Justin Bieber’s Purpose World Tour Scheduled to Hit Kansas City on April 6; Tickets Available Here
After months of anticipation, one of the world’s biggest pop stars, Justin Bieber, will be taking his massive Purpose World Tour to Kansas City’s The Sprint Center. The “Sorry” hitmaker is scheduled to play a show on April 6, and face value tickets are entirely sold out for the performance, forcing fans to rely on the secondary market for tickets to see Justin Bieber. Unfortunately for the Beliebers late to the game, tickets aren’t cheap.
The performance, which will feature opening acts Post Malone and Moxie Raia, is currently averaging $467 on the resale market, with the cheapest ticket available for $240. When tickets went on sale last November, face value tickets ranged from $50.50- $116, marking a huge numeric jump from primary to secondary. Compared to the rest of his tour, tickets across all scheduled dates are averaging $464, with the cheapest performance scheduled to be his March 25 stop at The Toyota Center in Houston. For that date, tickets have jumped to an unthinkable average of $794, with the most affordable ticket priced at $367, according to data provided by TiqIQ. Fans traveling to see the show can cut down on ticket costs by utilizing Parkwhiz.com for parking deals in Kansas City.
For an artist like Bieber, the expense for his live shows aren’t without good reason. Recently, Bieber’s Skrillex/Diplo collaboration, “Where Are U Now,” earned the star his first Grammy award, and the respect of many fans in the EDM genre. His latest album, Purpose, is critically-acclaimed and has spawned three number-one singles for the tabloid king. Thus far, reviews of the concert have been excellent, with fans citing an excellent collection of classic hits as well as newer songs for the recently converted Beliebers.
Despite the many ups and downs in his career, Justin Bieber has been a consistent live draw. In 2010, Bieber toured the world on his My World Tour, which ran from June 2010 until October of 2011, and tickets averaged $285. From 2012-2013, Bieber toured in support of his third studio album Believe, a 150+ show run that averaged $180 across all performances.
