Going to see a show is definitely not what it used to be. Pre-pandemic pricing for concert tickets was somewhat affordable and the resale game was not as competitive as it is today. Now your credit card is close to its limits if you plan to go to more than 2 “big” shows this year. We have a stacked lineup of artists coming to concert in Tampa this year. So we did a deep dive to see the most expensive concerts in Tampa for 2024.

Some clever people have found some hacks to get into these big shows for “cheap”. Many have learned this from Beyonc√©’s Renaissance World Tour or Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour. Some people will wait till the last possible minute to buy their tickets. They note in some viral TikToks that if you go to the stadium and wait till the headliner hits the stage, the remaining resale tickets drop! It can be a very stressful process, especially if you REALLY want to be at a particular show. You may miss the first few songs, but the discount will be worth it!

The prices you see below for these concerts in Tampa are just to get you in the door. Meaning they won’t be the best seats in the house. Some refer to them as the “nosebleeds”. They also don’t include those pesky fees we all know (and hate). So be prepared to cough up an arm, leg, and vital organ if you plan on going to any of these shows. (All the prices shown are from Ticketmaster).

Some may ask “Is it worth it to spend this money on concert tickets?” Well, we know the cost of living is a struggle and we all have bills to pay. But these concerts bring so much joy and life-long core memories. Maybe you can treat yourself with a lucky scratch-off or win a contest (wink wink.)

Here Are The 7 Most Expensive Concerts In Tampa This Year

  • Justin Timberlake - The Forget Tomorrow World Tour

    Justin Timberlake is in his comeback era. The “cheapest” tickets to get you in the door at Amalie Arena start at $125. And that’s for a partially obstructed view and basically the last row. Don’t say we didn’t warn ya!

  • Bad Bunny - Most Wanted Tour

    Bad Bunny puts on one of the hottest shows out there. This tour is special because there are no obstructed seats. So no matter where you sit in Amalie Arena, you should have a clear view of the stage. You may just need to bring binoculars for these $148 tickets in section 310.

  • Chris Stapleton - All American Road Show

    Chris Stapleton puts on an amazing show, so these $140 lawn seats are definitely worth it if you’re a fan or have never seen him before. Chris will be at the MIDFLORIDA Credit Union Amphitheatre with Grace Potter and Nikki Lane on Friday, May 10.

  • Morgan Wallen - One Night At A Time

    No surprise that one of country music’s biggest stars is selling out show after show. Tickets for his first ever stadium tour are going for $246 on Ticketmaster, and that’s for the 300 level. He’ll be at Raymond James Stadium on Thursday, July 11.

  • Sting

    If you missed them with Billy Joel earlier this year, here’s your second chance! Because this show is at the Mahaffey Theater in St. Pete, it will be a little more intimate and expensive to get into. Current verified resale prices for balcony seats start at a whopping $538. If you can cough up that much money, they’ll be here on May 9.

  • Zach Bryan

    You may be asking yourself “Who the heck is this guy”? He’s an up-and-coming unique country artist with a laid back sound. As we type this post, there are THREE (3) tickets left for his show at Raymond James Stadium on August 14. These tickets range from $575-945. But at least they aren’t nosebleed seats!
