Kendrick Lamar is hitting the road in support of his critically-acclaimed new album, DAMN. With only 17 stops on the summer run, tickets to see rap’s hottest MC will surely be in high demand. Read on for our top five ticket-buying tips to help you save money and get the best value!

Tip #1: Utilize the Ticket Tracker

Find out when Kendrick Lamar 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 as a heart icon on the top of any performer or event page.

Tip #2: Check Out Nearby Cities

While it’s certainly more convenient (and exciting) to catch Kendrick Lamar performing in your city, 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 Kendrick Lamar 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 into the K-Dot 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 Lamar performing at such large venues on the DAMN. 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.
