Last November, Springsteen defended the price of tickets for the tour in response to the outcry over how much some fans were being charged.

“And the bottom line is that most of our tickets are totally affordable. They’re in that affordable range,” he said in an interview.

“We have those tickets that are going to go for that [higher] price somewhere anyway. The ticket broker or someone is going to be taking that money. I’m going, ‘Hey, why shouldn’t that money go to the guys that are going to be up there sweating three hours a night for it?’”
