The 2015 NBA All-Star Game is coming to New York, and the lights will be bright in the Big Apple when the league’s top performers take the court at the Barclays Center and Madison Square Garden in February.

With the weekend’s events being split between the city’s two NBA venues, All-Star Game tickets will be the most expensive of the last five seasons on the secondary market.

The festivities begin on Friday, February 13. The highly anticipated Slam Dunk Contest, Three-Point Shootout, Skills Challenge and Shooting Stars Competition will all be held at the Barclays Center on Saturday night and the weekend will conclude with the All-Star Game at Madison Square Garden on Sunday night.

The average price for All-Star Game tickets this year is $3,255.99 on the secondary market, which is more than triple the price of what last year’s game averaged at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans at $1,019.89.

The 2015 All-Star Game currently sees its cheapest seat listed at $1,317, which is more expensive than last year’s game and 2012’s game total average price on the secondary market.

Despite the struggles of both hometown teams in the Nets and Knicks, the game has still seen exorbitant secondary prices, largely due to the allure of New York City and the league’s biggest stars all taking up a weekend residency in the heart of Downtown Brooklyn and Midtown Manhattan.

While a lack of excitement has plagued New York’s NBA teams for the majority of the season’s first half, the city will get its first dose of top-tier talent in February when the stars take center stage.

The last time New York held an All-Star Game was in 1998 at Madison Square Garden, putting an end to a 17-year drought of All-Star hoops in The City That Never Sleeps.
