There’s a lot for music fans to look forward to in 2017. In particular, there are some majorly attractive tours in the works from today’s biggest hitmakers and legendary artists alike. New albums lead to new shows, while classic anniversaries and reunions continue to lend themselves to massive tours.
Looking at the average price of sold tickets in the Vivid Seats marketplace thus far, we were able to get a rundown on which tours fans are most excited for in 2017. While many more live ventures are sure to be announced throughout the year, the below offers a snapshot of the artists that are the most in-demand as we begin the new year.
With a well-documented stellar live production, Bruno Mars tops the list with tickets selling for an average of $214. Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers’ big 40th anniversary tour slides in at number three with an average sold price of $183 per ticket, just $3 cheaper than a spot at a Coldplay gig during the extended A Head Full of Dreams Tour. Guns N’ Roses’ reunion tour is still going strong, clocking in as the sixth most anticipated tour at an average sold price of $157 a pop, while other stalwarts like Roger Waters ($172) and Stevie Nicks ($141) sit at fifth and ninth respectively.
