Poll: Concert tickets too expensive

July 25, 2010 at 4:54 PM   |   Comments

ASBURY PARK, N.J., July 25 (UPI) -- People think the cost of concert tickets is too high and almost two-thirds of adults say they haven't attended a concert in the past year, a poll indicates.

Seventy percent of adults polled said the cost of attending a concert was too much, a Rasmussen Reports telephone survey released Saturday said.

More than a third of those polled said they would not spend more than $25 for concert tickets, while another third said they would spend $50.

Asked who most influenced ticket prices, 42 percent said the performers, 21 percent put it on the venues, and 17 percent said it was ticket services responsible for the high prices.

Women are more likely than men to think concert ticket prices are too high, the poll showed.

The telephone survey of 5,000 adults was conducted on July 11-12.

The margin of sampling error is plus or minus 1.4 percentage points, Rasmussen said.
