Don't you fucking hate them?
When there is an relatively unknown band making a gig in your town and makes the ticket prices so freaking high and you can't go and watch them because you lack money?

Orphaned Land is making a show tonight with 2 more local doom/post-metal bands and it's my best friend's birthday, and we love post-metal. And we won't fucking go to that gig because the tickets cost 25 KM (about 20$). ****, I paid less for Exodus when they were here. Why the fuck would you make astronomical prices of tickets if you're not really a top class band?

$20 is nothing for a show! Are you kidding??

I would pay twice that to see Orphaned Land, easily. Don't be a cheap ass. If you can't afford $20 for a damn good show, I feel sorry for you.

and then there's free jazz, which isn't even for musicians.

As my old guitar teacher once said: Metal really comes from classical music. The only difference is pinch harmonics, double bass, and lyrics about killing goats.
#5
A decade old band is unknown? $20 is astronomical for 3 bands you love? It's your best friend's birthday?

$20? I've paid more than that at the door of football clubs to listen to bands that haven't even made demos

Economical status of my country is ****ed up, so 25 KM is something in here.

metal shows are expensive because nobody likes metal

but they've still gotta make their money, so they have to charge you and the 4 other people that went the difference
It's over simplified, So what!

It's been a while since I went to a show where I spent more than $20 on tickets. Warped tour not included, anyway.
#15
For a comparison - one of the more popular Balkanian punk bands charged 5KM or 3-4 $. Exodus and Benighted played at Sarajevo Summer Metal Fest and tickets were 10KM or 7$.

This guy is from Bosnia and Herzegovina, you dicks. $20 might be worth quite a bit more over there.


How about $200-$300 US dollars a ticket for large international acts touring Australia?

Or about $80-$90 US to even see bands like Opeth?
#17
opeth sucks anyway. if they want to place a price barrier to their show then they're doing the world a service

If Bosnian prices are anything similar to Hungarian prices, and I'm sure it can only be better, then 20$ is still a hell of a good price for a quality show you want to see. 20$ is what? Like half a day's salary over there?
#22
Dude, $20 is nothing.


I almost never pay less than that unless it's a local band, or a fairly unknown band.

Good. When I go to a gig, I don't want to share the room with the poor riff-raff.

This. Last time I went to a poor commoner's gig some pleb spilled Foster's down my waistcoat. FOSTER'S I tell you!

$20? I paid three times that to go see Ozzy and Slash a couple years ago.

Orphaned Land is fairly well known. Hell, I even saw an Orphaned Land CD in Best Buy yesterday, and Best Buy's CD selection sucks ass. Point is, if you won't pay $20 to see a band that's been around for a while, you're a cheapstake, TS. I wish that bands/venues would only charge $20 here.

Pretty much.

Limp Bizkit are touring later this month, I was thinking of going for a bit of fun, but tix are about $100! I've paid more than that for other (better/bigger) bands, but for a group with only a 5 year or so popular period that hasn't had a hit in almost a decade, this is a joke.

-A Bass Guitar
AND...
-amps for BOTH of them!!

Of course sir! A little incentive slipped to the owner of the property and the knave was flogged, beaten and thrown out! I then took steps to bankrupt his family. Hnsa hnsa hnsa hnsa hnsa.
