Springsteen Tix Gone Wild: Tulsa is the Best Bet, But In Boston a Few Seats Remain at $1,405


Bruce Springsteen tickets went on sale in a bunch of new venues this morning, and they are mostly sold out. To scalpers.

The best bet is Tulsa, where you could still get a great seat for around $700. In Boston just now there were a few floor seats left at $1,405. But they are also back by the sound mixing tent.

Tickets for New York and New Jersey don’t go on sale until Friday. That’s when all hell breaks loose. Think you’ve seen prices as high as $10,000 today? Just wait til Friday.

In the New York area, Springsteen so far has one date booked at MSG — appropriately for April Fool’s Day. There are just a few others including two big ones at Belmont Park on Long Island, one at the Prudential Center in Newark. There’s no doubt those dates will expand — especially MSG — as demand goes off the hook on Friday.

On some ticket selling sites, prices are so high there’s an opportunity to finance them with Affirm.

Another good deal? You can sit behind the stage at Mohegan Sun Casino arena for just $790. That seems reasonable. Bruce does move around quite a bit, so there’s a chance you’ll see him.
