It’s no surprise that the entire concert of the regional music icon, Rashid al-Majed, sold out very quickly despite the jaw-dropping price tag on VIP tables.

The concert that will take place in Kuwait on Friday has sold the most expensive tickets recorded in history, costing up to $5,400.

The most recent concert that was believed to have sold the most expensive tickets was by Egyptian superstar Amr Diab at the Dubai Opera earlier this month, with tickets sold at $380.

Earlier this year, the 2017 New Year’s eve party, British band Coldplay’s concert ticket prices left fans puzzled and angry when a large number of tickets turned up for resale online at shocking prices. The tickets had originally been priced at $95 to $407.

Other international artists such as The Rolling Stones and One Direction have also been known to have sold some the world’s most expensive tickets with a price tag between $600 to $400.
