The listings below represent the cheapest tickets for Chicago and the state of Illinois based on both total ticket price and relative ticket price for the hottest events. For example, while a $1 MLB ticket clearly rates as cheap on an absolute basis, a $100 George Strait ticket might count as relatively cheap if the average ticket costs over $500. Often the cheapest tickets on an absolute scale do not make this list as they do not qualify as being “hot” or popular enough for the system to include them. Such tickets commonly come up in the pro sports category. Click on the Sporting Events link to see pro teams in your area with the cheapest tickets for each team featured.
