AC/DC Will Hit Sprint Center Next Week, And Ticket Prices Won’t Be Cheap
Turn the amps up to eleven and put on your cleanest schoolboy outfit, AC/DC are coming to Kansas City next week. The iconic hard rock band has proven that age is just a number on the “Rock or Bust” World Tour, which continues its stateside-jaunt until early April. It will cost a pretty penny to be on hand at Sprint Center on Monday, too, as AC/DC tickets on the secondary market are nearing the $300 average entering the weekend.
According to TiqIQ, the average price for AC/DC tickets in Kansas City is now $295.78. That marks a 15.4% increase on average since last Friday, when tickets owned a median price of $256.31. If looking just to get past the turnstile on Monday, the cheapest available ticket is currently listed for $190.
Among the 12 shows remaining in the U.S. on the Rock or Bust World Tour, Monday’s stop at Sprint Center falls in the middle of the pack in terms of secondary market ticket pricing. It is the sixth most expensive show remaining of the tour, falling behind notable stops at Madison Square Garden on April 4 ($311.64 avg./$167 get-in) and the top-priced remaining show at Philips Arena on March 8 ($517.48 avg./$218 get-in).
AC/DC broke back onto the scene last April with their two-weekend headlining slot at Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. The band last toured extensively with the “Black Ice” World Tour, which ran over 168 shows in five continents between 2008 and 2010. That tour went on to gross more than $441 million in total revenue, making it the fourth highest-grossing tour of all-time.
The band would play the first Rock or Bust dates in Europe in May, making stops in 16 countries through the end of July. With the conclusion of the second North American leg in April, AC/DC will then travel to Europe for a sixth and final stretch between May and June. By its conclusion, the Rock or Bust Tour will have played 87 total dates in 13 months.
