“Bruce Springsteen does not care about you,” writes NJ.com, an outlet straight out of Springsteen’s home state.
The complaint is over the ticket pricing for Springsteen’s upcoming 2023 tour. Tickets went on sale Wednesday, and floor seats have been going for as high as $4,300. Standing room-only seats have been priced at $1,125. These insane costs are the fault of Ticketmaster’s “market priced” system, which prices tickets not on a flat fee but based on demand. The higher the demand, the higher the ticket cost.
This isn’t the first time “working class hero” Springsteen has fronted a show with tickets costing more than many working-class people bring home in a week. Back in 2017, “Springsteen on Broadway” tickets climbed as high as $850
