After health issues forced Bruce Springsteen to postpone the tail end of his 2023 tour, he announced a list of rescheduled tour dates Friday. Two concerts at San Francisco’s Chase Center were rescheduled from Dec. 10 and 12 to March 28 and 31, respectively. 

Nicknamed “The Boss” by fans, Springsteen is known for rock anthems like “Born to Run” and “Born in the U.S.A.,” which appealed to mass audiences while remaining unapologetically grounded in a working class perspective. 

But the Boss’ latest tour drew criticism from some fans for its exorbitant ticket prices, with some seats costing north of $5,000. Ticketmaster, which handled sales for the tour, opted to sell Springsteen tickets using its Official Platinum system, which “enables market-based pricing (adjusting prices according to supply and demand) for live event tickets.” In theory, market-rate tickets won’t fall prey to resellers, but for this tour, it hasn’t exempted fans from steep prices. Springsteen’s silence on the matter angered fans, too, with some even declaring themselves finished with the artist.

As of Friday, Oct. 6, at 1:50 p.m., the least expensive tickets for the newly announced March 28 tour date were $275 each plus fees, for two seats behind the stage. The priciest tickets cost $10,185 each for two coveted floor spots. (The second most expensive pair of tickets was less than half that price, at $4,735 each.)

It’s possible that in the weeks following the announcement, prices will continue to drop. 

Tickets for the postponed December tour dates will remain effective for the new concert dates, according to Springsteen’s website. Information regarding refunds is “available through the official ticketing company for the specific date,” the announcement added.
