Tickets For Sold Out Meijer Gardens Shows Now Listed For More Than $200
Scalpers are THE. WORST.
Tickets for the Frederik Meijer Gardens Summer Concert Series went on sale to Meijer Gardens members last weekend, and ten of the thirty shows are already sold out.
If you're looking for tickets to Foreigner, Styx, Three Dog Night, The Temptations with the Righteous Brothers, Sarah MacLachlan, O.A.R., Michael Franti and Spearhead, Cake, Amos Lee, or Old Crow Medicine Show, you can still find them but they'll cost you a pretty penny.
A quick search on Stubhub shows tickets for nearly every show that's coming to the Gardens this summer. Want to check out that sold out Sarah MacLachlan show? It'll run you $206. Per ticket. (They were originally $95.)
The Temptations with The Righteous Brothers will be slightly cheaper to see with a price tag of only $199. (The originally were only $65.)
There are even tickets for sale on there for shows that aren't sold out with hugely inflated prices. (I'm looking at you, person selling your $120 Steve Miller Band tickets for $201...)
While I understand why Meijer Gardens does their ticket sales the way that they do, and it's awesome that shows sell out so quickly, I feel bad for the fans who are either going to have to pay through the nose to someone on StubHub in order to check out a band they love, or just not go to the show at all.
