newyawker---curious how many shows you've seen at levons barn, TXR, and sweetwater.
What i want you and others to tell me is what price would be too high? If 200 people would go if they were 1000.00 bucks each, would that still be ok? I do not get sick of reading, my wife calls me a rock head for a reason like this. I obviously have not been convinved by your 'simple solution.' How many I have or have not attended is not the point. I am just taking a side on the issue which is not a pure reflection on affordability on my part. This issue is not only reflected in this instance but with other shows. Roger Waters askign 260-900 bucks a seat for his 'Wall Tour.' is also out of bounds.
When would the price be considered too high?
dude the price is too high for specific individuals. sometimes it's already too high for me, but if i truly want to be there, i make it happen. there aren't 1,000 dollar tickets. there wont be 1,000 dollar tickets. you are sitting here talking about something it seems you've never experienced yourself, and then giving outrageous hypothetical situations that aren't going to happen.
Yes I was being fescicious regarding the 1k ticket price. If you take the common response given to me that if people will pay a certain amount then it is worth it, and take it to a logical conclusion, ie: more expensive tickets, that the issue. Burt, with all due respect, experience does not have to equal me taking a side on the issue. I am just using a small amount of intelligence to speak on the subject. If only those people who have 'experienced the magic' can speak on it, there would be no questions raised. And that is not how it works. I do not have to experience a 400.00 bottle of scotch to have an opinion on it. I did not have to go and see Waters to speak that 600 beans is ridiculous. So let me back up the 1K outrageous quip and say 250-500 bucks a ticket. This could be a possibility. All I am trying to convey is just because a certain group of people can afford those prices, does not make it woth that amount. There comes a point in time where a product is priced out of the market. If for whatever reason an iphone had to cost 1500 bucks because of Apples burden rate does not justify that amount. Therefore if for whatever truthful reason tickets to see certain shows become so expensive, size of venue, cost of musicians, etc etc, they can be considered too high and not worth it even if 300 people buy them.
