Yeah, I've seen better shows than Bob Dylan for cheaper. Mighty Mighty Bosstones with Teenage Bottlerocket and The Flatliners was only 15 bucks I'm pretty sure.

Exactly.

I've actually never paid more than $20. However, if Dylan was in town.. I'd break.

For a single show I paid 16 to see Man Man.

I paid 90 dollars to go to a fest and it was worth it. I saw 32 band in 60 hours.

I went to see Slipknot with a group of friends too, and actually didn't mind it so much. This was after seeing them maybe twice before at festivals and absoluting despising them.

When I was in grade five or six, mom decided to surprise me and buy Rhianna tickets. We were all the way at the back and it cost way over 100$, if I remember correctly.

$106 to see Ravi Shankar was pretty ridiculous. The concert was ridiculously awesome though.

I can't believe how expensive that is...
DJ'ing is actually pretty complex, a few of my friends have Decks and midis and i tried learning at the weekend and couldnt grasp it at all. I'm very very good with technology and the like but decks just blew my minddd. It was so hard ad I was getting angry because it was too hard to grasp. it seems so much simpler than it actually is.

Pffft! I'd give my right arm to see him. $106 is nothing!

I paid $75 to see Tom Waits tour for his Mule Variations album.

At the time, I heard some hype that this was his "final tour (possibly)" which is what probably sent me over the edge. I'm glad I did, though. It was a great show and I otherwise certainly would've spent the money on less memorable things.
