I always knew that prices at Barclay's would be significantly higher than our days back in Jersey but I am surprised at how high these prices really are...When you factor in the ticketmaster fees, the prices are unbelievably high. The prices are on par with MSG prices which means upper level will cost you at or over $100 per seat. Just a few things to note for those who are interested in buying tickets on September 24th:
Price are like Prudential in that prices change depending on the opponent. For example, price in section 1 for a Bobcats game cost somewhere around $160 per seat. Price for the Lakers game in section 226 cost somewhere around $127 per seat. So the big games will cost you significantly more money.
NO seats available at the $22 or $67 price levels. I'm not sure if it's because all the AMEX card holders bought all of them, or if they just aren't available for the STH presale, but all my searches yielded no results. Maybe people will have better luck on the 24th for those tickets.
My advice is that instead of trying your luck and buying tickets on the 24th with the hope that they will be cheaper then the high stubhub prices, is to buy the tickets at those stubhub prices now before prices rise because the people on stubhub are pricing their seats based on their season ticket prices. I am a season ticket holder and I have seats in section 22 and i can tell you that the season ticket holder price is SIGNIFICANTLY cheaper than the ticketmaster prices. The way they are pricing these tickets, if you plan on going to a game against a somewhat decent opponent, i'd be surprised if you could find anything in the lower level for less than $200-$300 per seat.
So basically before you scoff at the stubhub prices, there is a very good chance that they are going to go even higher once the 24th passes. Good luck to everyone!
