Cincinnati Post Article on JB Ticket Prices

March 8th, 2006

The Cincinnati Post has an article on the price of tickets for this year’s show at Riverbend.

Jimmy Buffett, who has likely grossed more than $25 million (by conservative estimates) from the Cincinnati market over the past 25 years, isn’t done yet.

The troubadour, who has turned the beach bum persona into his Margaritaville entertainment corporation, is asking $128 (plus service charges) for a pavilion ticket when his June 8 Riverbend concert goes on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday. Lawn seats are $38.

It is the highest ticket price Buffett has ever charged, a 45 percent increase over last year’s $88 Riverbend ticket, at the time the highest that Buffett had charged. Last August’s Buffett show sold out in minutes.

It is one of the highest ticket prices in Riverbend’s 22-year history, rivaled by two concerts in 2003 from Fleetwood Mac ($132.50) and the Kiss/Aerosmith double bill ($127.75). The Eagles reunion tour broke the three-figure barrier at the venue in 1995 ($112.50).
