Just like that, another month in the books. Yes, October will bring the cool dawn of fall, but more importantly, it will bring sweaters. In fact, there’s a lot to look forward to: from changing leaves and pumpkin everything to picnics and concerts that make you forget winter looms just around the corner.
In September, we collected the most exciting tours of the season and now we’ve crunched the numbers to see if the general public agrees. Well, that’s not true, our friends at SeatGeek did the math — not exactly our favorite subject. Mind you, this list is determined specifically on the premiums these tickets demand.
5. Luke Bryan
All-american country powerhouse Luke Bryan commands quite the audience, one willing to pay around $109 per performance.

There seems to be no shortage of living legends on tour these days, but that doesn’t mean their shows are cheap! Stevie Wonder’s performances continue to be in high demand, trading at around $126 on average.
3. Zac Brown Band
This Atlanta eight-piece certainly gets around. With a heavy touring schedule that only bolsters their popularity, Zac Brown Band tickets go for well over twice their sticker price.
Madonna never goes out of style. This year’s Rebel Heart Tour is a testament to that, with average ticket re-sales hovering well over three times face value.
