The just-announced Foster the People world tour has the music scene buzzing as people start wondering how they’re going to get their hands on one of the hottest tickets of the year. As “Pumped Up Kicks” hit the radio, Spotify and countless multi-media outlets over the course of the last year, you could see the effect on Foster the People ticket prices pretty clearly.

Foster the People Ticket Prices

It’s all in the venue, in some respects, when you look at how varied Foster the People concert ticket prices were on average over the last nine months. In August, one show in Chicago cost $216.65 on average while the following show two nights later in Detroit was only $31.08 – an 85.6% drop in just two nights! If you take a look at Foster the People ticket prices in 2011 by month, you’ll see a distinct summer peak marked by some of the priciest shows. When the weather’s warm and school’s out, it’s time for all the other kids with pumped up kicks to dance all around, I suppose. (Sorry, too easy.)

As the year rolled on, expensive Foster the People tour dates produced ticket averages of $237.46 (Austin, TX), $160.75 (San Francisco), $155.77 (Sunrise, FL) and $101.08 (Seattle). Three shows in the last week – two in Portland, OR, and one in Columbus, OH – gave fans the opportunity to see Foster the People live for less than $50 on average. Sometimes, you just get lucky.
