Metallica has a US$7,000 ticket for their 2023 tour

Every tour has tiered levels of tickets from seats in the nosebleed section to passes with special VIP options. As I’ve seen firsthand, Metallica does this better and offers more options than you’ll see just about anywhere.

For the upcoming 2023 tour, a well-off superfan can pay up to US$7,272 for a special sort of ticket that includes access for seven friends. It includes the following (Quoting from WeAreThePit):

  • One (1) exclusive viewing platform for a private group of up to eight (8) people with an unbeatable view for BOTH shows in the same city*
  • Platform beverage cooler stocked with complimentary beer and soft drinks**
  • Access to the official “Black Box” pre-show lounge, which includes three (3) complimentary beverages, as well as appetizers and bar snacks
  • One (1) limited edition Metallica merchandise item for each member of your group
  • Pre-order your concert merchandise and have it delivered to your platform***
  • On-site perks such as priority check-in, dedicated support staff, and a fast-track lane into the venue

Why US$7,272? Because the upcoming new album is called 72 Seasons.

Too rich for your blood? There are other options here.

    You know…when you look at what you’re getting for $7272, it’s not that bad.

    Special seating for 8, drinks/beverages, appetizers, merch for all 8 people.

    I bought our tix for the Edmonton shows. 1st row of the upper bowl. $334 CDN each. Again, for two shows, that’s not a bad price.

    Just have to wait 21 months now.

      I agree. I clicked on this link thinking I was going to get annoyed that it was just a standard seat for $7k, but seeing what you do get its actually not bad at all. Think about 8 people for that price is a little over $900 per. Plus the other stuff you get.

      That price is still crazy for a show, but considering what other bands are doing, this is not bad.
