Like last week, the next few days of this week are going to be quite busy, with a lot of activity in concerts, sports, and theater. However, one of the onsales we'll be paying particular attention to is that of the New York Yankees. That's because single game tickets for Yankees home games go on sale this coming Monday, February 24.
Of course, we're really interested to see how well Yankees tickets sell in light of Derek's Jeter's recent announcement that he is retiring after the upcoming season. I don't think anybody doesn't think they'll sell extremely well — the final home game and final regular season game ought to do particularly well — but we are excited to see how the retirement affects demand.
We already have some preliminary answers to that. More than a week after the announcement, prices have spiked. Last Friday, I noted that the average selling price for Jeter's last home game on September 25 had risen almost $250 from before the announcement to after it. Today I can report that the after-announcement selling price is now $505, almost $100 more than seven days ago.
We're a little late to this whole Jeter retirement price comparison thing, but we wanted to wait long enough for some data to come in before saying anything about the numbers.
A couple articles, including this one from ESPN, have outlined what happened to the listing price of Jeter's final games after his announcement, but I haven't seen anything about the selling price. It's one thing to say that ticket prices have shot up, and they have, but it's another to look at what ticket buyers are actually paying.
The average selling price for Yankees tickets listed on TicketNetwork.com indeed spiked significantly from before the announcement to after it. Before, the average selling price for Jeter's last home game on September 25 was $169. After the announcement, the average selling price rose to $409.
Tomorrow and Saturday are big days for concert onsales. First up, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band will have initial onsales for U.S. dates of its "High Hopes" Tour. Tickets for about half the tour will become available for the general onsale this weekend, with most of the rest going on sale next weekend.
This weekend will also see onsales for OneRepublic's "Native" US Tour. Tickets for 33 tour dates will be up for grabs. This includes those added to the first leg after the initial tour announcement in December, as well as the second U.S. leg that was announced last week.
Other concert acts with onsales Friday include Jimmy Buffett, Jason Aldean, Tool, and Billy Joel. In theater, Disney On Ice's "Rockin' Ever After" has several onsales Friday for several shows in Lexington, KY. Also, both of Cirque Du Soelil's Michael Jackson-themed shows, "One" and "Michael Jackson The Immortal" have onsales for shows in Greensboro, NC. "The Immortal" also has onsales for shows in Columbus, OH.
