VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) – Paul McCartney is now going to cost you a pretty penny, if you want to see him play in Vancouver Nov. 25.
Lower-priced tickets at BC Place sold out Friday afternoon.
“I’ve had so many people call me to say this is on my bucket list to see Paul McCartney at least once in their life. This show has gone ballistic,” says Kingsley Bailey with Vancouver Ticket Services, who points out presales hyped the event and allowed the more affordable tickets to be scooped right away
“What a presale does is it makes people feel more important to know that they have a presale code. In this day and age, the way tickets are selling so quickly, it allows the promoter to sell a lot more tickets.”
These hot tickets are all over sites like Kijiji and Craigslist. Some prices are already as high as $1,200.
