You Won’t Believe How Astronomically High Minnesota Taylor Swift Ticket Prices Are
Or maybe you will believe it. I guess, it depends on how you look at it.
Whatever the case, Taylor Swift's "Eras Tour" is the hottest ticket around the country this year. After tickets went on sale, chaos erupted as fans tried buying tickets while Ticketmaster had some, um, problems.
With two dates scheduled in Minnesota for Taylor's tour coming up on Friday, June 23, and Saturday, June 24, there are still a lot of fans trying to figure out a way to see one of her performances at US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. Incredibly, there are tickets still available on the resale market The cost of those tickets will give you some real sticker shock, however.
In looking around on some of the major ticket resale websites, there are still tickets you can get - some of them are even great seats - but expect a comma in the dollar amount you'll pay per ticket.
Here's a look at ticket options for each of Taylor's nights in Minnesota this summer:

Friday, June 23 Tickets
If you're looking for tickets for Taylor's Friday night show, the absolute cheapest tickets I could find as of the time of this post were a pair in the far upper bowl, about as far back from the stage as you can get, or sort of behind the edge of the stage. How much? $1,282 per ticket on StubHub. Remember that all these prices don't include the associated fees.
SeatGeek's cheapest tickets come in at $1,432 each in section 328, and VividSeats cheapest tickets come in at $1,636 each in section 348, sort of behind the stage.
If cost is no concern and you just want some great seats, there are options for you. Buckle up!
You can actually get some floor tickets near(ish) the stage for a few thousand dollars per ticket. StubHub shows floor ticket prices for as little as $2,394 for a ticket at the outer reaches of the floor area, with tickets getting up to $15,390. SeatGeet shows tickets on the floor as cheap as $3.582 per ticket, ranging up to $12,761. VividSeats has floor seats starting at $3.554 per ticket, ranging up to $5,615.
In case you're curious, the most expensive Friday tickets I could find were club-level tickets in section 218. StubHub has some listed in row 5 of this section for $18,430 and VividSeats has some listed in the same row at $19,849 each.
Saturday, June 24 Tickets
A fair amount of tickets are also available for Saturday as well, with the cheapest tickets coming in around the same starting prices as Friday night's show. The cheapest tickets I could find were once again on StubHub, coming in at $1,282 per ticket.
These seats are again in the upper bowl, with options at this price range in both sections 346 and 348, at the back corner of the stage area. SeatGeek has tickets listed as cheap as $1,315 in section 348 and VividSeats as low as $1,488 in section 204.
Floor seats are available from all three outlets for Saturday, with prices about the same as the Friday night seats in the same sections. The cheapest floor seats I could find toward the back of the floor area in Section A6, priced at $2,394 on StubHub. Many of them come in between $3,000 and $4,000.
What about the most expensive tickets? If you're curious, like I was, I had to look.
The most expensive overall tickets come in at $18,430, located in Section 227 on StubHub. While those are purely the most expensive, you could argue that there are some better experiences available for less, but still on the high-end.
Near-stage seats on StubHub in Sections A1 and A3 come in at $15,390. SeatGeek also has some VIP packages listed for anywhere between $7,567 and $8,404 (non-floor seats with included benefits like hotel stays, merchandise, etc., depending on the package).
