    As usual..pointing a finger at a demographic and suggesting they stole the money to be at the concert. Maybe it is me, I don't know. I just have a problem with someone who has no filter and often comes off as abrasive and claims to be totally innocent with no ill intent but is consistently offensive.

    I wouldn't pay 400 bucks to see RATM.

    I also wouldn't pay 40 bucks to see Kid Rock. Hell I wouldn't see him if it was free.

    Rage against the high ticket prices! Rage, rage against the dying of affordable tickets.

    I don't have $400 to spend on any tickets. I didn't know that about Rock, if that's true that's pretty cool.

    Do not go gently into that $400 ticket.

    I'm a big fan of rage against the machine, but even $100 per ticket prices me out of the market. $75 is about my limit.

    You would have to pay me to get me to go to a kid rock concert.

    For $400 a ticket they should be just “Miffed Against The Machine”

    I think the big issue here is the Stub Hubs of the world hoovering up all the tickets at get go.

    How do you stop that ? Restrict how many tickets can be bought at once ? Restricting how many tickets can bought per credit card number ? Tickets only sold by band websites ?

    I don't really have an answer

    The problem is the resellers. My brother got floor tickets for $145 each after fees because he bought them when they were being sold instead of from a reseller.

    It would seem that no matter what strategy you would try, someone would write a program to buy batches of tickets quickly even if they had to be ordered one by one.

    I don't know what he's like now and I'm not really a fan or anything, but i saw him at the garden during the devil without a cause album and the dude put on a great show...great entertainer. I never saw rage, i regret not seeing them, but no way $400 per ticket. I hope the chili peppers prices are reasonable, i really want to see frusciante again

    I don't like him or his "music". For me...he's irrelevant.

    i like the idea of Rage Against the Machine a lot more, a very very lot more, than i like the sound of Rage Against the Machine....

    i did however push and sell a ton of their first album, which coincided with my Seattle record store gig.
