Arcade Fire’s Brooklyn Concert Ticket Prices Are Insane

There have been hints that Arcade Fire will be playing in Brooklyn this weekend. Forty-five dollar tickets to see a band called the Reflektors — a pseudonym they’ve previously performed under — went on sale this morning for two shows at an industrial space in Bushwick. Naturally, the concerts sold out immediately to both fans and scalpers. At time of publish, StubHub prices for the Friday show are nearing $500 while Saturday’s event is priced by some sellers so astronomically high that it has to be a joke. There is a single ticket being listed for $9,999, as well as a pair that is going for $5,000 per ticket (which boasts a $1,000 service charge from StubHub). eBay and Craigslist both have tickets listed in the hundreds, but as it’s been pointed out, there’s an alternative and it’s trading with this guy for access to “something else interesting or crazy cool happening in the city.”
