People might not really buy music anymore, but they will certainly pay to see their favourite artists perform live.

Buying resale tickets to sold-out gigs can be expensive, but which artist has the greatest percentage price increase?

We’ve looked at the resale price of the biggest musical acts in the world. Some of the results are fairly predictable – such as tickets to see Adele or Justin Bieber having a massive resale value, however if we look at the percentage price increase we get a much more surprising indicator of demand.

One English singer-songwriter has a price increase of 5028% for her gig tickets, more than five times higher than Coldplay.
