With Beyoncé tickets reaching sky high prices, rumblings of a second Houston show heat up

Beyonce, The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour, February 2013
Queen Bey herself stops in Houston on July 15.

BeyHive fan club tickets to The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour's Houston date opened for presale on Wednesday morning, and productivity went out the window across the city as diehard fans refreshed and refreshed again in hopes of scoring a seat at Beyoncé's Toyota Center show. 

There's still a chance for those who stepped away from the computer empty-handed: Regular tickets to the July 15 concert go on sale at 10 a.m. Monday, and you can purchase those on the Toyota Center website, by phone at 1-866-4-HOUTIX or at most area Randalls grocery stores.  

Plus, there are rumblings of the tour adding a second Houston date. Madonna doubled up and so did Lady Gaga, so surely Bey can sell out in her hometown two nights in a row. 

"There is a chance demand could soften once it is announced that Houston has a second show, but personally I feel like Beyonce will be a hot ticket even with multiple performances," says Pat Ryan, co-owner of The Ticket Experience, a local ticket broker.

So either way, expect to spend big bucks: Though ticket prices start as low as $45, seats adjacent to the venue's main stage are already going for upwards of $1,200 on The Ticket Experience's site. 

"We anticipate demand to be very strong especially in the club seating sections because the floor is general admission standing room only," Ryan says.
