Never saw Elton John? NJ farewell show can be had for less than $20 (Opinion)
How is this possible?
According to an article on NJ.com, this 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 in East Rutherford on the secondary market that are going for dirt cheap. An insanely low $18 on StubHub for upper-level. ($100 for lower-level and $185 for floor.)
Over on Vivid Seats, upper-level are as low as $17. (Lower-level $95 and floor $214.) All these are before fees of course.
Not sure why it’s happening that secondary market sites are showing cheaper than Ticketmaster but who cares. Jump!
If you want to see a living legend and this is your final chance, this is an insane opportunity. I saw Elton John in that duel tour he did with Billy Joel. He was amazing, but he announced he had a bad throat that night and would be saving it all for the singing and no storytelling. It didn’t matter. He was still fantastic. (Nod to Captain Fantastic there.) Yet I always wanted to see Elton John in his own element in his own solo show.
What can you expect from these shows? While set lists can always be tweaked on any given stop and surprise guests can always pop on stage, according to setlist.fm this is an average setlist from a show on this farewell tour.
Including encore, it’s 23 songs long. That’s as little as $0.74 per song!
