    If you thought Football Tickets were expensive, consider gig tickets

    David Byrne has just announced he is coming back to the UK in October for a few dates.

    So go onto O2 pre sale for North Greenwich, £110 + add-ons total £125

    Is this a new record?

    Needless to say, I'm not paying that much

      Ridiculous price, but the music industry has turned upside down. It used to be that bands toured at a loss/break even to publise and sell their music from which they made their (or rather their label/manager) money. Now they tour to make a living. Even so, £125 is terrible.

      I saw Chameleons Vox for £15 last week. Bargain.

      Iím seeing him in Manchester next week and my ticket was £40 plus £6 fees.

      Is that for premium seats or something?

      Edit: He is playing Manchester again later this year and tickets are from £33.75. He is playing Brighton on 30th October too, tickets £49.60 inc fees.

      Quite right too.

      If you did decide to go, you may ask yourself, "Well...how did I get here?"

      To be fair, he is playing all night long.

      Most I have paid for a single music act was £60 for Kraftwerk last year.

      Saw the 'actual' Chameleons (you know how it works) a couple of years ago in Oxford for about that.

      Not even close I’m afraid, a pair of block a seats to see Barbra Streisand at the o2 about 6 years ago cost £1000 face value plus booking fee

      VIP tickets for Britney at Preston Park were £175 each and sold out very quickly
