Hoping to go to one of the sold-out Arcade Fire shows in Brooklyn this weekend? Hope you have lots of extra cash on hand.

Spin reports that scalpers and ticket-resale sites have snatched up passes to the concert and are asking as much as $5,000 a pop.

Tickets on Stub Hub start at upward of $229 each, but go up into the thousands on sites including Craigslist. One hopeful fan offers to trade a “therapeutic massage” and money for tickets.

The band drops their latest album, “Reflektor” on Oct. 29.
