If you've had to miss your favorite performer or band in the past few years because you simply couldn't AFFORD IT- I totally understand.
Look at the ticket prices for an upcoming Lady Gaga gig in Tulsa on April 4 2011:
"Tickets go on sale 10 a.m. Oct. 9, at $177, $87.00, $51.50, plus fees."
Just the 'cheap-seat' tickets for this concert would cost 2 people $103.00 less those dastard ticket handling "fees."
Add in parking- eating and other incidentals and you're talking probably $200 for a night out with Lady Gaga in the nose-bleed section.
