voodoo: I realize the scalper prices are high. It’s just an indicator that the tix are probably going to be in the $150 range up front, since the Stub Hub prices are usually close to double the face value. The show is listed through the DTE website with all ticket info TBA. They said the Live Nation promoted shows are on sale on the 4th, so this one must not be part of the Live Nation promoted tour.

If a Vegas show is added, you can bet on paying at least $50 more for the same seats. That seems to be the M.O. for all the shows out here unfortunately. I miss the old days of Pine Knob when you could roll up to the ticket window and shell out $25 for a lawn seat for almost any show. I think I paid $50 for a pavilion seat back in ’91 when Alice in Chains opened for VHagar.

Yeah I still have ticket stubs from the 80s paying $7.50 for a ticket at DTE and I think $18.50 for the MOR show in ’88 at the Silverdome. These prices are ridiculous.

The 2015 prices range from $18 bucks (2 of the FL shows) to $250 (Hollywood) so far. (not all shows have pricing announced)

The point we’re making is that, back in the day, the ticket price was the same for everyone or may have been $10 difference for a larger audience. You didn’t have a range of ticket prices that doubled or even tripled in price from back to front like the Red Rocks prices for example which range from $59.50 to $175. Plus you end up paying an additional $20 or so per ticket in fees and taxes.

..and I don’t know that I’m making a point other than there is a range of ticket prices available so that if you really want to go to the show, you can, at whatever price point you feel comfortable paying.

I have to believe that is somewhat the bands decision. I have tix to see Godsmack at Mohegan Sun and the ticket price is the same all over the arena. I believe it is the same way for the Rob Zombie show too.
Just wait to see the tickets that Ticketbastard holds back for it’s Premium Seat service. Those will be astronomical although probably nowhere near the VIP package prices.

I am aware of the pricing and I get that those who have unlimited funds can spend thousands of dollars to see a show. Wasn’t trying to start an argument. I just feel the pricing for concerts is ridiculously high and we were commenting that back in the day, you could buy a ticket on the floor anywhere for around $15 give or take and you could be front row or 20th row. Now, if you want that front row, you have to use a broker or buy VIP and pay a huge mark up on an already over inflated price. Just stating an opinion. I wasn’t saying that there weren’t multiple prices and all that. Just that it makes going to concerts and having a decent seat very difficult for most people. Just my opinion.

I haven’t really looked, but 2015 VH tour ticket prices seem about the same as the 2012 tour. Given that, I wonder what the VIP package will be like. Those were $400, $600 and $900 for most shows in 2012.

Dug back to see what the contents of those packages were:
