This in light of the fact that I've just seen the jacked-up prices of Aerosmith tickets (over $500/pair,including fees, through their fan club!), and wondering how many of their diehards still plan to attend.
I would say #10, if I had money. :laugh:
is this just for the ticket or everything involved at getting to the concert too? Ticket only cost, confession time #7 for me. :O
And when they come to Canada once per year then it would be #10
Now, are we saying that we can chose the set list (within reason) and the venue?
I said $75. Hate to be a Cheap Prick , but it's so rare they headline , at a decent venue , and gawd knows who I'd have to sit through before they got on stage... :devil:
i went with money doesn't matter. if that's what floats your boat then so be it.

Now we're talking !

I think a nice New Year's Eve show at Coronado, including Champagne in the lobby would get me to pay a little more, otherwise ~ it's a "been there, done that" kinda thing for me, not worth the bigger bucks.
I have a lot of catching up to do, so I've done it all, and will continue doing so. But the deciding factor, really, is the time and place, and of course, how badly I want (need) to see them. :glare: :p
$28.23 and I will tell you why.

One evening I was in some nearby woods taking photographs. A shallow creek runs through a wide and deep ravine which has the woods on one bank and exposed slate and limestone on the other bank. Not particularly eager to get my shoes and socks wet, I was looking for a way to cross the ravine and get some shots of the rocks across the way. Several trees were fallen and I choose one that was the longest and widest to try to walk across carefully.
About four feet away from the side I started from, I slowed my walk to regain balance and then proceeded. Ten feet after that I again had to slow and finally stop to hold my balance. Remember that I am carrying about 12 pounds of camera gear in a backpack that I should have tightened a little more as it's weight was shifting and causing me to become nervous crossing this tree above the water in the very deep ravine.
I continued crossing the tree and my footing slipped, by balance was lost and I started to fall from the tree. You know in the movies when someone falls from a building and they grab the flagpole as they are plummeting? Well that really hurts. I was able to grab a large branch of the tree on the way down, hooking my arm over the top between my ribs. My shoulder felt like it was on fire but I could not let go and fall into this ravine and water. My camera bag shifted again and slid off my other shoulder down to my elbow as I raised that arm to prevent it from what sure would be my inevitable resting place down below.
I thought about my wife and my kids. I thought about some of the things I had done in my life. I thought about my hobbies; music and photography. And I asked for divine intervention. Please help me. I beg you. And I told my creator that if I was allowed to live through this ordeal that I would vow never to pay more than $28.23 to see Cheap Trick in concert again.
Just then the branch cracked. The sky grew very dark except for one break in the clouds that allowed the sun to beam down like a great spotlight, shining down to a point just below me it seemed. I followed the beam of light with my eyes and could see where the light did cast. A spot two inches below my dangling feet. The tree I was crossing was only six feet, three inches off the ground.
I gently let go of the branch and lowed myself onto a rock. Licked the blood off my elbow, tightened my camera bag and continued up the enbankment to get some photos of the geography.
Then I realized the battery on my camera was depleted so I got on my bicyle and pedaled home to eat ice cream and watch Seinfeld.
The End.

And what have you been smoking?

You can't lick your elbow!!! :glare: :upside:
No offense but I stopped reading after it said "$28.23 and I'll tell you why..." Big Grin

The most I've paid for one ticket was $150. That was for front row center at Madison Square Garden when they opened for Robert Plant.

Let's not talk about all the money spent on road trips all the years. I wish I had kept a record of that, just so I could look back on it now and say, "Did I really spend that on them?!"
LOLOLOL!!!!

I was just gonna say "I'll have what he's having !!"
:laugh:
Yeah, let's not bring travel costs into the equation. I am still suffering from last year's concerts overseas.

That's cool, Teri!
What year/album tour was that; do you remember? And did they do any songs on stage together?
If I had the money, I would pay a LOT to see them headline and I would love to travel to see them, but that's not an option for me. The most I've ever paid to see Cheap Trick was about $75. We are very lucky indeed that when Cheap Trick headlines we usually don't have to pay a lot. I saw them in the front row at Foxwoods in 2007 for $45. Priceless. Big Grin
