PHOENIX — If you’re looking to go to a pre-Super Bowl party in the Phoenix area but want to do so on the cheap, you may want to skip the concert hosted by Rolling Stone magazine.

Forbes reports the magazine’s concert tickets are averaging nearly $1,400 on ticket resale site TiqIQ. The cheapest ticket is going for about $900.

Steven Tyler of Aerosmith and Charlie XCX headline the party.

Other Super Bowl events across the Valley also cost a pretty penny. The DirecTV Fan Festival — led by the likes of Snoop Dogg, Zac Brown Band and Imagine Dragons — is commanding an average ticket price around $500. Tickets to an event at the Hotel Valley Ho in Scottsdale start at $226.

For the budget conscious, tickets to Super Bowl Media Day average $68.

Of course, these are all tickets sold on the secondary market, meaning prices are hiked. If you want to spend way too much party with Victoria’s Secret models, tickets to the Leather and Laces event start at $495 and top out at $950.

We want to hear from you.
