Who's shelling out the crazy $ to see rage?

Just seen sargon post about this https://youtu.be/0-tcsDoeB_E
I have to agree with him the ticket prices are insane. That said i did buy tickets lol. It’s on my bucket list and considering I’ll never see beastie boys or sublime. I just couldn’t pass up the chance. Thankfully i got tickets for 70$ at alpine valley. Don’t think i could have shelled out 150$+. Anyone else going, what’s your thoughts on the prices?

I totally agree they’re an epic band. That’s why they can ask any price and people will pay it. Still 160$ for base seats ugh!

They coming to FL? I’d buy em in a heart beat, price doesn’t matter much if it’s one I really want to see. Dropped $3200 for 2 pit tickets for guns and roses. The memories with my daughter were worth every penny

Our local show has been sold in few hours of pre-sale 99% to traffickers… Prices doubled immediately… $90 for standing at pre-sale, now internet ads are full of individual offers from traffickers starting $180… Crazy…

Probably good bet on trafficker’s side because those who were teenage fans of RATM are now earning good money in their well paying jobs…

The concert i really wanted to see this summer just got cancelled. Ozzy and Megadeath. Did find out GnR is coming in Aug with a new show. Hopefully some more shows get announced or its gonna be a boring summer. The year my daughter graduated I took her to see the warped tour, 5 finger death punch,metallica, volbeat, shinedown, linkin park and gnr. @LemonadeJoe is right, all the band’s from the late 80s and 90s fans now have good jobs so you can count on the tickets being insane

I just seen korn and breaking Benjamin and tickets were only 20$. The venue was even small. Just show’s it’s definitely possible to not have crazy priced shows. Anti capitalist band practicing capitalism lol.

There are cheap shows out there. I wish warped wasn’t stopping coming this way. They had ways for kids to get tickets free and patents could accompany a kid for free. We went and saw atilla at a little hole in the wall for 15 bucks. It was awesome they allowed crowd surfing and stage diving. I was the only grey hair in the pit lol got free drinks for doing a Jesus walk across the crowd. It was a blast. My kid was like wtf didn’t know dad had that kind of shit in him lol

i think of it like seeds and medicine if its very costly it wasnt meant for me. the best seeds i have ever had were free, Saw alot of good concerts and never paid over 50 a ticket. they get waht they want because people pay it, stop paying it and watch the ticket price fall.
