I wanted to go to Alicia Keys as well but then decided not to do it afterall and now I'm seriously biting myself in the ass. Especially considering that her ticket prices of 65 € were quite cheap for today's standards. I was interested in going to Celine Dion on the 20th of June but then saw her ticket prices and my interest flew out the window. You have to pay at least 130€ for a decent ticket in the nosebleed section and at least 160€ for a ticket in the lower bowl. The highest price category is 250€. The woman is insane.
Alicia is returning to Europe in July, although I think there won't be any concert in Germany. But if you have a chance to visit her in France or other country, don't hesitate.
Here are the tour dates:
July 08: O2 Arena, London
July 09: NIA Manchester
July 12: Paris Bercy
July 16: Moon and Stars Festival, Piazza Grande Locarno
July 17: Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland
July 19: Umbria Jazz Festival in Perugia, Italy
July 20: Lucca Summer Festival, Italy
July 23/24: Sporting Summer Festival in Monaco
July 26: Arenes de Nimes, Nimes, France
