    I saw that Radiohead have announced playing at the Santa Barbara County Bowl soon.
    Initially I was looking through the ticket prices, and they had some at $9200 each. Now I'm seeing that they are in the $5400 range. Perhaps the $9200 tickets have sold out.
    Is this normal? Even nosebleed section tickets are close to $600 each.

    Gen Admission was $55-95 here, though robots bought them all up immediately and who knows what scalpers are charging.

    Scalpers are trying to get $450 for the Run The Jewels show here in a week or so and Gen Admin on those was $20, so $5,000 probably isn't unreasonable to a scalper for a Radiohead show.

    Glad I got to see 'em when I did, I suppose.

    This is just silly. How much would it cost me to just have Radiohead play my back yard?
  4. No band on a Earth, no matter how much you like them, or worship them, as the case may be, is worth a 5K ticket, period, unless you have enough money for solid gold bathroom fixtures and live peacocks in your living room, (and of course lackeys to clean up after them), and you are exceedingly foolish with said money.

    They're certainly not worth a $55,999.00 ticket.

    But.. but... what if Bonzo magically reappeared and they all decided to play a one-off at Red Rocks and you could get front row for 5 grand.. . Right in front of JPJ.. Hmmm. Thats a tough call, even if you dont crap in a gold toilet.

    For me, I have a hard time spending much more than $100 for a concert ticket, no matter who the band/artist is. I just can't justify supporting the greedy ticket brokers and resellers. What sucks is that for some of the older artists, touring is their sole source of income.
  11. I'm so glad that the majority of shows I've seen were in small clubs for around $12

    I can't recall what I paid to see Metallica at the L.A. Forum, but I was so far away from them compared to when I saw them in the 80s, that I decided that would be my last Metallica show
