Is Grand Rapids The Cheapest City In The Country For Concerts?
This may be hard to believe if you recently shelled out 200 bucks a ticket to the see Bob Seger, but according to one financial web site, GR is the least expensive city to see a concert.
How much it costs you to see your favorite artist can depend on your location . . . and sometimes the difference can be huge.
The web site Wanderu found that, on average, going to a concert in Los Angeles will cost you 75% more than attending the same concert in Grand Rapids. Wow. I guess we do have it good.
The study took into account venue fees, accommodation costs, purchasing power of the region, and public interest from city to city . . . but that last one seems to be the most important.
The demand in a city like L.A. to see someone like Katy Perry is probably going to be more intense than it is in Grand Rapids . . . and there are more people willing to shell out big money to go.
The average ticket price in L.A. is $127.57, making it the most expensive place to see a concert in the country
After Los Angeles, the rest of the Top Five are: Las Vegas, Houston, San Diego, and Washington D.C.
The average price in Grand Rapids is $73.09, which is good for 47th, or the least expensive large city to see a show in.
The next lowest cities are: Buffalo, New Orleans, Indianapolis, and Little Rock, Arkansas.
