Please, for the love of God . . . shut down Lincoln theatre until the AC is fixed and all seats are replaced.

not really random because it was on Faux News...

old racist goes to a plantation called Monticello and gets told there were slaves there, goes on Faux News to complain of 'wokeism' on the part of the staff of Monticello... Į\_(ツ)_/Į

wait until he visits Mount Vernon...

and i feel sorry for the Monticello social media team, having to deal with well more racists...

I enjoy viewing this downfall of the human mind, based on politics.  I read the news every day, and every day it gets me upset and angry and affects my morning and sometimes the day of how I see what is around me.

I need, to stop doing that.

Well what I saw for Philly was $150-400

Seemed like prices had taken a big jump for the boss

$150 used to be the top for Bruce

Those are the prices I am hearing as well.  I've seen him probably close to 100 times since 1980.  The last tour I saw him was probably some of the best shows I've seen.  I don't think he'll top those shows.  I usually went through the hassle of getting pit tickets (standing in line for wristband/number; waiting hours for them to pull number from hat to see if you make it in pit, than waiting hours in pit for show to start). Those tickets were about $150.  That is my limit. If the Space method works as we get to showtime, then I'll grab a ticket, but not for $300+ for mediocre-decent seats.

There are way too many good shows for $30 out there to see.

not sure I agree
is your argument that people like bruce used to make boatloads of $$ from album sales and raido airplay and they are replacing that revenue stream with crazy high ticket prices?
Other than the big superstars (which bruce is somewhat a member, but I don't think he's really sold any albums since the early 90s) don't bands make most money off tours?

I have to imagine the payday for these shows is gotta be way more than it used to be
when every ticket in the venue of 40k was $40 conceivably the artist could make $250-500k for a stadium sell out
Now they must easily make 1 million per show at these prices....or are most artist now plaing to 2/3rd full arenas, but still taking home $750k a show?
So I think a 30 date US tour probably dwarfs what they were making in album sales and radio royalties 

lets be clear, part of this is because the secondary market showed artist that most of their fans would pay $200+ for mediocre seats
so lets cut out the middle man
They would not charge these prices if people were not paying them (although I'm still a little shocked about Roxy music, I see that getting anthem'ed as I can't imagen more than 4k people wanting to see that show)

I have no actualy data to back this up...

Itís rare that an act prices me out but I feel that just happened with Pavement Öitís not that I canít afford it but that it begins to seem obsceneÖ when I am used to paying x and you want 4X for a similar or worse experience I just canít do it

I think itís a lame move by Bruce and his minions Ö salaries are not keeping up with inflation so when you double prices itís pretty tone deaf

I get the argument that he doesnít play arenas that often anymore and there will be a second N. America leg that will hit stadiums

And also Bruce ainít getting any younger but the guy just sold his music rights for like $500 million so itís not as if he is hurting for money

Itís just jarring cause of all the BS bs about him being a man of the people etc

Creepy when you start seeing these ads pop up on your Facebook feed

In real bad taste and should be beyond what is acceptable



Fuck you Facebook
