Taylor Swift Detroit cheapest ticket

In case you’ve been living under a rock, Taylor Swift is coming to Detroit.

T-Swift is bringing The Eras Tour to Ford Field on Friday, June 9, and Saturday, June 10.

Arguably one of the most buzzworthy tours in history, ticket prices to see Swift have been astronomical.

Coming into the week, the cheapest ticket for Friday’s show on StubHub was $1,026. That doesn’t even include the asinine fees.

While that seems pretty crazy for a nosebleed seat at Ford Field, desperate parents and fans everywhere seem to be willing to fork over that kind of cash.

There’s so much more that one can actually do with $1,026 in Detroit alone.

The Detroit Tigers have a night game against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday. While watching the Tigers isn’t exactly an enjoyable experience right now, you can still save about $1,000.

Betting the cost of a Taylor Swift ticket on Detroit sports teams

If you are all about throwing away four figures for a relatively low payoff, there are some interesting futures bets you could consider.

Everyone is pretty hyped about the 2023 Detroit Lions. Could this be the year the Lions finally rewrite decades of embarrassing history?

Of the 15 different Michigan online sportsbooks, it is Caesars Sportsbook MI that gives Detroit the longest odds to win the Super Bowl.

At +2500 to win at Caesars, a wager of $1,026 on the Lions to win would pay out $26,676.

If you really have the urge to flush away $1,026, you can create this 3-leg parlay at DraftKings Sportsbook MI.

  • Lions to win the 2024 Super Bowl: +2200
  • Pistons to win the 2024 NBA Finals: +50000
  • Red Wings to win the 2024 Stanley Cup: +7500

This crazy parlay nets +87574700 odds. Should you wager that $1,026 and the miracle happens, you would collect $898,517,448.

Now, we are not advocating doing this as it is a certain way to burn $1,026. However, it feels like spending that much on a nosebleed concert ticket is as well.

What do tickets for other big events at Ford Field cost?

Taylor Swift’s arrival at Ford Field is part of a big series of events at the home of the Lions over the next handful of months.

However, T-Swift’s cheapest ticket cost far exceeds that of what is upcoming.

  • Morgan Wallen (June 29/30): $250
  • Ed Sheeran (July 15): $59
  • Beyonce (July 26): $190
  • WWE Summerslam (August 5): $80
  • Lions home opener (Sept. 17): $157.99

With all due respect to Taylor Swift, some respect needs to be put on our Tribal Chief Roman Reigns.
