she's not even that hot, either.
 
 I dunno, I don't see how the club doesn't go bust on this one.

Yeah, but have you seen her wife?  We're talking blonde trophy wife.

Are you kidding?  It's going to sell out in a matter of days, I'll bet.  She sells out Wolftrap year after year -- what's that capacity?
 
 Though, I will say, the tix are expensive.  I had four people ready to go, and three dropped out (including me).

Originally I had planned to get tickets to one of her shows for my mom's christmas present. But $75? Does she really think she's so great that she can charge $75? I didn't even like her much before, but now I have a new reason.

She doesn't play Wolftrap EVERY year.
 
 Plus, there are a lot of people who would see her at a nice suburban venue where you can bring a picnic and a bottle of wine who wouldn't venture into a standing, no seats venue in a so-so part of town with tickets costing twice as much. 4000 tickets at Wolftrap at $20-$45 doesn't necessarily translate to 4x1000 tickets at $75 each at 9:30.

75.00?? is that a new club record???  I wouldnt have gone to see her regardless because its not my cup of tea..but holy batshit..sorry thats just crazy. My salary hasnt gone up in 3 years due to this economy, no way those tickets should be that much. That is completely on the artist, obviously doesnt appreciate her fans too much.

Wasn't James Brown $75? I guess Militia Muffdiver is as much a legend as James Brown, right?

James Brown could probably get all the lesbians he wants, too.

I don't know but his ex had very big hands and a very pronounced adams apple.

Probably, but James Brown is James Brown. The Godfather of Soul. Melissa Etheridge shouldn't charge fans $75. She must think she's hot shit, but she's really cold diarrhea.
 
 P.S. was that last line from from welcome to the dollhouse? i can't remember.  :)

James Brown was $50.
 
 And according to an article I read years ago in the Hamptons, generally, lesbians make crap money. It's the Gay men who make tons of money and have half the expenses, therefore, the businesses were catering to Gay men, because that's where the money was.

Same here - We were actually looking forward to this one, but there's no way I'm paying that much money. And I'm one of the people that doesn't usually balk at high prices for club shows.

Well, in her hey day, I saw her at the beautiful Chicago theater where I had a plush seat and drank amaretto on the rocks next to my bi female friend who invited me, and those tickets were only $35...
 
 Would NEVER go now and pay $75, no matter how cute my lesbian date!
