Ticket prices for Paul McCartney’s first Australian tour in 24 years have been announced.

How much would you pay for top tickets to a concert by your favourite artist?

Frontier Touring, promoter of Paul McCartney’s first Australian tour in 24 years, is asking a whopping $2000 for a front row seat at the Beatle’s Perth concert at nib Stadium on December 2.

The Front Row Hot Sound package also includes an invitation to his sound check, priority entry, pre-show hospitality, a “limited-edition numbered” lithograph, merchandise, commemorative ticket and laminate “to remember your evening”.

Sir Paul McCartney will start his One on One Australian tour in Perth in December.

The $2000 VIP Macca pack is one of the most expensive in WA concert history.

On Black Sabbath’s farewell tour, which hit Perth Arena last year, fans could pay $2519 to have their photo taken with the heavy metal pioneers, catch the sound check and interview frontman Ozzy Osbourne in his dressing room.

Lady Gaga charged 20 of her “little monsters” $1499 for on-stage seating and a meet-and-greet with the pop star, among other goodies, at her 2014 performance at Perth Arena.

The top package at the Rolling Stones’ gig at Perth Arena in 2014 — also promoted by Frontier — cost $1275, while fans got the VIP treatment for far less on recent visits from Adele ($799.90), Prince ($702.95) and Justin Bieber ($639.56).

Ron Banks received global outrage after he wrote a negative review of the Perth leg of the 1993 Paul McCartney world tour.

When tickets go on sale on Thursday, fans of McCartney can also pick up the Hot Sound deal minus the front row seat for $1500 or splurge $850 for a spot on the side of the second row and merchandise.

The Beatles and Wings legend kicks off the Australian leg of his One on One world tour in Perth, the 75-year-old’s first show here since playing Subiaco Oval in 1993.

A comfortable majority of the 23,000 tickets are in the two top tiers — diamond, which cost $409.15, or platinum, worth $246.06.

Fans opting for the $72.75 bronze cheap seats will be in The Shed, which usually accommodates diehard Perth Glory fans during A-League soccer matches.
