How is it possible?
According to an article on NJ.comthis weekend’s shows of Elton John’s “Farewell Yellow Brick Road” tour at MetLife Stadium can be seen for less than $20.
There are seats available for the July 23 and 24 shows at East Rutherford on the secondary market which are very cheap. Incredibly low $18 on StubHub for the top tier. ($100 for the lower level and $185 for the floor.)
On Vivid Seats, the top tier is as low as $17. (Lower tier $95 and floor $214.) All before fees of course.
I don’t know why it happens that secondary market sites show less than Ticketmaster, but whatever. Jump!
If you want to see a living legend and this is your last chance, this is a crazy opportunity. I saw Elton John on that dueling tour he did with Billy Joel. He was amazing, but he announced he had a sore throat that night and would save everything for singing and no narration. It didn’t matter. He was always fantastic. (Nod to Captain Fantastic there.) Still, I’ve always wanted to see Elton John in his element in his own solo show.
What can you expect from these shows? While setlists can always be changed at any given stop and surprise guests can always appear on stage, according to setlist.fm this is an average setlist of a show from this farewell tour.
Including the encore, that’s 23 songs. It’s as low as $0.74 per song!
