Available Tickets

 

If you are looking for less expensive seats, you can find them directly at the box office at the moment. The majority of the seats are under $150 and there is a good number of tickets which are in the $100 range (see the bar graph below). The resale sites currently offer seats in the upper price ranges - typically starting at around $180 per seat and going up. 

 

Available Tickets for each Price Level
The box office at 'the Garden' offers the lowest-priced tickets with plenty of seats around $100.
6000 tickets are on the market

More than 13,000 seats have already been sold for this event, which is about 70% of the capacity. As you can imagine, Billy Joel is one of the biggest draws in Madison Square Garden. There are still a little over 4,000 seats left at the box office (mostly in the cheaper sections) and about 1000 seats are listed for resale. If you are looking for premium seats, then you should go to some of the resale sites like StubHub or Vividseats. They are considerably more expensive than what is left at the box office and they are being sold at a markup from their face value (the price they were originally purchased for).

Where and how to buy tickets for Billy Joel at Madison Square Garden?

The first thing you should decide is whether you want to buy tickets from the box office or from the resale market. Prices are cheaper at the box office, but tickets there are going quickly and at the moment, if you want a seat closer to the stage there are not many left. On the other hand, the secondary market (resale sites) still has some of the premium seats but they are considerably more expensive.
