Sales Slow For Guns N' Roses Toronto Show
Did Guns N’ Roses misjudge the appetite for tickets to see the band live in Toronto?
According to Ticketmaster, roughly two-thirds of the 48,217 tickets available for the July 13 concert at Rogers Centre remain unsold nearly one week after pre-sales began and three days after they went on sale to the general public.
As of Monday afternoon, roughly 60 percent of the $310.75 floor seats remain up for grabs and more than 80 percent of the cheapest tickets – seats on the 500 level priced at $108.50 – are unsold.
Also still available are hundreds of VIP package floor seats, priced between $688.80 and $1,056.16, as well as several dozen $500 VIP package seats on the 100 level.
There is also plenty of space remaining in the general admission pit, where a ticket to stand in front of the stage runs between $751.94 and $1509.62.
Added to the available inventory are dozens of “verified resale” tickets, including several floor seats directly in front of the stage priced at a whopping $4,075.75 each.
Toronto is the only Canadian stop on the summer tour GnR announced on Feb. 3. Smashing Pumpkins will be the opening act.
Guns N’ Roses last played the venue in July 2016 but did a pair of concerts at Scotiabank Arena in October 2017.
