    So Primus is in town tonight and although I'm not a big fan I respect Les's talent. Anyone here seen them in concert? Are they worth $40 for general admission?

    No. But then I won't pay more than $15 to see a show unless it's someone who very rarely comes through town and/or I really, REALLY, like.

    Seems reasonable for GA. I've seen them a few times and it's definitely a good show(not a huge fan either). Is it just Primus, or is there an opener too?

    If you don't like Primus, you might be very bored. They can get kind of jammy sometimes. That said, I'm a big fan of Primus and the live shows are pretty fun for me, and Les does have the "Wait...what? What just happened?!" moments for you when he plays.

    depends on the venue.

    And if you don't dig them, why waste $40?

    I wouldn't since they are not much to my liking.

    Yes, they put on a very entertaining show, $40 is not much for a concert these days.

    Yes, That is the average price. If you respect Les, Primus is worth seeing. He is a GREAT performer, Eclectic, but a GREAT performer
     
  11. If it was my first time I would, but probably not if I have been to a few. I have no problem paying a little more to see musicians I like.

    Even if you're not super into them, if you've never seen them before it might be worth it. $40 does seem steep but not unreasonable.
     
  14. Personally, No... I love Primus, but ticket prices are getting too high.

    Not a chance.....paid $25.00 about 12years ago when they were "popular" and end up leaving the place halfway thru the show.And i was a fan....

    Tough call... $40? That's a tank of gas these days (almost... if you drive a subcompact). Or half a bag of groceries. Or dinner out with wifey if we snag a Groupon and don't go nuts on the drinks. Anymore for me anyway, I go about as high as a $10 cover charge and that's all I can allow myself to do.

    If you're not a hardcore fan I think I'd pass. Never heard of Dirtfoot.

    I'm going to the show in Clearwater FL for the same price and I expect it to be completely worth it. It will be my first time and I'm a fan. Compared to other bands, $40 is pretty cheap. I paid $80 for Iron Maiden *cheap* seats last month.

    I'm not a fan at all. However, to me it would be worth the money to see Les Claypool play. I economize as much as I can, but $40 seems like a fair price.
     
  19. Since mp3s, all concerts are expensive. $40 isn't that bad. I've seen Les play a couple times with different projects and it was well worth it every time.
     
  20. $40 is not bad at all for a concert ticket! I paid $80 to see Rush last July. However if it not a band you are really in to then it might not be worth it.
