    Those are the cheap seats. They were charging $350 a piece for floor seats at Gillette Stadium in Boston. They ain't that good. How much cash do these guys need?

    The day of their show here in San Diego, they found they had room to open more seats off to each side of the stage, so they ended up doing it and including them in the "Golden Circle" portion of the seating diagram, thereby charging $300 for each seat.

    It's stuff like this that made me go out and get a part-time job as concert security. Why pay MY hard-earned ca$h to see bands live that have more ca$h than I will ever see, except for bands that I really care about and like? This way, I see it for free and I won't feel ripped off if they put on a shitty performance.

Crown thy good into temptation but deliver us from the twilight's last gleaming. Amen and Awomen. ."

    This kind of over-pricing crap is bound to trickle down into other tours quicker than you can you say "Van Halen Reunion".

    I can't wait to see what KISS charges next time they roll through... [img]graemlins/yell.gif[/img]

    Jagger blames the ticket prices on recent tours by U2 and Madonna. he says the Stones couldn't charge less than U2 did, and that the previous summer's tours set the price mark...

    Mick's full of shit. I had Golden Circle seats for U2's last tour and those tickets were $65.00 a peice.

    Not that it was any kind of a bargain...

    When you compare $65 to $300 per ticket, I'd pretty much call that a bargain!
