5 Tips to Save Money on Foo Fighters Tickets
After a brief hiatus, the Foo Fighters are back in a big way. The band has recently announced plans for their ninth studio album, Concrete and Gold, and they’ll be hitting the road in support of the new tunes.
While tickets to see America’s favorite feel-good rock group will surely be in high demand, you shouldn’t have to blow your vacation fund in order to catch a glimpse. Read on for our top tips on how to save money when buying tickets to the 2017 Foo Fighters tour! Tickets to the Concrete and Gold tour go on sale to the public Thursday, June 29 at 10am ET.
Tip #1: Utilize the Ticket Tracker
Find out when Foo Fighters 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 Foo Fighters performing at your local venue, it might not always be the smartest move. If you live in a coastal area, do some comparison shopping to see what nearby cities 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 Foo Fighters 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 Foo Fighters 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 the band performing at such large venues on the Concrete and Gold tour, there will likely be large screens projecting them 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.
