Tickets are out of control but there are exceptions. I recently saw Tower of Power at the Cleveland MGM room for $80 in the 5th row. That show was amazing and they were working with a new singer who had just plugged into the tour two weeks before kick off who owned the stage and his performance like a boss.Glad you enjoyed it. Joe Walsh has always seemed to be a great guy, and doesn't look to phone it in on stage very often. The whole lot of them look to be not taking for granted that so many people still want to see them. That's a great thing, given how long they've been at it.
I live near Columbus, but Eagles tickets are way too rich for my blood.
In fact, a few days ago I was looking over tickets in the state for the next several months, and was blown away how much some acts (Smashing Pumpkins, Goo Goo Dolls specifically) are charging for tickets. We're talking Kiss/Eagles prices. It makes sense for Kiss, The Eagles, 21Pilots, and MCR to charge around $100 for general admission(or top level arena off to the side...), but when AJR, Mudhoney, Elvis Costello, and Danzig cost less than half that, it doesn't make much sense to me.
For what it's worth, the only acts I want to see this year don't come any closer than Cleveland/Lakewood, so I'm not the target GooGoo Dolls ticket buyer (as I deliberate $20 per ticket for Nekromantix vs $15 per ticket for Meteors knowing I'll spend $50 on gas to either...) But it baffles me that some random acts have snuck into the Kiss world tour pricing bracket.
I'm looking forward to Leonid and Friends again in June. Somehow they were able to get here and start their tour. It's an amazing group and I highly recommend their show. The show I saw last October was excellent.
