Report: Ticket Prices for Jay Z and Beyoncé's Tour Dip Following Elevator Fight

Average cost for "On the Run" tickets drops 13.5 percent, according to Forbes.

Published May 22, 2014

A decline in ticket prices for Jay Z and Beyoncé's "On the Run" tour is being linked to the leaked video of the elevator fight between Solange and the Brooklyn-born mogul.

According to Forbes, the average number of "On the Run" tickets saw a 13.5 percent dip from $306.22 to $264.73 on the secondary market. The Carter's still remain in the top five among summer tours, however. 

While one area of the tour is seeing a price drop, others are flourishing. The couple's show at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif., boasts an average price of $518.38, which is more than 95 percent above the entire tour average. The most expensive date on the tour is the July 11 set at New Jersey's MetLife Stadium with an average price of $553.52, or 109 percent above the tour average. 

Jay and Bey added more dates to "On the Run" not long after the aforementioned video footage was made public. Jay Z and Solange attempted to kill the controversy by releasing a joint statement where they both took responsibility for their role in the blow up.

With the drama seemingly behind them, the Carters were back in tour promotion mode this past weekend. On Sunday (May 18), they unveiled the Bonnie and Clyde-inspired movie trailer "Run," to stir up even more anticipation for their first official jaunt together. Fans responded by petitioning for Mr. and Mrs. Carter to make the fake flick into an actual film.

The "On the Run" tour kicks off June 25 in Miami.
