Wow man. Those are bloated price tags for sure.
Blues is easy to play, but hard to feel.

I never thought Clapton was that good.

$3,295 for "premium front floor" tickets is is so not rock and roll.

Well, considering musicians aren't union, all the members of Cream are up there in age so this is probably their pension...LOL. But seriously, those prices are downright horrid. There's a local band from Pittsburgh that's semi-famous here on the east coast, and I NEVER pay more than $20 for one of their shows and get just as good a night's entertainment.

About $27.50.


Man, I can't believe those prices. That's just wrong.
Sometimes I hit notes only dogs can hear.

Well Dragonforce isn't exactly Cream as far as legendary status goes...

Still...pricey. I wouldn't see it. And I don't think I know anyone willing to spend that much to see Cream. I never liked them that much anyway, got old too fast (and I don't mean aged).

I want the P-funk!

So what does this say ?

Well to me it is:

"we have totally lost sight of what rock and roll is all about. We are a bunch of corporate whores who will pander to whoever has the most money. Screw all the people who bought our records and went to our shows originally. We don't care about them at all"

Utterly disgusting. If I had the money Id not go on principle !

It is also a sure fire way of knowing the show will be crap. Full of old lifeless duffers filling there bank accounts !

Id rather go and see Motorhead at 30 bucks a ticket !

Scalpers are scratching their heads.......................


Hey, I'd charge that much if I was gonna have a concert! I mean, WHY NOT???


Probably because no one would show up, that's why! :D
