The Rays have announced 4 post-game (and family friendly) concerts for the 2014 season. Each is free with paid admission to the accompanying game. Secondary market gurus TiqIQ will break down ticketing trends for each below:
Weezer post-game concert - 6/7/14 vs Seattle
Average ticket price: $90, Get-in price: $30
Kicking off the 2014 concert series is LA rock band, Weezer. Since their formation in 1992, they’ve had 10 singles hit the Billboard 200 charts. This will undoubtably be the favorite of the 90′s babies and 30-somethings planning to catch a Rays game this year. It also marks the 2nd cheapest average price of the concert series and cheapest chance to catch Weezer tickets throughout their US tour.
O’ Jays post-game concert – 6/21/14 vs Houston
Average ticket price: $99, Get-in price: $20
One of the most popular R&B groups of the 60′s and 70′s, the O’ Jays take the stage following the June 21st game vs Houston. The Rock & Roll Hall of Famers were responsible for 7 top-20 singles, including “Love Train”, “Back Stabbers”, and “I Love Music”. The group’s current incarnation features original members Eddie Levert and Walter Williams. This is the 2nd priciest game of the set.
Imagination Movers post-game concert – 7/27 vs Boston
Average ticket price: $133, Get-in price: $39
The Rays will celebrate Christmas in July following the July 27th game vs the world champion Red Sox. If you’re looking to introduce your young ones to baseball, this is an excellent opportunity to catch a quality opponent and keep the kids entertained if they aren’t into the game. Children 14 and under will receive a free Chris Archer Christmas Stocking and be treated to an Imagination Movers post-game Christmas concert. At an average ticket price of $133, this is the 3rd cheapest game of the Rays/Red Sox series, but still 34% over the home average of Tampa Bay Rays tickets at $99. The cheapest ticket will currently cost you $39, which is the most expensive of the Rays concert series.
The Wiggles post-game concert – 9/7 vs Baltimore
Average ticket price: $82, Get-in price: $14
A late-season matchup with the Orioles also sports the cheapest post-game concert of the 2014 campaign as Australian children’s group The Wiggles hit the stage after the game. With a get-in price of just $14, this is currently the only chance to grab The Wiggles tickets in the US.
