Prepare for your jaw to drop:

$30 - $200

That is WAAAAAAAAAY too much. I would expect to see Freddie resurrected from the grave for $200.

There is no way a full US tour would work with prices at that level. Average Joe is not going to come out and see "Queen" without Freddie for $200.

I totally agree.

In fact, the USA tour guides Pollstar and Billboard said that 2004 was the USA's all time WORST tour year and suffered the worst financial losses and had the most amount of music artists/bands...

...CANCEL their tours due to when tickets would go on sale for venues, the main USA promoter Clear Channell and the bands would notice that less then 80% or way worse of each venue would sell, so they would cancel altogether.

....The REASON...Bands were WAY Overcharging ticket prices in 2004............

This is NOT good common sense, in a tough USA economy and where MUCH bigger artists still were forced to cancel their tours...

..or LOWER their prices.

...Most artists...even Madonna and Prince, the only artists who did NOT lose money on their 2004 USA tours...intentionally LOWERED their prices, to show good faith to their fans....

..and MADE money in the long run because FANS responded and the each venue sold out...so Madonna and Prince kept ADDING tour dates and cities in the USA.


What the hell are Queen thinking? Even if my financial situation was much better, I'm not paying $200 EVEN if Freddie comes back from the grave.

That makes me feel as if they are taking advantage of people and not valuing their fans.

I predicted this months ago when we were all also talking about...

..on top of all this, in October, Queen will be competing with USA fans and their hard earned money ..with the likes of...

.... U2, The Rolling Stones, Cream, Duran Duran...ALL (except Cream) who are charging LOWER!!!!!!

For $200 Fucking dollars I better be the only fan there in a private show, with me on stage and champagne served to me. Christ on a bike!

U2 is charging lower? I don't think so.

I paid 60 bucks for first level seats 4 years ago, and on this tour the price for those same seats is 100.

Anybody know anything about the "pool circle" as shown on the Hollywood Bowl venue chart? I reckon those are the $200 tickets?

These prices are insane (then again I paid $180 to see U2 last fall, but that was a present) but I'm probably just going to pay whatever sky-high amount they want to charge because I'm crazy enough to do it! Queen (in whatever form) hasn't been here for over twenty years and I'm not going to take the chance that they don't ever come back!


Resistance is futile. You are now an orb.

With my flight, accomodations, ticket, and various travel expenses, I'll be paying over $1000 to see "Queen Without Freddie" in October.

In for a penny, in for a pound.

What a bunch of complainers!!!!!!!

My wife and I paid $450.00 per ticket to see them in Birmingham and Cardiff, plus air, hotel, etc.. from LOS ANGELES. How much do you spend on Big Mac's and Beer???????

Step up to the plate and enjoy your life.

It will be all assigned seating at the Hollywood Bowl. There is no General Admission there, even the pool circle in front has seats, though people usually move up against the stage when the show starts. But the Pool Circle is very small.

That's how I'm looking at it. Once in a lifetime is ... well, once in a lifetime. I was 9 the last time Queen in any permutation played in the US, so a grand seems like a fair price to make an (almost) lifetime dream come true. So I'm gonna pony up the dough.
