Pre-sale for Beyonce and Jay Z‘s blockbuster On The Run tour kicked off at 8am this morning (April 29) and, not that unexpectedly, sparked a minor Twitter riot when prices and seating plans were finally revealed. VIP packages range from $491 for a seat in the first 20 rows to a whopping $1746 to be right up front row. (A standard ticket will set you back anywhere between $36.50 and $222).

While not unreasonable compared to other major draws like Madonna and Justin Timberlake, the prices still made some fans balk and they immediately expressed their discontent on Twitter. There was a smattering of genuine outrage but most were determined to attend On The Run, even if it meant taking out a loan and buying binoculars. See the frustration, humor and mayhem after the jump.

Defenders soon came to the rescue:

Stubhub stuck again:

Prices and venue size quickly became a meme:

A group prayer went around:

There was a happy ending for most:

    I got my ticket for $121, and I am in the middle of the stadium. I’m good with my ticket.

    I got 2 tickets for $200 and I’m on the lower level, but in the back, right behind field seats. I’m good. I don’t want to be walking around in my heels on the field anyway. :)

    They should be ashamed cause they are both from the hood and this is one concert they should do on a giving back status. They know their most die hard fans can’t afford to pay those prices to see them in concert. Be careful who or what you put before God.
