The return of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band to Los Angeles was met with the expected high demand, both from fans and those looking to resell their tickets on secondary markets. A second L.A. date at the Sports Arena was added after an April 26 date, which went on sale at 10 a.m., quickly sold out. Tickets for an April 27 performance will go on sale today at 1 p.m.
The Sports Arena tickets are priced at $68 and $98, not including added fees, which bring the tickets up to $78.55 and $112.35, respectively. A spokesman for Nederlander Concerts, one of the show's promoters, couldn't answer how quickly the April 26 show sold-out, but more than 800 were soon available on resale site StubHub and an additional few hundred, including Ticketmaster's paperless tickets, could be found on sites such as NoHiddenFeesTickets.com.
A portion of tickets for the L.A. dates on Springsteen's tour, in support of his March 6 "Wrecking Ball" album, are paperless, meaning fans will have to present the credit card used to purchase the tickets for entry. A Ticketmaster spokeswoman said the paperless seats, which have a four-ticket limit, are reserved for the "best seats" in the house. Some of the paperless seats listed on the secondary market are already going for more than $1,100.
