  • Data Reveals When to Buy Concert Tickets for the Best Prices


    Shows are constantly being announced and sometimes it’s hard to know what you can or can’t make it to at the time. The secondary ticket market has exploded, though it’s often a challenge finding tickets that aren’t draining your whole wallet.

    To discover the best time to buy concert tickets, FinanceBuzz analyzed data on the resale market for recent concerts of some of the top acts currently touring.

    Here’s what they found:

    • It pays to wait to purchase concert tickets. Concert-goers spent 33% less than average on tickets when purchasing them on the day of a concert, and 27% less than average the day before.
    • Just under two weeks before a festival was the best time to buy passes — Prices were 30% below average 13 days before the festival start and 24% below average 12 days out.
    • 24% of concert tickets and 25% of festival tickets bought on the resale market are purchased in the week leading up to the event.
