As I mentioned in another thread, there is a small discontent amongst some heads regarding the price of tickets at these venues. What ye think?
My premature thought is they are quite steep.
And regarding this intitial post, i dont see discontent among deadheads. I see people angry that hey cant afford something and need to blame someone other than themselves for that. Atwell was spot on, if he made other decisions, he might be able to see every show. That is not his reality, mine either. I had a chance to possibly play pro football but i wasnt willing to put in the kind of work it takes get there. If i had, i could be VIP at every single show. Is it Phils fault i was too lazt to rehab my knees correctly? Not IMO
James cmon, this is a rabbit trail I will not follow you on. I am not angry one bit buddy. Just trying to have a good conversation about something other than "That was the best show" they ever played bandwagon. I will only repeat, whether I can afford it or not is not my point.
Now you sound like someone else here about bandwagons and cliques. If you want to have a real discussion, that is not the road to go down. I visit this board most days, and see many discussions that have nothing to do with whether or not every show is the best hey played. You started this thread, which is one of many you can find on this board in the past about the same thing if you wanted to see others opinions on this subject, and you have nothing to add to the discussion other than to try to discredit others ideas and opinions. so why should these tickets be cheaper? What is your logic as to why these shows should be whatever price you think they should be? Ill check tomorrow for a sensible answer. Sorry to be so aggressive, but this trolling is out of control on this board. Just stirring up shit
Why does questioning have to equal trolling? That confuses me!!!!! I do not know the 'other one' you are referring to either. I am debating against your reasoning. That's what people do when they debate is it not? I am not trying to discredit anyone or anything man. Was I a troll when i would bitch about hearing Day Job again for an encore for the umpteenth time? Or when Little Red Rooster was played for the 1000x? Deadheads have bitched from the beginning man and still loved the band. This is nothing new here James. Here is my premise in a nutshell
The tickets should be less expensive in order to give more people an equal shot in attending. The whole fiber and fabric of the band historically was not about pure profit. In fact it was for us. They played for us James. They freaking jammed their hearts out for us for 50 freaking years!!!!! Never once did I ever think they were in it for the money or to make a living. Why? Because they never led one to believe that was their sole motivation. if the ticket prices continue to rise, I believe their is a chance of certain people who can afford to go, will give birth to some 'super heads'. When will it end? If it becomes 500 bucks a ticket, are you honestly telling me that is ok just because someone can afford it?Thee is my sensible answer in a nutshell.
