The Rolling Stones Top Forbes List of Priciest Concert Tickets

Buying tickets from online resellers like Stubhub has become a common practice for concertgoers, and it seems to have had an impact on the prices fans are willing to pay to see their favorite acts live.  Forbesmagazine is out with a list of the "Top Ten Most Expensive 2013 Concert Tours at the Ticket Booth," looking at how much people were willing to pay to see a show this past year on the so-called "secondary market."

The Rolling Stones topped the Forbes list, averaging a whopping $624 per ticket on the secondary market for the performances on last year's 50 & Counting trek.

In fact, the Forbes tally shows that fans of the biggest names of the 1960s and '70s are willing to pony up a small fortune to see them on stage.  Coming in at #4 was The Eagles.  Tickets for their History of the Eagles shows averaged $354.

In sixth place was The Who.  Fans were willing to pay an average of $314 per ticket to see the British rockers' Quadrophenia and More Tour.  Coming in at #8 was Fleetwood Mac, whose ticket prices averaged $282.  Rounding out the top 10 is Beatles legend Paul McCartney, whose tickets on the secondary market went for the comparatively affordable sum of $241.
