    I don't want to keep derailing the thread, but the aisle seat thing is something new (like within the last month), which is exactly the point: they keep finding new ways to raise prices more and more. That is live nation's doing because it is happening across the board at all their venues. If it was the artists/promoters/individual venues, it would only be happening at certain locations. And I won't pretend to understand how exactly it all works, but I acknowledge that their are other factors/parties at work here, but there is a common trend that high fees and all these other problems are, pretty much across the board are much worse when LN/TM gets involved. But at the end of the day I'm going to continue paying up so I can go to the shows so I can whine about it all i want on the interweb but nothing will change. Doesn't mean I'm not going to continue to do so though.

    I do recall that Live Nation/Ticketmaster would include ticket pricing under the 'more info' section before tickets went on sale, but it appears they stopped doing it. Fees are inevitable (and it's been like this for literally 30 years - Pearl Jam sued Ticketmaster back in the 90s because of ticket fees), but it'd be nice to at least know the face value ticket cost before going to officially purchase.

    Honestly if anyone is complaining it’s you. I’ve seen you complain quite a bit recently on this forum.

    Is that really your only response? Not that maybe you don’t need to constantly bitch at people for voicing their opinions?

    Then maybe don’t start criticizing people’s posts thereby starting an argument?

    Anyways....

    Is anyone else going to the special fundraiser show on Long Island tonight? Dying to know what kind of set we're going to get.

    Maybe so, maybe not.

    Yeah, pretty wild they are playing RJ Daniels. That bar is a few blocks from my house (I grew up in Rockville Centre). People there tonight are in for a treat.

    After New Again I saw them play Vibe Lounge (even smaller than RJ Daniels) and that was fun. I think that was 150 capacity.

    This is belated response but just came in to say that when you see expensive prices, expensive VIP packages, etc. it's usually due to high asks from the act. From what I understand, promoters make most of their $ off things like beer sales and parking so most of the ticket price is to cover th eband fees.
