(WLUK) -- If you still want to go to the Paul McCartney concert this weekend, the odds are in your favor.

"We're selling them at... most of them at a discount," said Travis Loftus.

He is the manager of Ticket King in Ashwaubenon and says he has a little over 100 tickets to sell. He adds, there are a lot of tickets in the secondary market right now and it's a buyer's market.

FOX 11 asked him why some people might have a hard time selling their tickets.

“I think some of the face value on the tickets were a little higher priced than what they should’ve been and then I also think there’s a lot of people that bought tickets anticipating that they could resell them," Loftus said.

The owner of Connections Ticket Service shares what he's seeing at his Milwaukee-based company for Saturday’s concert.

"The combination of a large number of tickets on the market, a high ticket price and the fact that Lambeau Field seats approximately 60,000-65,000 people for a concert simply translates to too much oversupply for a market the size of Green Bay and for that reason, prices have fallen quite a bit since the show was initially announced," said Mike Holzberger. "Right now, people can go and buy tickets on the secondary market, in many cases, for half of what the original face value was."

Back in Ashwaubenon, Ticket King shares some of its ticket prices for the concert.

"Our lowest tickets right now are around $70. The average ticket is probably right around $140 for a good seat and then our best seat, we can get you like fourth row on the field for around $500 a ticket which is a steal for what they originally were going for," Loftus said.

He went on to say those $500 tickets were originally going for $1,200.

As for Holzberger, he adds McCartney is playing in Madison, on Thursday, at the Kohl Center.

"Which is much much higher demand because that one's only going to seat 16,000, okay, and that one is actually capturing some of the Green Bay demand for people who don't want to take a chance with the weather and sit outside," he said.

The Green Bay concert is scheduled to start at 8 p.m. on Saturday.
