What People Are Talking About

World Series

Of course everyone's talking about the World Series and whether the Red Sox or Cardinals will win. But after last night's game, people are also talking about James Taylor's flub during the National Anthem. Guitar in hands, he started out sounding fine, only he sang the words to "America the Beautiful" instead of the "National Anthem. He caught himself and quickly swapped over after the first few words. James Taylor's flub was particularly inoffensive, so I'm sure it will blow over pretty quickly. Poor dude.

After I posted an article about the new Michael Jackson Cirque du Soleil tour kicking off a few weeks ago, I wondered how ticket sales were doing across the dozens of cities hosting the show, especially considering the huge amount of anticipation for the production. So, I got some stats from the TicketNetwork Exchange on average tickets prices for both current inventory and tickets already sold.

The most expensive tickets currently listed for sale are for the shows in Eugene, OR, which average $409.53 per ticket. Following Eugene in highest listed prices are Salt Lake City, UT, at $335.34; and Las Vegas, NV, at $334.55. Compare those to the lowest average price in Springfield, MA, where tickets are being listed for an average of $83.33, over $200 less than the fifth most expensive city.

But what are people actually paying for tickets? Demand seems to be highest for the Las Vegas shows, where the average price for tickets purchased is $289.26. Close behind are Miami, FL, at $282.83; Los Angeles, CA, at $274.46; Washington, DC, at $254.34 and Chicago, IL, at $253.75. Interestingly, Eugene, OR, is at the bottom of the list, with an average sold price of $103.17.
