last fall, when Jay-Z tickets were $180.20 on average. They are also 16.55% higher than tickets for Beyoncé’s Mrs. Carter Show world tour from last year, when Beyoncé tickets were priced at $294.01 on average. While ticket prices on the secondary market are through the roof, there are still a few tickets left on Ticketmaster, which is selling tickets for the tour and owned by LiveNation.

Jay-Z has toured with industry giants including Eminem and Justin Timberlake, but neither has been as big of a draw as his wife. When Jay-Z toured with Eminem, tickets averaged $279.50, which is 16.55% below the current rate for Jay-Z and Beyoncé tickets. When Jay-Z toured with Justin Timberlake, tickets averaged $187.98, or 82.29% below the current rate to see music’s ultimate power couple in concert.

But it’s not just past co-headlining tours they are beating. Jay-Z and Beyoncé On the Run tickets are also priced at 51.39% higher than Eminem and Rihanna tickets for their upcoming Eminem and Rihanna: Monster Tour — which kicks off later this year and is currently priced at an average of $226.35 on the secondary market. That three-city tour features six dates at major U.S. stadiums in August including the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California, MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, and Detroit’s ComericaPark.

None of this, however, should come as a total surprise. With nearly 200 million records sold between them, 36 total Grammys, and a combined net worth of around $850 million, Jay-Z and Beyoncé are a creative force to be reckoned with. When their talents are combined, the sky is limit; at least as far as ticket prices are concerned.
