For many, seeing Paul McCartney live in concert is a once-in-a-lifetime proposition. There was no doubt of a few broken hearts when tickets to see the Beatles’ bassist kick off his One on One” tour in Fresno sold out within hours of going on sale.
Of course, those without tickets aren’t completely out of luck.
A select number of new seats have been added to the concert, which happens Wednesday, April 13, at the Save Mart Center. The seats, in the lower level, will be released for sale on Tuesday, April 12, at the Save Mart Center box office only. Tickets will be sold via lottery, with numbers handed out from 7 to 7:30 a.m.
Box-office aside, there are also tickets available on the secondary market – and some are now selling at or below face value.

A quick check of popular reseller sites on Monday, April 11, shows tickets are still available throughout most of the arena and prices are beginning to level off. Last week, the cheapest tickets on reseller site Vividseats were priced at $106, well above face value. Today, seats in the upper sections were selling for just over $90 and there were seats in the lower levels just to the rear of the stage selling for around $100, less than the face value.
The reseller site Stubhub has floor seats selling for as low as $214; though seats in the third row are still priced at $2,000 each. There are also tickets available on sites such as eBay and Craigslist for those willing to deal directly with sellers.
This is McCartney’s first time playing Fresno and is his only California date.
It’s also the kickoff of the tour and the first glimpse of the 73-year-old’s all-new production.
