ELO comes to Florida
« on: October 23, 2018, 04:10:19 PM »


Got tickets for the Tampa show.

Floor seats range from $300-$600..  I ended up with Pleb seats @ $125 each. When did concerts become so damned expensive. Figured I'd better buy them today as the scalpers will have them all.

FYI the 'Presale' code is KC4BNR, not exactly easy to find and not distributed by any normal means.

I hate buying tickets man.

I would love to see them but not at those prices. For the price of floor seats you can buy everything they ever recorded and bootlegs and have enough for a decent sound system to listen to it all on.

Damn that is expensive.  Is Jeff Lynne the only original ELO member playing? (granted, he is by far the most important member)  I saw McCartney a couple of years ago for less than $100 a ticket on the lower level.  I would like to go but prices are getting ridiculous.

Death Metal shows are easier on the wallet, but harder on most folks’ ears   ;)

In 2009, I was ordering 4 tickets for the Yanks/Nationals game regular season game.  I had clicked best seats and the grand total was over $10,000, front row by the dugout.  I very carefully hit the decline option.

Yup!  Which is a win/win for us!!  I've paid as little as $12 to see some amazing hardcore, thrash and metal.  Even Slayer with 4 other top headlining acts was only $60. Id love to see some bands like Metallica and Pink, etc. but paying $110 to sit in the rafters is just not going to happen.
