It seems to be that tickets to the upcoming tour will be priced
somewhere in the range of $60-$100 (the norm seems to be $65 for the
floor and some uppers, $95 for lower reserved seats and some uppers).
In another thread tonight, Bobby (JimmyConway75) linked to a pollstar
article that summarized the pricing this way:
"From all accounts, the Boss will be structuring his ticket pricing on
the low-end of the scale
(approximately $55 to $95), with the general admission floor section
cheaper (if more desirable) than the surrounding seats. The low end's
pretty affordable for fans of a rock 'n' roll legend but, then again,
Springsteen by his own admission is a rich man in a poor man's shirt.
His fans expect blue-collar pricing."
I agree that Bruce is charging at the "low end of the scale" and that
Bruce's fans "expect blue-collar pricing." On the other hand, there's
always a group of fans for whom almost any prices are "too damn
high." So my question is as follows:
Assuming the $65-$95 range turns out to be accurate for most shows, do
you think that's a fair and reasonable price for Bruce to charge in
this day and age?
The GA tix are top price. The actual number of tix in the lower price
ranges is small in most cases.
