For what it's worth, if it's true that TC only holds 250 people, 250 X $150 = $37,500. I have to assume that Phil gets paid more than that alone for one gig with Furthur. So my guess is most of the money goes to the performers and the support team at TC. And Phil is not making anything meaningful (in his world) for performing. Now maybe the real money is the $5 per stream costs and perhaps something from people dining once that's up and running.
This is in a sense better than front row center if you get to interact with the band.
This summer I almost spent $250 to stay in a flea bag hotel in Middletown where the band usually stays. I figured it would be worth it if I had a shot of seeing them. So I personally would happily pay the $150 a night. But I don't think I would see nearly as many shows for that price.
And my hat off for them trying to shut out the scalpers. Sucks there was so much pain, but I think WLewis is spot on, they are trying to do the right thing, which is appreciated. And that sounds like a kind offer to people shut out to get tickets to a rehearsal or something else at TC.
May God bless and keep you always
May your wishes all come true
May you always do for others
And let others do for you
