Some acts/venues are charging less for their show tickets, some are charging the same and some are charging more.
These are challenging times financially for many fans. And if you have to travel and stay in a hotel to see a show - that trip can easily cost over $1,000.
Thought that it might be interesting to see how much ticket prices cost relative to our earnings.

OOPPPS!! I clicked on poll and thought that it would automatically go to the polls section: anyone know how to move this sucker?
Can't help with that Meg. But I know that the only two shows I'll go in debt for in 2011 are Cheap Trick and Rain (the Beatles tribute show). No one else...
come on meggie, some things should not be asked. like when we men get be-headed for asking women how old they are, ect, don't ask how much us men make..the answer, and by resounding comparison, is, a shi#Tload more than you and your household combined.. :devil: don't hate, it's people like me who keep the economy moving Big Grin
$69 a day/ not a joke. Before taxes.

The only thing that I know for certain about money is that no matter how much I make, I can certainly spend more than that!
I need a counterfit method: anyone?
And Kev...it WAS an annonymous poll, so you can enter your vote any time you want. And I'm glad that you make a pile of $$$ - that means that you can go to Cheap Trick shows and tell us allllll about it! icon_sunny.gif
Certainly not enough to pay the mortgage and the bills or go to any concerts, but I am making an exception.

I'm going to see Lee MacDougall on February 25th in New York City, have my tickets, only $10 each. I am one of the administrators on a facebook fan page for him, and I can't wait to finally meet him and see him perform. He is incredibly talented and very approachable, he's from England, and he's awfully cute, too.

Now if my circumstances improve and Cheap Trick comes near me, I will do my best to be there.
I am currently a "kept man". My GF works (owns several businesses, actually, including a strip mall), and I tend to the house. We've been together about a year and a half, and I've lived in her (now our) house for about a year. Big Grin Prior to she and I getting together, I'd been a machinist/Die Maker for 20+ years, supporting one child and two ex-wives. Time for a break!

We attend lots of shows, but we are quite picky about prices. And don't get me started about seeing bands without the original members (we don't do that very often; only in special cases....and CT without Bun E. is not one of the special cases; I won't see them without Bun E., sorry).

if i ever get to take my wife and 4 kids to see CT it will have to be on the cheap...

So far the news is grim: 70% (albeit a small sample) of us are under employed (unemployed or earning low wages). Not a pretty picture.

I do ok, but with a wife and four kids ever increasing fuel, water, electricity, groceries’ etc we rarely go out and concert tickets average around $150 each so we don’t attend unless we really really like the artist. Down here our mortgage interest rates are around 7.5% and rising what are you all paying icon_puke_r.gif

I think that our fixed rate is around 6.5% but our house has depreciated so much over the last 2 years it isn't worth the payment. Bummer. Sad
