Concert prices are down this summer from last year's heights, according to new data from SeatGeek.

Why it matters: Pop's biggest names aren't on the circuit this time around.

  • Experts say that last year's prices were likely due to historic demand to see Taylor Swift and Beyoncé.

By the numbers: SeatGeek reports that the average resale ticket price to attend a summer concert is $224, down from $269 around this time last year.

  • That comes alongside an 11% increase in the number of U.S. concerts this summer when compared to last year.

The top 10 artists performing this year, via SeatGeek:

  1. Olivia Rodrigo (Performed at Kaseya Center in March).
  2. Morgan Wallen (Panama City Beach, June 2; Tampa July 11 and 12).
  3. Zach Bryan (Amerant Bank Arena in Sunrise, July 22).
  4. Rolling Stones (Orlando, June 3).
  5. Noah Kahan (St. Augustine, Sept. 22).
  6. George Strait.
  7. Luke Combs (Kississimme, Oct. 20).
  8. Hozier.
  9. Chris Stapleton.
  10. Justin Timberlake (Kaseya Center, June 15).

State of play: The list is determined by overall sales on the ticket vendor's platform, as opposed to the average resale ticket price.

  • The average resale price for Rodrigo's tour is $571, and the next highest is $409 to see Wallen.

The big picture: Other notable artists touring this summer include Blink-182 (Kaseya Center, June 21) Foo Fighters and Billy Joel.
