5 Tips: How to Save Money on Jay-Z Tickets
Summer is underway, which means a fresh batch of epic fall concerts are right around the corner. Among them is Jay-Z and his just-announced 4:44 tour. While tickets to see the rap icon are in high demand, you shouldn’t have to blow your life savings in order to catch a glimpse. Read on for our top tips on how to save money when buying tickets to Jay-Z’s 2017 fall tour!
Tip #1: Utilize the Ticket Tracker
Find out when Jay-Z ticket prices drop in a city near you by utilizing SeatGeek’s “Track Artist” feature. When you track the artist and/or event, you’ll be notified of any cost fluctuations and if any additional dates have been announced. You can find the “Track Artist” feature at the top of any performer or event page.
Tip #2: Check Out Nearby Cities
While it’s certainly more convenient (and exciting) to catch Jay-Z performing at your local venue, it might not always be the smartest move. If you live on the East Coast, do some comparison shopping to see what nearby venues offer the cheapest ticket prices. For the die-hard fans living in a larger, less-clustered area, consider planning a summer vacation to one of the more affordable concert destinations.
Tip #3: Use Deal Score
When spending hard-earned cash on concert tickets, fans want to make sure they’re getting their money’s worth. Deal Score is a tool developed by SeatGeek to help rank the value of a ticket based on historical prices for the performer and the venue, the row location, the expected sightline from the section, and the quality of the other available tickets for the event. Utilizing this feature will ensure that you’re getting the most bang-for-your-buck when buying Jay-Z tickets.
Tip #4: Wait Until The Last Minute
Calling all procrastinators! If you don’t mind being spontaneous, waiting until the week (or even hours) before the concert can often save buyers money when purchasing tickets. While it’s not a guarantee that prices will drop, sellers with remaining inventory are eager to rid themselves of extra tickets, thus costs go down the closer it gets to show time.
Tip #5: Cozy Up To The Nosebleed Section
If you’re just looking to get to the Jay-Z show and don’t really care where you sit, sort the ticket listings by “price.” It’ll filter the cheapest options to the top, showing you the current lowest get-in price for the concert. With Jay performing at such large venues on the 4:44 tour, there will likely be large screens projecting him so that everybody gets a clear view. Or with the money you saved on your nosebleed tickets, you can buy a fancy pair of binoculars.
