Reports of $5,000 tickets for Bruce Springsteen’s upcoming tour have led a New Jersey congressman to demand Live Nation Entertainment Inc. explain its “exorbitant” markups and secretive pricing practices that “rip off” consumers.

“I write on behalf of my constituents and fans across the country that are excited for Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band’s 2023 tour,” Democratic Representative Bill Pascrell said in a letter Wednesday to Michael Rapino, Live Nation’s president and chief executive officer. “Hard-working Americans who are fans of Bruce and other popular entertainers should have the ability to enjoy live entertainment without ticket-sales practices that rip off consumers.”
