Default Most EXPENSIVE Concert Ticket you've ever bought?

Hi

My most expensive concert ticket was 80 to go and the rolling stones! Can anyone beat it!

Except for festivals obviously, I went to see the Eagles back in 2001 and they set me back 157 guilders, which is 71 euro's which is about... 99 dollars.
But I heard from my cleaning lady that a friend of hers went to see U2, which set her back a staggering 210 dollars. Which is insane.

I think I paid around the 50 mark to see The Who in Melbourne in 2004. Back then, the 50+ gigs were quite rare but obviously that isn't the case anymore. Especially when certain pop stars with only one proper album under their belts can charge around 80 to finance their stage show and ridiculous clothing habits.

who did you go see? and never again pay that much or never again go to a concert?

I'm not a big fan of concerts either.

What I saw doesn't matter, it was a good concert, and a fairly big name for the $35. It's just, I say Melt Banana at $12, and many other damn good bands at under $20. No reason why the best bands are charging bar rates, where most things in arena selling the $50+ are old farts, or lip syncing pop stars.

I got to concerts every once in awhile, though. They're cheap due to my strange tastes, yet they're rare due to my strange tastes.

I'm not a big fan of high rates either. The more expensive it is, the larger the venue and the less intimate the performance. I see plenty of great shows for $25 or less at small venues.

Most I ever paid was $60 to see Tool maybe around 2000. Too bad it was outdoors and most of the sound I heard was coming from the speakers on the hill, versus ones on the stage. Just about the least intimate concert experience ever. I've seen other shows at that venue, but they weren't bands I really cared about so it wasn't a big deal...it actually made it feel more like hanging out with friends and shooting the shit in the park.

$30.00 for Broken Social Scene, not a huge fan, but they were pretty good live. If I see Black Keyes live in June, it'll be $45.00.

$127 + fees.



But it was ninth row, which was pretty awesome. I'll say it was worth it.

$60 to see Blondie back in 2005 I think

Worth it, they were great.
