Come on. $126?!?!?

Chesney is on tour with 2-3 other acts and only charging $66.

Jimmy, enough is enough already.

ummm... they appear not to have gone up from last year... first time in how long that tickets haven't increased?

and using Cheesney as a comparison is a bad idea...

Mean they were too high last year also.

Over $75 is ridiculous. Geez, I'm amazed I'm even implying $75 is ok.

Come on people, I've seen him nearly 30 times since '77 and the shows are getting worse.

Time for Jimmy to give back some loyalty.

I believe the lawn prices have gone down from last year, back to $33. I don't remember exactly how much they were but $45 sounds about right. I don't remember a lot of things, oh crap, my pants!

Half of your posts are whining about ticket prices... don't be so negative.

$126 for Jimmy and the CRB sounds like a solid entertainment value to me 8)

$66 for Chesney and whoever sounds a bit steep :-?

Jimmy's loyalty comes in the fact that he's still out there touring and making music. And don't worry, there are plenty of people out there who'll be happy to purchase the tickets you are no longer interested in :wink:

I think there's a pretty simple solution to this problem. Anyone who thinks ticket prices are too high can stay home and listen to the show on RM.

Not to mention broadcasting all of his concerts for free for what is it now, about 8 years. How many other artists do that?

KC has not been around as long as buffett.

If you look at any other singers that have been around for decades and still tour, their ticket prices are way up there too. i.e. The Stones, U2, Garth Brooks....

Just be happy that he is still touring; because the day when buffett stops, is the day you will have to pay alot more to see him either at a private showing in St. barth's, or at a Margaritaville.

Just my 2 cents
