Rather than quote it all, therby creatin another huge window...this is in response to Shannon387 and her post responding to an earlier one of mine:

Shannon 387-I'm also recovering from a blow and feel you.  I wish you the best in that and you've my utmost respect.  I have to make decisions about concerts a few times a week.  The good thing is the concert industry abounds with tempting shows.  The bad thing, in many instances, is the price.  I agree.  One other good thing is that my two favorite newer bands are $26-45 and tour a lot.  Young the Giant was inexpensive as well.  Twenty One Pilots was $59.50 and one of the hottest shows/tickets of 2017. The Killers were $65 last month.  Not all good shows are a fortune, but the behemoths are gonna be demanding platinum everything if it continues to rise.  My hope is it is close to topping out with price.  I'm single.  It costs me at least a hundred bucks extra to drive from Milwaukee to Chicago; gas, the usual meal and bottles of water or whatever.  Add that to $350 and I can almost fly across the Atlantic round trip. Add the babysitter I don't need and the extra $$$ for the kids' good time that evening and that's a night or two in a hotel wherever I chose to fly.  I don't see people paying much more than is already being charged, so hopefully it'll plateau.

The GOOYOW video-I understand what you mean by no big deal.  I'm going to use big deal differently and say it's a huge deal.  They have President Trump in a cartoon which also has the KKK but it could be argued that it's not really the KKK and I think that is fricking brilliant.  I've only seen it once, however; I watched very closely.  I like to let art settle before I view it again.  I like to try to remember which image was where and decide how I'd do it where I cannot remember.  It's fun to watch it again and see how accurate I was or was not.  I really liked it and that KKK but not the KKK possibility, for me, is perfect.  I think it's funny.

you can remove text from a quoted post if needed (as I just did)... just choose the appropriate part and hit DEL on your keyboard (exactly like I did it for this post)...

If you need to quote another part of the original text, choose the relevant part with your mouse, a tiny QUOTE THIS pop-up appears. Click it and it automagically goes to the writing post window...

also, you can select the text in question, copy/paste into the writing post window and then select the Quote Icon... which put the text in a quote window but without attribution...

Hope this is useful... no need to answer it, carry on with the topic in question...

is this in the USA alone? I'm sure most of the tickets have sold. if not maybe it's the cost?

It is the cost. Over $300 per ticket for lower bowl seats in an arena is just too high.

I understand the rationale for pricing them at that level (i.e., to discourage scalpers - if they buy them at list price and try to make a sizable profit off of them, no one will buy them) - however, it's making fans think twice about going to the show in the first place. Even without scalper markups, the tickets are just too darn much...

Trying to make it a backlash about the band's politics is just wishful thinking from Fox News devotees.

President Trump said, "In fact, I can tell you that I'm the least racist person on this earth.", after his s$#thole countries comment.  It's so nice to have faith in one's own leader.  Glory Days....they'll pass you by....Glory Days.
