I was on facebook. £95 is a joke. Although if they are playing with avenged sevenfold and gojira that's 3 pretty big bands so that's why its so high
I paid £70 for Sabbath and im paying £70 for maiden thats bad enough
failing to prepare is preparing to fail

I was quite tempted to go and see them for the first time since the Black album tour.

But f**k paying £90+ for them...

I was happy to pay for sabbath because it was final tour etc (and SABBATH).

Metallica are money grubbing bar stewards and any love I had for them has sadly dissipated over the years.

I saw the Maria Schnieder Orchestra, last year. World leading Jazz Orchestra. 15 a ticket. I wouldn't pay 90 to see ANYONE.
I don't think, therefore I am not...

On with the dance and let the joy be unconfined (whether there's any dance to dance or any joy to unconfine)

I'm off to see The Tim Garland Electric Band in Cardiff next week - £12.00 a ticket. Bargain.

Seems a lot. I didn't go to see RHCP in December for this reason.

However, it's no more expensive than decent tickets for a West End show.

Ninety quid for ANYONE is stupid money unless it's for someone like Prince (RIP) or The Stones.

Highest I've ever paid for anyone was Seventy Five for Maiden, just unfortunate about their support band.

I paid $330.00 to see The Stones.

Totally worth it for me. Seeing a band you've idolized for over 50 years.

I would not pay £90 to see Metallica I was a huge fan of the stuff they did up until the black album and IMO anything after that is awful so there would be no way I would want to pay to see them to listen to the newer stuff and a few old classics and £90 is way to much but I would be curious to know how much of that £90 the band actually got after everyone else involved took there slice of the pie

I would pay 90 if it was a band I really liked. It is a lot of money, but I doubt there will be many unsold tickets. The most I have paid was 75 for Lionel Richie. I get more upset about paying high admin fees , plus postage for 4 tickets that cost 1,75 each despite them being in the same envelope.
