    Default how much would you....

    be willing to shell out to see your favorite band or artist?

    I really want to go to one of Judas Priest's shows in support of their new release Firepower.

    Only thing is i want to be in front or within the first 5 rows but then you're talking about $500 to $1000! a ticket!. If i can get 2 seats for $500 within the first 5 then I'd get em.

    I know.... let the flaming begin

    If Rush went back on tour, I don’t care about the money. I’m getting front row seats! I would happily spend 1k for an unforgettable show. Most other bands that come, I just get tickets in the uppers that are under 100

    I spent a pretty penny on the full Dream Theater Platinum package which was front row seats, VIP back stage meet and greets and signed photos, tshirt etc. Did it twice... never regretted the price tag either. (This was with Portnoy though, I'm not a huge Mangini fan.. he is good though)

    Very good question slinky. I haven't been to a concert in years man. The last great concert I saw Rush's "Vapor Trails" tour back in 2002 and I forgot how we paid for tickets back then. I'll spend $100 a piece and settle for the "nose bleed" seats now days.

    If the Judist Priest is your favorite band...go for it and enjoy!

    About $1.50 to see the Bangles. $2.00 for front row seats. $3.00 if they look like they did 25 years ago.

    When I was younger and had money, I'd shell coin for concerts. Now that I have a family, I just cant. My responsibility is elsewhere. I wanted to see the original KISS line-up in 2000 for their "retirement" (LOL) My money went to my daughter's day care and I have no regrets.
    She's 18 now and took me to Rush R40 for my birthday/father's day, so we're square now. Ha!

    LOL Rick.....You continuously crack me up!

    10 bucks if I could meet Suzanna Hoffs in person and I'd offer to pay if she'd have a drink with me.

    all the best...

    Concert prices have been out of control for quite some time now. It's even more insulting when these bands come out using a very recognizable name, yet only 1 maybe 2 or even in some cases none of the original members are still in the band. I haven't been to a show in a very long time for these reasons.

    The next Iron Maiden concert that comes to my town I am taking my son (it is our favorite band). I would pay $150-$200 per ticket just to see the experience through his eyes (I have seen Maiden around 6 times). It would be his first time seeing them.

    I saw them a couple of times years ago. Front row seats were about $75.

    They are all good looking ladies, but Ms Hoffs......WOW. They all had very short skirts on and I remember saying to my GF that if those skirts were a 1/2" shorter, the whole mystery that is woman, is history.

    They put on a fun show, and they were pretty good musicians. What they did lack in technical skill, they more than made up for in showmanship.

    You're a lucky man Rick. I'm a fan.

    I see a correlation between concert prices and music sales. In a this day and age no one buys music so live performance is the only way a band makes money.

    Back in the good old days...The double album Made in Japan = $8

    Ticket to see Deep Purple Live in Detroit Michigan = $12

    all the best...
