Police Tickets Keep Fans Wrapped Around Their Finger

06-25-2007 06:23 PM CET | Leisure, Entertainment, Miscellaneous

Press release from: ShowTimeTickets.com

The Police are set to deliver a series of greatly anticipated, high-energy shows for their Canadian fans, with back to back dates in both Toronto and Montreal. Additional shows across North America continue to be announced due to high demand.

Legendary rock band, The Police are set to bring their crowd-pleasing performance to both Toronto and Montreal with two shows apiece in late July, before returning to the Air Canada Centre for a final Canadian date in November. There are plenty of ticket deals to be found, as amateur ticket speculators and professional ticket brokers from all over North America have flooded the secondary ticket market with various quantities of inventory, which they had purchased in hopes of turning a quick profit in the volatile and sometimes lucrative secondary market.

The Police Tour is arguably the most sought after ticket of the year with over 1,770,000 tickets sold to date, according to ThePolice.com. The 80’s rock-trio kicked off their highly anticipated reunion tour last month with a three-night run in Vancouver, BC, initiating the start of a world tour with more than 70 performances currently scheduled.

With face value prices originally as high as $240 per ticket and two to three times that amount in the secondary market, it came as a pleasant surprise to fans in Vancouver, that come opening night, prices had dropped 200% from where they were when the tour was first announced. For their first official concert in 23 years, prices bottomed out to the point where tickets were sold for half of the face value, ($49-$89 each), as listed on ShowTimeTickets.com.

The world tour is scheduled to end early next year, following two North American legs, a European tour, and dates throughout Latin America, Japan, Australia and New Zealand. The last date of the European tour, October 19th at Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium, sold out within an hour of going on sale, setting a record for the venue previously held at three hours by Oasis and the Foo Fighters in 2005, as reported by BBC News.
