- It’s no secret that the price of concert tickets has skyrocketed in recent years – but it’s jarring to see just how much tickets cost now vs. in the 90’s.
- The folks out Loudwire ran down a few 90’s acts still going today, and compared ticket prices then vs. ticket prices now:
- Metallica: The band’s 1991 Black Album tour sold lower-level tickets for $22.50. The band’s upcoming M72 tour will charge upwards of $750 for tickets near the front.
- Red Hot Chili Peppers charged $28.50 for floor seats during their 1999 tour – during their recent ‘Unlimited Love’ tour, the average ticket price was $178.
- Guns N’ Roses charged just $14.50 for general admission on the 1987 Appetite for Destruction tour. Their 2022 tour ranged from $67 to $214.
