yea not sure what Starsky's beef with Pallandino is.  Dude is a solid bass player.  Not The Ox but then not many are.

Pino Palladino who I cannot stand
never knew who he was....but what a discogphay...lots of your favs on there
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pino_Palladino


 

1984 Don Henley Building the Perfect Beast
1983 Paul Young No Parlez
1989 Eric Clapton Journeyman (I know this is a top five for you)
1984 David Gilmour, About Face
1985 Dream Academy The Dream Academy
1989 Tears for Fears, The Seeds of Love
1989 Phil Collins, ...But Seriously
2011 Adele, 21
2019 Harry Styles, Fine Line

Palladino isn't in the current Who touring band, Jon Button is on bass

Just bought 2 $25 tickets to The Who in section 216 Row F.  The whole row looks to be that price.  Grab em before they go.

Goldstar or somewhere else?

Was that the price *before* fees?

Tickets for Haim's show in Jachsonville Sunday start as low as $10 each, fees included on Stubhub. Wonder how low the DC shows will go?

whoa!

what's the point at that point?!

Dc has a sold out show and I think they have a fairly big following in the area, so I don't expect these kind of prices at all
I doubt you will be able to get them below face, but then again, I suck at these kind of predictions


edit...dc is already at $29 for the sold out date...see I suck at this

looks like folks have overestimated the demand for live entertainment. there was an initial rush for concert tickets once they started happening again, but either that demand had dried up, or entertainment providers have over-supplied the market. either way: you get the current glut of discount tickets.

Not sure that’s true

I think the prompters generallly knew they would end up selling some tickets cheap

there still are LOTS of sold out shows (just look at the 9:30 site)
but with these tiered pricing schemes, they can suckker in a few thousand super fans and that covers the cost of 1/3 empty venue

the prices of the seat close to the stage are insane...and they have sold alot of them
but at the same time...sad the entire front row is unsold
but at $1160 (+taxes and fees too!) a pop, I'd want t blow job from brian ferry too

This has all been discussed ad nauseam

For the good seats at really big shows they use yield management systems ( like the airlines do ) to allocate seats so you can end up paying $499 for a seat the person next to you got for $99

It’s an attempt to keep as much of the upside or “cream” otherwise the formal scalpers get this and in essence artists are now scalping tickets to their hardcore fans… the Stones really pioneered this…they use the VIP packages which almost entirely consist of junk to move the good seats at higher prices

I doubt they could care less about the cheap seats

$16 for this great show!

Train – AM Gold Tour with Jewel and Blues Traveler

I think we should send Jules and Yada and get a play by play, would probably be the best $32 I've spent all year
