Taylor Swift Headed To The Sprint Center For Two Shows In 2015
Taylor Swift is coming to Kansas City, but fans will have to hold their breath for another 10 months before she plays back-to-back dates at the Sprint Center next September.
On the heels of her most successful album release yet, Swift has announced plans to embark on a massive six month North American tour beginning in May. The 24-year-old pop star will play 63 shows through October, with intentions to rock Kansas City on September 21 and 22. A lot can happen over a 10-month span, but preliminary Taylor Swift tickets on TiqIQ for both Missouri shows have already reached considerably high prices on the secondary market.
The current secondary ticket price for both Kansas City dates are nearly identical, with September 21 tickets having an average price of $332.40 and her following show the next day listed at $330.12. The cheapest ticket for both shows starts at $140. Swift currently owns an upcoming tour average of $263.51, marking a 20% boost over tour average for tickets to both of her Kansas City shows next fall.
Both shows have also seen significantly more expensive secondary ticket averages than when Swift’s previous tour hit the Sprint Center in 2013. The Red Tour made two stops in Kansas City in the summer of last year, where secondary tickets averaged at $136.42 over both shows. Taylor Swift tickets on TiqIQ for her two upcoming Kansas City dates next September average over 140% more than that. As the “Shake It Off” singer exceeds her expectations with each album release, so do her ticket sales on the secondary market.
At just 24, it is a testament to Swift’s increasingly popular image, clean-cut personality and marketing team that the singer has remained atop the pop charts for the better part of a decade. While her songs are simple and her messages frank, Swift has used her modest upbringing to mold a prominent pop and country career in the music industry that continues to evolve with each subsequent release. There’s no telling how big she’ll be once she returns to Kansas City next fall, but odds are she’ll stay put at the forefront of pop music.
