I saw an elsebound train, on the overpass
In the driving rain, every ticket costs the same
For where you can't go
Mustang horses, champagne glasses
Anything frail anything wild
It's the price of living motion, what's beautiful is broken
And grace is just the measure of a fall.

Your ticket prices are fine and we always get a good show so what more could we want? :D :wink:

I don't mind paying more if its a band I really want to see, but its a question of what I can afford at any one time and how much I like that particular band as well. I would have loved to have gone to the Mencap sessions just to see Richard but at the moment I don't have a spare £40 for a ticket - and I think that's extremely reasonable for seeing several bands at once (even if I don't know who the hell the others are :oops: :*: ). I think about £45 on a gig ticket is the most I've ever spent but I haven't begrudged it in the least. I would probably pay double that for an artist I really liked but not more as its just not practical for me.

I do take issue though over the comment about dressing up - I enjoy the dressing up bit for gigs as I'm sure many people do - it is a night out after all so why not! Each to their own - I don't get annoyed at people who don't dress up so why should people have an issue with those who choose to?

It's the audience behaviour towards the artist on stage that should matter, not what the audience are wearing.

Roll on the next tour - and buy that merchandise so Richard can take home a paypacket! :*:

just to be clear and I suppose I should have pointed this out in my previous rant... There are still lots of bands and artists who I pay to see and I'd would not blink if I had to pay a tenner more, it is all about value after all. To name a few recently I forget what I payed in but The Felice Brothers & Richard would spring to mind I think Richard could easily charge a lot more and still sell these venues out to be honest. My great problem is with people like, or should I be saying the promotors of the likes of Morrissey, Macca and so on, that they can do a gig in Paris and cost 35 euros and do one here it will be 75 as in Mozzers case.
