lerxt1990 Posted March 22, 2015 Share Posted March 22, 2015 Tickets to live entertainment events (including sports, music, theater, and other events) have really gone up in the last 30-40 years, far more than the rate of inflation. It's what the market will bear (sort of like college tuition, although that's a more complex story) but that doesn't make it less sh-tty.Is it really a "shitty" situation? Those that can afford it now can watch the show in comfort while sipping their favorite beverage rather than battling a crowd and having to watch the show pressed between people's sweaty armpits. It's expensive, but it's probably a more enjoyable experience for a lot of folks. Let me clarify - its shitty to some who cant afford it, or who can afford it and feel it costs too much. While market pricing is understandable, that doesnt mean I have to like the price of things :) The upside as I have said, is greater choice and greater access (and to luxury boxes etc.), and also greater shows (those large LED displays, advanced sound systems, fire and explosions cost money), and also riches for the band who dont make any money on albums anymore. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
