Fans Are SCREAMING Over The Price Of Beyonce And Jay-Z's VIP Tour Tickets
16 March 2018, 12:25
Not a meet and greet in sight...
When it was announced that Jay-Z and Beyonce were heading back on tour together last week, the world collectively lost their sh*t. Their iconic "On The Run II" tour will be hitting Europe and North America in 2018 with 36 tour stops confirmed in cities across several countries.
Upon hearing the news, we immediately cancelled our plans, sold all our belongings and took out several loans in preparation just in case. But judging by the prices of some of the ticket packages, it looks like we're now gonna have to consider trading organs on the black market.
Ticket prices for the tour range from "I can totally afford this!" to "That's three months worth of rent, Beyoncé!?" and seeing as there's very limited general admission standing, the truest of stans are gonna have to pay A LOT if they wanna be at the front.
Prices and VIP package features were shared online by fan groups and here's what kind of dollar we're looking at:
Prices for US VIP Packages: https://t.co/fBiVQnFhgy— BEYONCÉ LEGION (@Bey_Legion) March 14, 2018
• Runway VIP Experience - $1991
• VIP Riser Experience - $1846
• On The Run II VIP Lounge - $1246
• VIP Premium GA Package - $771
• Gold VIP Fan Package - $591
• Silver VIP Fan Package - $391 pic.twitter.com/cVFEuRDAt3
The most expensive VIP package is $2000. And I don't know about you but for that price, I'd expect a private meet and greet with Jay and Bey themselves, maybe even the opportunity to be in the presence of Blue Ivy for a second or two? Mama Tina, even?
No. For that price, sweetie, you get to meet members of the tour crew (LOL!), have an "intimate backstage tour", a VIP parking space, some merch, some drinks (not free) in a VIP bar where a DJ will be spinning Jay and Bey's "latest hits", and the chance to take some photos on a GREEN SCREEN.
To be fair, you do also get a reserved spot "in sections" along the runway so if you've got the money to be in sweat drip distance from two living legends, then go for it.
But people are still absolutely losing it on Twitter over the prices and what is actually included in those damn VIP packages:
Lmfaoooo I'm crying they got folks paying $2k for VIP tickets just to meet the crew of On The Run 2 tour lmfao— EL FOOSAY (@SheHatesJacoby) March 14, 2018
Beyonce IS NOT important enough to spend $475 for nosebleeds nor $2300 for VIP. For them prices I could have paid rent for a decent apartment for the next 4 months... I KNOW y'all lyin'. pic.twitter.com/3q8vl47eYm— Xiaundez (@Emi_Bayyy) March 15, 2018
Beyonce and Jay z tickets are almost 1300 dollars. For that price I better see Sir and Rumi, I need a house tour, Solange better reenact the elevator fight. I better meet the real Becky with the good hair. The carters and Ticketmaster done lost they damn minds— Khadija👸🏿 (@KayDeeMil) March 14, 2018
My mother: So how much did you spend on the Beyonce tickets?— Kalen Allen (@TheKalenAllen) March 14, 2018

If I’m paying $2,000 for the On The Run II tour VIP package, there better be a meet-and-greet with someone who’s last name is Knowles, Carter, or even Lawson (only Ms. Tina though).— Lisette (@_misslisette) March 14, 2018
Members of the Beyhive have been telling y'all for months that Beyoncé was coming. We saw the braids. We saw that damn laptop. We told you to start stashing away your coins in a Beyoncé concert fund. And now you're complaining about the cost of tickets? pic.twitter.com/zPrlUJjaQJ— Evette Dionne (@freeblackgirl) March 14, 2018
Does Ticketmaster do payment plans? pic.twitter.com/4SJJnujiHr— Banjela Bassett (@TerryTorro) March 14, 2018
Do I retire at a reasonable age or shell out for VIP Beyonce tickets?— Akilah Hughes (@AkilahObviously) March 14, 2018
Back when Jay and Bey last took the On The Run Tour on tour, there were a few occasions where they held meet and greets with fans in the VIP area, so there's a very slim chance that that could happen again but don't hold your breath... the elusive chanteuse and ha husband probably won't be letting you know in advance. Fate will decide for you.
See you on the runway, sweeties. And to my Landlord: don't expect my rent for the next three months, I've contributed to the Carter twins' college fund instead. x
