Page 1 of 11

The love for music knows no boundaries; for some people, not even financial boundaries. But how much would you be willing to pay for the once in a lifetime opportunity to hear your favorite singer or songstress?

Following, we would like to present you with a list we have compiled of the top 10 most expensive concert tours of 2013, based on the statistics issued in early January by Forbes Magazine. The countdown takes into account the average price for a one-person entry, at the ticket booth.

The Rolling Stones emerged as the undisputed leaders of 2013 concert tours. At least when it came to ticket prices, with an average of $624. 2013 marked the band’s 50th anniversary and the show they put on during their tour is enough proof that they are still going strong. The priciest stop of the tour was the performance at the MGM Arena in Las Vegas on May 11, where the average ticket cost a whopping $1044.

At the other end of the spectrum we have former Beatles member, Sir Paul McCartney, whose tour, Out There!, had an average price ticket of $241. But the most expensive performance of the tour was nearly twice that. A ticket for the July 14 performance at Bankers Fieldhouse in Indianapolis sold for an average of $443.

Former “All the single ladies”, current Mrs. Carter, Beyonce proved she’s a superstar whether she’s cheering for female power or embracing wifehood. Average ticket prices for her 2013 tour were a little under $300, but her most expensive performance was on June 29, at the MGM Arena in Las Vegas, where tickets averaged $764.

Justin Timberlake, who scored the best-selling album of 2013, makes an appearance on the most expensive concert tours list as well. His 20/20 Experience Tour had tickets selling for an average of $339, landing him in the middle of our countdown. The most expensive show on the tour was on November 15, at the Bridgestone Arena, where tickets sold at an average of $512.

Curious to see which musicians organized the most expensive concert tours in 2013? Let’s take a look at the countdown.
