Working class hero Bruce Springsteen may have to lend his fans some money to afford his New York show.

The New York Times says the average ticket price for “Springsteen on Broadway” is $497.

The Boss made $2.33 million last week after only five shows, which the Times called “an astonishingly strong financial performance.”

“Springsteen” grossed more than 26 other Broadway shows, including “The Lion King” and “Wicked,” the Times said.

“The only shows to bring in more money than Springsteen last week were ‘Hamilton’ ($2.93 million over eight performances) and ‘Hello, Dolly!’ ($2.35 million over eight performances).”

People.com added that the one-man storytelling show at the 939-capacity Walter Kerr Theater costs $850.

“There’s another option too: Pay some of the high prices resellers are offering online,” People said. “A recent search on StubHub have seats starting at $1,416.”

Springsteen also shared the official setlist for a compilation album on Spotify and Apple Music.
