Seriously... meant to come back to this. I can't imagine not wearing ear plugs at basically any show at this point in my life.

How much have you all been paying to see bono(r).

generally in the same boat, but the sphere is on the exception list.  i had plugs with me, listened with and without, and decided they weren't needed.  ears did not ring upon leaving the show.

How much have you all been paying to see bono(r).

Floors were ~$260 all-in.  on stubhub, floors for this weekend's show (night before super bowl!) are going for $270, further out they're going for $600+.  just saw an article about how the prices of secondary-market tickets are falling, sounds like the band may have reached saturation.  looks like they go the timing right on when to end the run.

then ya gotta tack on airfare, hotel, requisite steak dinner, etc... it was an early bday present to myself.

We paid face value when they went on sale. Airfare and hotel we used points so it was fairly cheap. Although food and drink in Vegas is really expensive.

me too. we miraculously got in on the presale.

Airfare and hotel we used points so it was fairly cheap.

airfare from SEA to LAS was (and still is) ridiculously cheap*.  i was originally only going for one show, so i got a flight for something like $140.  someone on the team managed to get tickets to a second night, so i got myself a one-way back a day later... for around $100, IIRC.  hotel wasn't cheap because we stayed at a decent joint on the strip.  glad that we did.

*TAN: at my previous gig, a certain group of my workmates would go to vegas for the weekend quite regularly - like once a month.  lunch-room chat was all about hotel deals, what shows they saw, their favorite casino, etc.  they talked about vegas like going to the lake house - just a normal thing to do.  i thought it really strange at the time - who goes to vegas every few weeks??  turns out that for seattleites, keeping your eye out for resort deals + cheap airfare = rather affordable weekend getaway.  personally i'm fine going there once a year or less, but different strokes...

Although food and drink in Vegas is really expensive.

can confirm.  there are deals to be had, but you need to hunt them down, wander off the strips, etc... ain't nobody got time for dat.

Went to the Snail Mail show last night at DC9. Birthday Girl is gonna be one of the great DC bands. Just sayin'. They're young but in a very short amount of time, their songs are taking shape and really becoming amazing. Snail Mail was also really good. And Flowers for the Dead were solid as well. A lot of local talent. Very glad I got to go to this.

Mabel is actually a great songwriter. At 16 years old. Crazy. And she's got an incredible voice too.

I see the Narducy/Shannon REM recreation tour ended last night in NYC.  Had a blast at their Black Cat gig last Saturday.   Great band, with the uber talented Jon Wurster on drums.  They brought the energy and the show had a very warm inviting vibe to it. Some of the early stuff got me a little verklempt... Jason brought an old Towson St. friend on stage to share a nice story with us.  We got there early, after a delicious dinner at Doi Moi across the street, enabling my partner to grab a seat with a good vantage point.  Challenged and gf in attendance.

I was there too, right up front. Got to spend some time with the band...and Dave Hill, whom I love. That guy is awesome. They were very much in shock about the REM reunion in Athens, and it was a really big deal to them. So happy for them. I think it was a fantastic tour. Lots of love, really positive feedback to them all around.
