Hey, my first ever post in the Rant forum :) (I must be an extremely well balanced individual :*: )

Received a mailing in the post this morning 'inviting' me to an Elton John gig. No problem there, thanks very much but not really my thing...

Then I noticed the ticket price.


£230

That's right, two hundred and thirty of your English pounds. For a gig.

But wait - how very cynical of me. You get a 'Rocket Man' cocktail on arrival.

That's alright then...



Sheesh :roll: :roll: :roll:

We enjoyed the Elton John gig in Perth, the performance was great, but I did feel it was done on 'auto-pilot' - no real engagement with the crowd, and a gratuitious nod to Scotland at one point. Give me Hawley banter any time.
