Paul McCartney Candlestick Concert Hits a Home Run on Secondary Ticket Market

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Paul McCartney has dominated the stage for more than half a century.

The former Beatle, who is in the thick of a North American leg of his Out There World Tour, has no plans of stopping any time soon, either. Paul McCartney tickets on the secondary market continue to generate demand and drive prices up, especially when he plays his most expensive show of the tour on Aug. 14 at San Francisco’s Candlestick Park, the last event to be held in the stadium.

According to TiqIQ, the average price for the Candlestick Park concert on the secondary market is currently $575.57. McCartney has an average tour price of $251.47 on the secondary market, making the show 128.8% more expensive than the tour average.

More than that, McCartney’s Candlestick show is currently more expensive on the secondary market than the opening home game of the San Francisco 49ers schedule at Levi’s Stadium. The stadium will officially open for its first regular season football game Week 2 game against the Chicago Bears with average price of $481.49 on the secondary market, 16.3% lower than McCartney’s show in San Francisco a month prior. The game will be nationally broadcasted as the Sunday Night Football game in Week 2.

San Francisco 49ers tickets are among the most expensive in the NFL for the upcoming season but the opening of the new state-of-the-art stadium does not come close to secondary market price for Candlestick’s last concert. The only home game that comes close to the average price of the McCartney concert is a Week 13 game against the Seattle Seahawks. The game will be the first time San Francisco and Seattle meet in the 2014 and the game will be played on Thanksgiving night. The average price of the game is currently $546.67, 5% below McCartney’s concert, but 39.7% above San Francisco’s season average.
