Tickets for Bruce Springsteen’s one-man Broadway show are going for as much as $12,500 on the resale market, putting the musician into “Hamilton” territory.
The New Jersey-born rocker’s “Springsteen on Broadway” show, which opened Thursday to mostly positive reviews after a brief preview period, is sold-out for its entire run through Feb. 3. Seats on StubHub, the resale site, start around $1,500 for most performances, with select tickets costing five figures in a few instances.
The original prices ranged from $213.50 to $875, not including 26 tickets made available for every performance through a lottery for $75.
Last week, the show took in $1.9 million at the box office, according to figures released Monday by the Broadway League, a trade group. That puts “Springsteen on Broadway” almost in the same league as such sales juggernauts as “Hamilton,” “The Lion King” and “Hello, Dolly!”
