Morgan Wallen, the country music sensation known for hits like “Whiskey Glasses” and “Last Night,” has captured the hearts of fans across the world. His live performances are legendary (I know from first-hand experience), creating an irresistible urge among fans to experience his music in person. However, as many fans have discovered, attending a Morgan Wallen concert doesn’t come cheap nor are tickets easily attainable. In this article, we’ll dive into the world of Morgan Wallen tickets and explore whether the high cost is worth the experience.

The Initial Shock

Wallen announced a new leg of his “One Thing at a Time” tour adding ten new cities, thus causing fans to rush to secure their tickets. However, the initial shock came when fans saw the price tag. You first must sign up for the presale, and IF you get a code then you get the opportunity to buy tickets. Wallen tickets can be surprisingly expensive, especially for premium seats or VIP packages, but for this new leg of the tour, the tickets were priced higher than ever before. All the venues on this leg are stadiums so that usually drives the price up as well, but never this high.

Let’s Talk Ticket Prices

I luckily got a presale code for the Charlotte, N.C., show on July 18 and I was so excited to look and possibly buy tickets, but what I saw I wasn’t prepared for. I got on my computer right when the waiting room started and was placed in the queue. Then, it was finally my turn to look at tickets! First, I went to the pit, and they were $700. Absolutely not. Next, the lower bowl, which was still over $300, was not in my budget. Then the very top nosebleeds were still $90 to $200. So, let’s just say I did not purchase any tickets this time around. Luckily, I will still see him TWICE in 2024!

Factors Affecting Ticket Prices

Finally, I did some research into what is making these tickets go so high on this tour! Several factors contribute to the high cost of Morgan Wallen tickets. First and foremost is the artist’s immense popularity. His chart-topping singles and energetic live performances have created a massive fan base, resulting in a high demand for tickets. Additionally, the limited number of tour dates and venues has driven up prices, as fans are competing for a spot at a select few shows.

Is It Worth the Splurge?

Ultimately, the decision to splurge on Morgan Wallen tickets depends on individual circumstances. For die-hard fans (like me), the chance to see their favorite artist live may be priceless. However, it’s essential to consider your budget, financial priorities and whether the concert experience aligns with your expectations.

Morgan Wallen tickets are undeniably expensive, but for many fans, the opportunity to witness his electrifying performances makes it a worthwhile investment. Before purchasing tickets, carefully assess your budget, explore different ticket options and decide what aspects of the concert experience matter most to you. Whether you choose to splurge on VIP packages or opt for more affordable seats, a Morgan Wallen concert promises an unforgettable evening filled with his chart-topping hits and a contagious country vibe. I promise that you will not be disappointed as every seat is a good one because he puts on an AMAZING show!
