Fleetwood Mac, Maroon 5 & Taylor Swift Top Forbes List of Most Expensive Secondary Market Tour Tickets 2015



Everybody knows that going to concerts can be quite an expensive date and that ticket scalpers are basically the least ideal way to get in to a show -- but it's a sad inevitability. But, what musical acts have the most sway on the secondary market in 2015? Forbes has released a list of the 15 priciest touring acts, and the answer may surprise you.

Fleetwood Mac tops the list of the most expensive secondary market seats, according to the money magazine. Thanks to a reunited lineup that includes Christine McVey, the "Go Your Own Way" band can get over $300 on average on the secondary market for its On With The Show Tour, easily surpassing some more modern pop acts.

But that doesn't mean that pop doesn't have a huge sway. Maroon 5's V Tour comes in second, with secondary market tickets averaging at $279.42. Taylor Swift's 1989 Tour also is a hot ticket, averaging over $262. Chris Brown and Trey Songz's co-headlining tour also cracks the top five, with an average secondary market ticket clocking in at $258.70.

Rock acts also have a very strong showing in the top 15, with legendary bands like Neil Diamond, U2, The Who and Bob Seger all making the top 10. And, despite its best efforts, Foo Fighters cannot beat the secondary ticket market. The band's upcoming Sonic Highways Tour also makes the most-expensive list, with tickets costing fans upwards of $160.
