We all knew the Stevie Nicks concert Oct. 31 at the Orion Amphitheater would be a hot ticket. But if you are still trying to snag a ticket to the Halloween night show, you may end up paying hundreds of dollars.
According to online ticket broker StubHub, a single ticket to the concert ranges in price from $130 to $3,000.
Legendary status of Stevie Nicks driving the price
Let’s face it, the more popular and in-demand the artist, the more expensive the ticket to the show. That’s simple economics. And Stevie Nicks is a music legend — a two-time member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, once as a member of Fleetwood Mac and also for her work as solo artist — who has not performed in Huntsville before.
When tickets went on sale, the cheapest seat was listed at $90, and the most expensive was listed at $300. Well, that changes as we get closer to the show, and a look at ticket brokers throughout the online marketplace shows tickets mostly in the $250 – $400 range.
Front row seats are more than $2,000.
Not a bad seat in the house
Here’s the good news: basically any seat you get for a concert at the Orion is going to be a good seat. The designers of the venue wanted to make sure of that. So the $150 seats you may be buying won’t be in the front row, but they won’t be “nosebleed seats” in the upper deck of Madison Square Garden either.
The Orion seats 8,000 people and the venue was designed so that there would not be a bad seat in the house. So even if you do end up buying “cheap seats,” you’re going to get a decent view of the stage and the sound will still be amazing.
