Walking down to MSG I assumed the worst, but instead was met with a different scenario. The $20 seats were, in fact, sold out but the $49, $79, $99, and $179 tickets were still available.
$179 to see a concert. Ridiculous. And Maxwell was getting $250 for the very same seats there just a few months earlier. Now Maxwell’s great. But he’s not $250 great. No wonder several of his dates were cancelled and Prince had a quarter of his seats empty at the Meadowlands gig that was reviewed in the NY papers. I happen to love Prince, but greed ISN’T good.
The major concert goer just can’t win these days. One way or another you are going to pay through the nose.
