Madonna is coming to Toronto this summer after announcing her tour last week and the city is pumped to welcome the Queen of Pop.

As expected, the public is buzzing about the chance to hear hits like “Material Girl and “Like A Prayer,” but that’s not the only thing people are talking about.

As of late, there’s been lots of discussion from aspiring concert-goers surrounding outrageous ticket costs and what hoops many jump through to secure a seat.

Tickets to Madonna: The Celebration Tour went on sale Friday and due to high demand a second concert date was added. The concerts are set for Aug. 13 and 14 in Toronto. 

However, many are finding it hard to score tickets and are often left with no other choice but to purchase re-sale ones.

Twitter users spared no time sharing their thoughts and said seats at the very back of the Scotiabank Arena were selling from anywhere between $300 and $400.

Meanwhile, VIP tickets were allegedly being sold for up to $3,000.

And if you’re an avid concert-goer then this probably isn’t your first rodeo with ticket hikes.

Last year, Taylor Swift spoke out about the hurdles fans face after many struggled to get their hands on tickets to her highly anticipated Eras Tour.

“It really pisses me off that a lot of [fans] feel like they went through several bear attacks to get [tickets],” she wrote on Instagram in the fall.
