Rush are pretty much my favourite band, and I baulked at paying £70 a ticket for the Clockwork Angels tour. Bear in mind that with the limited number of UK dates, most people will also have to fork out for transport and accommodation/food. Makes it an extremely expensive activity that can only be done for special occasions.
As it turned out, I couldn't go to Glasgow to see Rush anyway and managed to sell my tickets on - for £60 each!!
As you can see, I am still some way off making my first million as a ticket tout!
Considering you can attend a full weekend at a festival (Wickerman for example) for just over £100, I just can't see how paying that much for one band is justifiable.
It is very frustrating and puts live music out of most people's reach - or at least seeing big bands live...
My band usually don't charge...
