How far would you travel to see your favorite artist in a live performance?

This is the question that Vivid Seats, a ticket resale marketplace similar to StubHub, set out to answer by analyzing the median distance fans traveled for each concert ticket ordered on the site, dating back to January 2012.

As one might expect, people really went the distance for high-profile acts like Adele and Taylor Swift over the past four and a half years, but there were also surprising artists and bands that showed up among the top performers.

Read on to see which artists fans traveled the farthest to see in concert.
