Interesting theory when in fact LA Floor seats have SOLD already for $350+.
No shit. You're talking about the highest demand tickets for probably the highest demand show -- Saturday night LA -- right after the show sold out. Zero surprise there. I was talking macro picture, and you're cherry-picking micro.
Feel free to come back when the tour starts and look at where stubhub and craigslist prices are throughout the tour. A bunch of shows still have lower level tickets available and won't even sell out.
The combination of ridiculously inflated ticket prices and large venues means this entire tour has buyer's remorse written all over it. Anyone that bought face value got duped. For most dates, week of the show you'll see plenty of 20-30%+ off face when people realize they actually paid $170 to see Kanye West, scalpers start dumping inventory, and the stubhub race to the bottom starts.
Kanye is totally worth the $170 imo. Just not the $350 I spent lol. That being said I put the tickets on Craigslist and Ive had inquiries on them just about every day, so Im not really buying into this. I think tickets will sell right around face, but definitely not 20-30% below.
More then two weeks later I was finally able to buy tickets I was happy with from AXS. Went with $40 300 level tickets since they are finally NOT behind the fucking stage. Need price point that actually is worth where the seats are are the $150 GA tickets. $150 for PRs or $100 to sit side stage where you maybe can't see?
Hey, what's the best song on the new album. I'm trying to listen to it, but it's not really clicking with me. Please just give me a title so I can listen on Spotify.
My favorite is Black Skinhead.

Ha! The Seattle show seems to be tanking hard. Today there are $110 for front row seats in the center section. I have been monitoring since I am going to go to this show and haven't purchased tickets yet. Probably gonna wait for the massive dump in price the day of the show.
You can still go on ticketmaster and get amazing seats. It seems this is the only show that has TM's "Choose Your Seats" interactive map active for the show. In that same center section ($110 front row seats on stubhub) you can look and see there are lots of available seats. Same for the mirrored section on the other side of the arena.
Even the VIP GA tickets have gone down in price from mandatory $350 vip package to $199 to $141 (same price as regular GA).
