From George Willis at the New York Post:

Seats are now being sold for $5,000, $3,500, $2,500, $1,500, $1,000, $750, $500, $250, $150, and $100. Originally, front-row ringside seats were being offered for $15,000 and the second row for $12,500. It's safe to assume none of those tickets was actually sold.
