How much will you pay for concert tickets?

Roger Waters of Pink Floyd is doing his Wall tour. I'd love to go but tickets will be about $100 each like they were for Dark Side of the Moon. I just can't pay that when we live paycheck to paycheck. I remember going to shows and having great seats for $20-$40 tops in college and high school. I'm not THAT old. :)

  • I was willing to pay $350 for U2 tickets they were suppose to be here in July, But then Bono did something to his throat and cancelled the tour. I was only going to get them because we had just sold the house. One of the best concerts I ever went to was free. The ALarm came to Spring Week at college. It was a good show. Nowdays I seem to forking over big bucks for Bob the Builder Live so might as well go see a show I like once in my life.

  • It depends on the show. My husband is a big Pearl Jam fan, and when they came we paid about $250 per ticket for front row seats (that he HAD to have) but that's the most we've ever paid for concert tickets, and probably would ever pay.

  • I know I wanted to see Robin Williams when he was at the Motor City Casino and the tickets were outrageous!! I can't afford to go anymore!! :(. I wouldn't pay more than $50 a ticket.

  • When I was working last year, I got two tickets for Metallica for my husband. I paid around $100-$125 for each ticket. Now that I'm not, there's no way I could do that. Those were the nosebleed seats too, just one row down from the very top. :-) Totally worth it though!!!

  • I paid $80 to see Cher. I would have gladly paid more. I had saved up $400 to cover travel, room & tickets for Michael Jackson, but of course that didn't happen. I'm paying $81 to see the Phantom Of The Opera in August. That said, Poison tickets were only $15.

  • Oh, I did pay over $100 a piece for Rolling Stone, but I gave them to my DH, I didn't go so I don't know if the show was any good...

  • the $100 tickets are the worst seat too...its so sad that middle class fans are just cut out of live performance anymore
