Maroon 5 and Train Summer Tour–Collaboration Benefits Both Bands
With the first dates in Maroon 5 and Train’s collaborative summer tour fast approaching, excitement over the concert series is driving significant ticketing traffic. From July 22 through September 24, Adam Levine and Pat Monahan and their respective band members will perform together in more than 40 cities across the country.
In the past year, Maroon 5 has kept fans entertained with the release of several new songs including their hit “Never Gonna Leave This Bed”. Meanwhile, Train continued to enjoy the attention brought by “Hey, Soul Sister”, the song that catapulted them to the forefront of the music scene. The combined star power of these two bands makes for an explosive tour.
In fact, according to SeatGeek’s ticketing data, the coming together of Maroon 5 and Train has benefited both groups. By co-headlining they have created a greater demand for tickets than they would have attracted on their own. For instance, from May 12 to June 12 of last year, Maroon 5 sold tickets for their 2010 summer tour at an average of $106 (they were headlining alone). During that time period, tickets for Train’s summer tour with John Mayer were selling for $108 on average.
In contrast, from May 12 to June 12 of 2011, Maroon 5 and Train tickets averaged around $155. Obviously, the 2 in 1 nature of an event like this must mean somewhat higher ticket prices. However, Train did co-headline last year–the fact that this year’s tickets are selling for much higher prices than Train’s 2010 collaboration with Mayer indicates that Maroon 5 is a more dynamic match.
