Best Values for 2016 New Year’s Eve Music Shows

in Music News by

It may only be October but many San Francisco residents are already planning their New Year’s outings and for many it includes attending some epic music shows. There will be tons of live concerts celebrating 2016 and counting down 2017, but which ones are the best bang for your buck? Since many San Franciscans are planning to travel back home for the holidays, VividSeats.com has recently compiled a list of the best values for music shows throughout the country.

New Years Eve highlights include Bassnectar, Maroon 5, Phish, Elton John, Kid Rock and many others already scheduled with additional announcements coming in daily. A couple of standouts include the cheapest NYE show this year, which is Kid Rock, with tickets available as low as $28.00. On the flip side the most expensive way to ring in the New Year will be with Bruno Mars, with Decadence Music Festival a close second. Want to avoid NYE traffic/madness? No problem – many shows are on the 28th, 29th, and 30th as well!
