If they ask for it, and hundreds of thousands are paying it, I guess its not to damn high for this band.

Also, the average ticket price to see an artist/band live in 2019 went up to $96. DMB is below that.

How you personally feel and what the reality is, is a bit different.

    Haha. In all my excitement about the tour announcement on Thursday it took me a while to remember there's no violin player anymore, but even that is small potatoes to me now. I just want live music again, damnit.

    I feel like they could have easily raised the prices for Reserved and Pit another $15-$20 at least and still sold out nearly every venue

    Oh yeah, if they can get it... go for it. I'm all for them making the most money they can. They've just priced me out of their product (which is over $125 for an actual seat in venues close to me).

    I look at it like this - if other large tier rock acts are charging $125+ for the pit/close seats and DMB plays longer shows than them... I'm fine with DMB charging whatever they feel is appropriate, whether that's $125 or $140.

    Exactly.

    Again, my comments were about what I am personally willing to pay for DMB. I would pay that price (and more) for other acts. I've done it the last several years for DMB but I'm over it at this point.

    I get it. It must be hard living on a fixed income in your golden years. Leave the concerts to us whippersnappers who can afford it.

    CDC just said anyone vaccinated doesn't need to wear masks outside. I haven't worn a mask outside since 82 so it doesn't change anything anyways.

    except they said you have to wear a mask in crowded scenarios (concerts, sporting events)

    Re: Will potential Covid protocols impact your attendance this year?

    I chose the last option "I'm going protocols or no protocols" but I'm basing that decision on the fact that I'm vaccinated and the CDC said that vaccinated people can gather outdoors safely with non-vaccinated people within reason. If the show was tomorrow, I would still wear my mask, though.

    Re: Will potential Covid protocols impact your attendance this year?

    I’ll get tickets to holmdel if sets are good enough

    Me and my wife will be fully vaccinated in the next 3 weeks so covid doesn’t have any factor in this.

    With genesis coming and only doing 1 night DMB will prob not happen. Sets would have to be out of this world good. Zero chance of that
