Few Tickets Remain for Blake Shelton’s Sprint Center Performance on Friday
Blake Shelton, of the biggest names in country music, will play a near-sold out show at The Sprint Center on Friday night. Shelton’s tour kicked off February 18 a the US Bank Arena in Cincinnati, Ohio and will run until March 19 where it wraps in Pittsburgh at the CONSOL Energy Center. The tour announcement came last October, just before Shelton released Reloaded: 20 #1 Hits, a no-filler disc in celebration of his 20th No. 1 hit on the Billboard charts.
The tour has been a successful run for the 39-year-old country singer, who has seen a handful of packed arenas on the tour. His February 26 performance this Friday night is one of the most expensive stops of the tour, as tickets for the performance are averaging $185 on the secondary market, with the cheapest ticket going for $71. On the primary market, all but one section of the Sprint Center still has seating available. Across all of his scheduled shows, tickets to see Blake Shelton are averaging $141, and the priciest cities include Wilkes-Barre Township, Pennsylvania, Lincoln, Alabama, and Dallas, Texas. Conversely, Shelton’s most affordable performance is scheduled to be his March 3 stop at the FedexForum in Memphis, Tennessee, where tickets are averaging just $90, with the cheapest ticket priced at $30, according to data provided by TiqIQ. Shelton’s popularity has continued to rise over the years, and his continued role as a judge on NBC’s reality show The Voice since 2011 has been a contributing factor the singer’s demand.
Australian rockers AC/DC will also make a stop in Kansas City this weekend, as they’re also scheduled to play a sold-out show at The Sprint Center. Tickets to AC/DC on Sunday are currently averaging $264, with the cheapest ticket priced at $152. The performance was originally scheduled for Monday night, but was forced to be rescheduled a day earlier due to a funeral in the U.K.
