Short of spending $200 a ticket, I don't believe there is anyway I could have got better tickets for this show.

Great to hear!!! Right... go and give "Brian & Rog´s Revival Band" what they truly deserve...

No pre-chewed "hot dawgs" this time?

PS: Anyway... hope to meet ya Pieter & Erin and Fred at the "Horizon" and/or the Bradley Center next year... those ticket prices just indicate a special "Return of the Champion" to me !!!:-)


PPS: Here is Brian´s opinion about "makin money":

USA TICKETS

In reply to a couple of mail where people unhappy [see LETTERS].... among the notes of delight at the US tour -- Brian wrote...

Well, I sympathise, guys, but I know our tickets are nowhere near as expensive as the Stones, or Elton, or whatever (they COULD be ! ).

PEOPLE ARE UNDER NO OBLIGATION TO BUY THESE THINGS !

We've made a decision to work indoors rather than outdoors, so that the fans get a better show. Most bands elect to go out and do the "sheds" in the Summer to make money. This is about doing the maximum show that is possible, in arenas which are conducive to a show of the magnitude of ours. Of course the capacities are less this way, so ticket prices will be higher ... but, sound-wise, view-wise, and show-wise. I'll personally guarantee it will be worth it !

Look, I don't personally get deeply into the money side of things ... we basically take the advice of each local promoter, to make the shows economic. I'm much more interested in WHAT WE CAN DO, as musicians, and entertainers. So, I'm afraid, if anyone's unhappy about the arrangements, I'm not really the man to get into it. I do have a trust in our partners, though. It seems there are always complaints when the tickets go on sale. All I can say is we don't get many complaints AFTER the shows !!

Cheers
Bri

I should clarify that getting good seats through Artist Arena in no way, shape or form changes my opinion that they suck ass :-)

Did anyone else notice that the good seats were the less expensive ones? Floor seats were $125 and the tiered seats were $200. By the time I figured it out I would have ended up with seats way back, so I'm holding out for the ticketmaster presale and then go from there. Did manage to get 2nd row, center section for Milwaukee, though :-)

Apart from the double lettered ones (AA-FF), the tiered seats were $125. The $125 floor seats were like 20 rows back in the middle floor sections. Too many heads for me to look over anyway.

thanks for the info - I guess I got so frustrated that I didn't bother looking at any of the other tiered seats. And yeah, I'm too short to look over that many rows of heads. Besides, it's always my luck that some 6'4" guy who could care less about the show would be right in front of me - at least that's what happened in NJ. I think I'll hold out for better seats on ebay as the show gets closer :-)

Section 103 - Row DD (4th from floor)

Holy crap! I can't believe this is actually happening!

Shooting for Minneapolis too (I live right smack in the middle between them)

Besides, after spending $175 for McCartney, I was ready for ANYTHING for this...)
