'cause I bought a music genre-related shirt for $12 and one for $10, and then a couple minutes ago I go on dispatch's merch store and I see t-shirts going for $25.

Then I remember much band shirts are pretty damn expensive and then I ask myself why so I make this thread.

So what's the pit's opinion on this business model?
Name's Luca.

it's to support the band genius and because they can. I went to see radiohead and those were some pricey shirts man, made $20 feel reasonable

I understand why they cost so much but I am not spending that much money for a band shirt.

Venues take a percentage of profit from merch sales. Bigger concerts require more of this revenue to bands charge more basically.

Most band t-shirts I used to buy were £10 or £15 though, the odd £20 one. That's basically the same price you'd get a normal graphic t-shirt for in a high street shop.

That's before I just started wearing plain t shirts and my life became cheaper.

The real question here is, why do bands even music?

Unless it's a cool band or artist. I say it gets cringey when you turn 30

I got a few $45 t-shirts, but not many. The black t's are nice. 4 of them in a pack for $10. Am I gothic?

And this. I was going to ask, but didn't.

All the bands I've seen sell theirs for $40 on the dot.

I usually bring $25 in case I see something I like and leave with exactly $25 in my pocket.

You spoilt, son.
